Symbols are inserted from the Symbol dialog box:
On the Insert
menu, click Symbol
and then click the Symbols
Scroll through the list to find the symbol you want.
You can use the Subset
list to find a symbol quickly if you know what type of symbol it is.
The Recently used symbols
list updates automatically with the symbols you use most often.
When you've found your symbol, click it.
Note In an English–based system, you can't insert some characters, for example, Thai or Arabic, without setting up additional language support in Microsoft® Office. See Word Help for details on how to do this.
