How do I access special characters in titles

May 16, 2013 4:15 PM

I'm doing a title in Premiere Pro CS6 but I can't find a way to access the glyphs as I can in Illustrator. Any suggestions are welcome.

    What I always do is copy-paste to and from a text editor like notepad.

    If you are on a PC, just use Character Map with the font chosen, to select from the full set of characters. Copy/Paste, as Joe points out. I am sure that there is something similar on a Mac, but do not know what it would be.


    Many wordprocessors have direct access to a lot of different characters. In WordPerfect, it's Ctrl-W, with a drop-down for dozens of symbols, etc..  Again, Copy/Paste.


    One can usually use the Alt+___ for the numeric value of the character. Be sure to use the numeric keypad, and not the numbers at the top of the QWERTY keyboard. For instance, Alt+128 = Ç.


    In Titler, one can access many different characters. This article goes into more detail:


    Good luck,
