    Have you tried typing
    PPT shares the same Autocorrect file with the rest of office and that is the default entry for the registered trademark symbol.

    Both the suggestions will work OK - as you would expect from such learned loungers. For extra information, in my implementation (which is W2000 and PP9.0.2716, and is therefore earlier than yours), Tools | Autocorrect already contains and with the appropriate replacement symbols. You can of course use this method/tool to add any other symbols you use a lot in a presentation.

    Thanks very much! I had forgotten about , as I had disabled that AutoCorrect option in Word some time ago. That solution works perfectly in PowerPoint. (However, Ctrl-Alt-R does not work for me in PowerPoint, although it's functioning just fine in Word. Go figure!)

    Anyway, I'm very happy. Thanks again, everyone.
