    Symbol (Word97/SR2)

    Hi -

    Insert symbols

    When I try Insert/Symbol, they do not show on the screen, regardless of what view I try. I used different fonts, to no avail.

    (My Keypad is no longer functioning, so that's out of the equation.)

    I can't remember customizing anything that would change this. Any ideas?

    I reverted to trying AutoFormat As You Type/AutoFormat, but that didn't seem to function, either...

    Thank you.

    Have you checked the Fonts control panel and/or the Special Characters accessory to verify that your symbol fonts are still available? BTW, the Special Characters accessory is another way to insert symbols into your document.

    Can you insert symbols into other applications, such as Excel?

    Hans -

    Many thanks for your quick reply.

    In addition to what I had checked, I should have tried, before contacting the Lounge, ol' Occam's Razor solution: rebooting. That did it.

    Thanks for being there for us!

    Thank you for your suggestions
