I'm trying to insert an arrow into Boris RED text, but I can't get a key combination that will do it. In Word, using Za[f Dingbats or Wingdings fonts, I can get several types of arrows with a Shift + Option key combination and using the bottom row of letters on the keyboard. But in Red, although some of the other shapes appear, none of the arrows do. Any ideas? Thanks.
