To insert a TM symbol, hold down ALT and type 0153 on your keypad (on the left of the keyboard), then let go of ALT.

   Alternatively you may be able to type (TM) normally and then the word processor will recognise what you have typed and automatically convert it to the actual TM symbol.

Hope this helps!

There is one more way that I can think of; say you want SM as trademark style after the text Sample.

So, just type SampleSM. Select only SM , Go to Format->Font and check Superscript.Click on OK.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for requesting me to help you. To insert the SM mark to go Insert -> Symbol. In the upper left corner select 'Lucida Sans Unicode'. The SM mark will be about 3/4 the way down the page of codes. The other way to insert the SM code is to type 2120 and press alt-x in the space you want the SM inserted in your document.
