Type One Quick Dingbat

In QuarkXPress 6 or higher, if you’d like to set one character in the Zapf Dingbats font, press Option-Command-Z (Windows: Alt-Ctrl-Z), then type the dingbat character. XPress will switch to Zapf Dingbats for one character, then revert back to whatever font you were previously using.

Second tip: to type one character in the Symbol font, press Option-Command-Q (Windows: Alt-Ctrl-Q).
