Adding unique glyphs to your project is quite simple with the Character Palette, but you need to have it set up, to use it easiest. If you do not have an American (or possible other) flag in the menu bar of your Mac, you will need to check a box in the International settings within System Preferences. Under International category of the System Preferences there is a tab named Imput Menu, and within that tab there is a check box next to Character Palette. By checking this box, the flag will appear in the menu bar.

Once the Character Palette is activated, you need only click on the flag in the menu bar, and select Show Character Palette. The Character Palette will appear, and you will be able to navigate to the desired glyph.

Once the desired glyph is located, you need only make sure the insert location is highlighted. In the example below we see that the Text feild within the Controls tab of the Text Generator is the insert location. Once this is verified, you need only click the Insert button on the Character Palette.

Inserting from the Character Palette works in many applications, I have even inserted glyphs from the Character Palette into Facebook posts. You just have to make sure the insert location is active before you insert.
