I went to: Text → Glyphs → and found the symbol. However, I can't get it from the window box to the artboard.

I've searched Google & YouTube, but cannot find the answer. How do I type in the Registered ‎® symbol in Inkscape?

If you are lazy (like I am) google the symbol as unicode, cut and paste. – DA01 Jun 30 '14 at 1:43
Most programs will let you type Option (Mac)/ Alt (PC) and the letter R to get the Registered symbol. Haven't used Inkscape yet. – ispaany Jun 30 '15 at 15:09

Open the Glyphs panel (Text → Glyphs). Select a text element. Click on the glyph you want, and click the Append button in the bottom-right.

If you want it in your clipboard, double-click the glyph to add it to the text-field in the bottom left of the panel—you can copy it from there.
