Harvey noticed that when he is typing along in Word, he can create a registered trademark symbol (circled R) by typing (r). It is AutoCorrect that takes care of this change, but the resulting symbol is not superscripted as Harvey wants it to be.
You can easily correct this problem by simply changing the AutoCorrect entry to a formatted entry. Follow these steps:
Figure 1. The AutoCorrect tab of the AutoCorrect dialog box.
Now, when you type (r), the characters will be replaced with a superscripted registered trademark symbol.
