Can't paste special Characters

Hi

I recently downloaded a trial version of photoshop elements.  I want to use it simply for lettering and I need to use special characters. 

I create a document in photoshop elements, write some text in my chosen font, go to my character map, select the font again, select the character  I need, copy the character and then go back to my photoshop text.  I try to paste my newly copied character, but there is no option to do it.  Even control V won't paste it. 

I can create a new document from clipboard, and that will give me my character, so I know that I have copied the character.

I have watched so many clips on YouTube that say you should be able to paste...  any advice please?

Jules,

Do you paste within the text layer in the text input box (between existing letters for instance)?

That should work well.

Another tip:

The Windows charactet map may show you the shortcut for direct input for many characters, in the bottom right part of the 'charmap' dialog. For instance the Registered Trademark caracter will be entered by Alt + 0174 on the numeric pad.

I think it's safe to say that there is no paste special option in Elements - at least as of 2022.
