Insert Symbols

From time to time, you might need to insert a mathematical symbol or special character into

your Word document. From the Symbol Gallery, you can insert many common symbols, including

mathematical and Greek symbols, architectural symbols, and more.

If you do not find the symbol you need in the Symbol Gallery, you can use the Symbol dialog box.

The Symbol dialog box displays a list of recently used symbols as well as hundreds of symbols in a

variety of fonts. You can also use the Symbol dialog box to insert special characters.
