  • for each symbol below

    • search for the Hex code
    • select the character
    • from the right pane, click add to favorites

    ⌘ – ⌘ – the Command Key symbol

    ⌥ – ⌥ – the Option Key symbol

    ⇧ – ⇧ – the Shift Key symbol

    ⎋ – ⎋ – the ESC Key symbol

    ⇪ – ⇪ – the Capslock symbol

    ⏎ – ⏎ – the Return symbol

    ⌫ – ⌫ – the Delete / Backspace symbol

Now, to insert any of these
