Accessing Special Characters in Windows

There are various special characters for typographic and formatting purposes in QuarkXpress. You can enter such special characters using keyboard commands  or

Choose them from the Utilities > Insert Character submenu. Each character displays differently when invisibles are showing (View > Invisibles).

To insert a special character other than a space — such as an em dash or a current page number placeholder character — at the text insertion point, choose Utilities > Insert Character > Special or Utilities > Insert Character > Nonbreaking Special.
