How do I insert a smiley face in InDesign?


Question

This seems simple but I need to insert a black-and-white smily face similiar to this image. Are there any glyphs like this on the Mac. I got this from Microsoft Word it automatically does it when you type :)

Accepted Answer

The smiley glyph in Word is a streamlined mashup of AutoCorrect and Wingdings. Chances are really good that you have Wingdings (since you have Word), so you can insert it via the Glyphs panel as needed. Other fonts sometimes have smileys; check the glyphs palette for each font to see what's available.

As an alternative, you could draw your own smile in InDesign and then just copy and paste that inline while you're typing.
