Using character MAP

What I thought would be simple:

Goto Annotate/Text
Click
Type a character in current font
So far, so good

Then goto Insert/Character map
The letter you just typed highlights

The only thing you can do is copy.

Now try to paste it after the character you typed earlier.

It wants to put it anywhere but there.

Why not act like Microsoft Word and Insert the character where it belongs.

Asked another way:

How do you use a Character Map with Annotate/Text?

regards,

Ron

Re: Using character MAP

Ron,
When you use character map, the text command goes to sleep.
You will notice that it changes to the highlight color.
You must click on the text box again to reactivate editing.
