Sometimes you need to insert a character that’s not on your keyboard, like a foreign currency symbol, a trademark (™), or a fraction like 1/3. For a few symbols, you can use the AutoCorrect feature to type them. For all other symbols, go to Insert > Symbol.

Use the Symbol gallery

  4. Scroll through the list of characters to see all the symbols available in your current font (normal text) in the Font box.

To see other keystrokes that convert to symbols, click File > Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect Options and scroll down the list on the AutoCorrect tab. You can also create your own AutoCorrect character on the AutoCorrect tab by typing a keystroke in the Replace box, and typing what you want the keystroke to replace in the With box.

Insert a fraction

Some fractions (1/4, 1/2, and 3/4) automatically switch to a fraction character when you type them (¼, ½, ¾). But others do not (1/3, 2/3, 1/5, etc.).

  1. To switch to a fraction character, click Insert > Symbols > More Symbols.
  2. In the Subset drop-down list, click Number Forms and select a fraction.


    • If you do not see the Subset drop-down list, look in the lower right corner of the dialog box, and, in the from list, select Unicode (hex).
    • Unicode (hex) selected in the Symbol box
  3. Click Insert > Close.


    • In Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote, you can use Math AutoCorrect to automatically insert additional mathematical symbols. Click File > Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect Options. Click the Math AutoCorrect tab to see a list of keyboard shortcuts you can type into your document to insert math symbols. Be sure to select the Replace text as you type check box. Depending on where you are in the document, you may need to select the Use Math AutoCorrect rules outside of math regions option.
    • In Word, Outlook, and PowerPoint, you can use AutoFormat to convert typed fractions into fraction symbols. Click File > Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect Options. On the AutoFormat As You Type tab, under Replace as you type, select Fractions (1/2) with fraction character (½). Learn more about AutoFormat.

Insert a special character

  1. Click where you want to insert the special character.
  2. Click Insert > Symbol > More Symbols.
  3. In the Symbol dialog box, click the Special Characters tab.
  4. Double-click the character that you want to insert.
  5. Click Close.

Insert an ASCII or Unicode character

When you select an ASCII (decimal) or Unicode character in the Symbol dialog box, its character code appears in the Character code box. If you already know the character code, you can type it directly into the Character code box to find the ASCII or Unicode character.

NOTE: Be sure that the correct character set — for example, ASCII (hex) — is selected in the from box. Otherwise, when you type a character code, the character that is displayed may not be the one you want.

The name that is displayed before the Character code box is the official character name in the ASCII or Unicode standard.

  1. Click where you want to insert the ASCII or Unicode character.
  2. Click Insert > Symbol >More Symbols.
  3. In the Symbol dialog box, in the Font box, click the font that you want.
  4. In the from box, click ASCII (decimal), ASCII (hex), or Unicode.
  5. If the Subset box is available, select a character subset.
  6. Double-click the symbol that you want to insert.
  7. Click Close.

NOTE: To insert an ASCII (decimal) character without opening the Symbol dialog box, make sure that NUM LOCK is on. Then hold down the ALT key while you type 0 and the character code on the numeric keypad (not on the number keys on the top row of the keyboard). Then release the ALT key. Only ASCII (decimal) character codes can be typed into a publication.

    • Lucida Sans Unicode (Office 2016)
  4. In the Subset box, select Geometric Shapes.

Adjust the size

Once you have inserted the symbol, you can change its size or color by using the Home or File tab of the ribbon. See Change the font size for specific instructions.

Make sure the symbols are included if you share the presentation

When you insert symbols like these, we recommend that you also embed fonts in your document. Otherwise, if the document is shared with others and opened on a different computer that doesn’t have the same fonts installed, the symbol characters may not look as intended. To embed fonts, select File > Options > Save > Preserve fidelity when sharing > Embed fonts in this file.
