    1. Click the Insert symbol () button.
    2. Change the Symbol Set to the desired font (Arial, for instance).
    3. Scroll down until you see the appropriate symbol. Click on it.
    4. Click OK and the symbol is inserted into the text box.
  5. Click OK in the Text Editor and the ‰ appears in the text.
