Just look up this thread and copy it from here from now on: ☯
You might have more luck looking it up with its more appropriately spelled name: Yin and Yang symbol
It's decimal code 9775 if that helps.
Thanks Noel, I'm not sure what you meant but I copied your Yin Yang symbol to my desktop then pasted it in my Notes document. It took up 3 lines, which won't work.
I have left the Characters window open on my desktop and can drag the symbols to my doc but I'd still like to find out the Keyboard Shortcuts. They take up 2 lines unless I add them after so they don't change my font.
I found nothing on it on a Character Search.
I don't understand how the decimal code works.
Try this one... From one mac to another
This page has some more info on how to create this symbol using other means and OSs, but the MacOS instructions are minimal: http://fsymbols.com/signs/yin-yang/
Thanks, Pete. I like the size of this Yin Yng symbol in my doc better. Where did you get it? Did you drag it into your Post?

Here's an excellent video tutorial on Unicode keyboard input on a Mac that all Mac users might be interested in. This should do it for you.
Option 262f is the Unicode for Yin-Yang Choose Apple Symbols from the font list in Photoshop first. Some fonts don't support this.
I did a google search for the Yin and Yang symbol for Apple keyboards, found the page I linked above with the character already typed out in the header, copied it and pasted into a text editor that stripped other formatting and saw that it was still the yin and yang character.
So, I just copied and pasted into the thread here, and bumped up the font size.
The video that Gene links to does give another way to do this without the need for copy/paste. Thanks Gene!
With that method, Enable Unicode Hex Input from System Preferences > Language&Text > Input Sources tab.
Check show input menu in menu bar
Switch to Unicode Hex Input
Hold Option and press 262f -- ☯
You're welcome, Pete I knew the Mac had a way to keyboard-input symbols and I just had to find out.
Haha... You're a better man than I, Gene. I looked in a few places and didn't see where I could use a keystroke. I even tried Option + every key, and Shift + option + every key to see if I'd get the correct wing-ding. Nope. Dead-end.
Also I'm used to the Windows side of alt + numpad, but never knew how to get there (or similar) on Mac. Thanks for that resource!
