    Inserting a Mac command symbol into a document

    thewinchesterau

      Ok, this should be so simple but it's doing my head in.

       

      Basically, I'm preparing an indesign document - specifically a clue card sheet for call centre workers who use a Mac platform.

       

      I cannot for the life of me figure out how to insert the various symbols for keyboard commands (such as Unicode 2318 for the Command symbol, or 2325 for Option).

       

      Worse still, I'm using a Mac - and whenever I copy and paste the unicode symbol from another application, i.e. TextEdit after dragging it from the charachter pallete it still doesn't display.

       

      Where I'm expecting symbols, all I see are these boxes with crosses through the middle (image below).

      INDD file was originally created using CS5.5 on a Windows machine, and where these boxes are appearing - font is listed as Segoe UI Symbol (An MS Office specific font). Cannot find an alternate font either, and my google-fu is letting me down finding the answer to this.

       

      Any help to get this done properly appreciated.
