When I try to enter something from the Character Viewer in TeXworks, nothing happens, but if I enter something from the Character Viewer in another application, such as TextEdit, I can copy from there and paste it into TeXworks and whatever I have copied shows up properly. Is there a reason that Character Viewer is not inputting directly into TeXworks?

TextEdit, TeXShop and others are Cocoa Applications using Apple's Text Frameworks while TeXworks, since it's cross platform, uses QT frameworks. The TeXworks interface is based on that of TeXShop so you can try that application that also comes with MacTeX.

Good Luck,
