Hi, How to I create the copyright symbol (the c in the circle) in MuseScore?


How to enter a copyright symbol

You can make a © symbol using keystrokes on various operating systems:

      Windows: Alt + 0 1 6 9    (numbers entered on NumPad)

     MacOS: Option + g

Indeed! In Linux the Compose key can be difficult to find. On the Sun Workstations I used 30 years ago, there was a specific "compose" key. Now you will have to assign one of the other keys to become the compose key. Here are instructions for Ubuntu. It should work similarly for other Linux variants I guess.

My way of handling this is to do a web search for "copyright symbol" and then copy/paste from the result.
