Please feel free to nominate this question for the "most trivial matter--ever!" award.

Is anyone else using the copyright symbol (Alt-169) in floating text?  When I do, it prints as a superscript...so tiny it's barely visible, at least in the 10-point type I'm using.  I'd prefer that it appeared in-line at normal size...just as it looks when I'm typing it into the floating text box.  Any suggestions/workarounds?

Looks ok. here, see screen snap attached of the full page editor.
I typed Alt 0169  ; Alt 169 gives the symbol.
Some fonts are not scalable and therefore not suitable for Qimage but I don't think you can see those in Qimage.
I tested with Arial.

Owen,
I just tried to apply Alt 169 and I get no response at all in the floating text box.
To use the copyright feature in Qimage, one must right click on the image in the preview panel, main page, upper right, and select Copyright/Signature.
This will allow you to use a personalized copyright logo that you have previously made.
See screen snaps, although my logo thing is very crude.

Okay, it's just something hinky with the particular font I was using (Tempus Sans).  Tried a different font and it worked fine.

Alt-0169 rather than Alt-169 is correct, my mistake, but in some word processing programs I get the same symbol without using the leading zero.

Fred, I should have mentioned that to key in symbols like this, you have to enter the numbers using the numeric keypad.

Incidentally, I wanted the to appear in floating text because it's part of the info I print on the back of my photo note cards.

Thanks much for the prompt, helpful replies.
