You can easily insert symbols into a Microsoft Word document using the symbols dialogue.
1. Position the cursor where you want to add the symbol (though if you insert the symbol in the wrong place, you can always use cut and paste to move it as you would any other character). Go to the
Tools menu and select
2. Once the symbol dialog box opens, you can select the symbol you want to use. Once you click on the symbol, you will see it become larger and in a blue preview box. Note also that you can change the character set you wish to insert a symbol from other than the default “Symbol” font that is selected. Click
Insert to insert the symbol into your document.
3. Your symbol is now inserted into the document and can be worked on in the same way you’d work on any other character (e.g. cut, copy, paste, etc).
