    Fractions in Word (Office 97 SP2)

    How come when I type 1/2 it changes to a fraction but not 3/8 or 5/8

    AutoCorrect has a few of the fractions built in already, like 1/2, but any other fractions have to be added.

    I have found out how to add, say 3/8 and 5/8, but what about 1/16 3/16 and so on

    See the references on fractions in additional written/web materials at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/basic_formatting.htm>Formatting Basics in Microsoft Word</A>. There are three different references of varying depth and complexity and I don't have time right now to get them for you.

    kweaver, the file you have attached is a shareware file. I doubt that you have the legal right to distribute it in this form. The fonts Serifractions and Sansfractions are, indeed, useful. Those who want the whole story can visit the author's site at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://homepage.mac.com/TomDar2/software.html>http://homepage.mac.com/TomDar2/software.html</A> and download the complete zip file.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>Edited by gwhitfield on 22-Sep-01 13:47.</P>*** Attachment removed. See JTill's response to this thread and <A target="_blank" HREF=http://homepage.mac.com/TomDar2/software.html>http://homepage.mac.com/TomDar2/software.html</A> for the font ***

    You might want to try this font for various fractions. I found it handy.
