    Find Symbol macro

    I am currently using Word 2007 and am about to upgrade to Word 2010. I have been using a "Find Symbol" macro that was originally provided by Microsoft in a collection of supplementary macros named "Macros9.dot" for Word 2000 but also works fine in Word 2003 and 2007.

    Will this work with Word 2010 also, or does Word 2010 provide another way to search and replace characters in the Symbol font?

    My guess is that if it works in W2007, it will also work in W2010, since, according to its description, the macro adds the Symbol dialog to the search and replace function.

    For symbols inserted from a Unicode font (such as Arial, NTR, Bookman Old Style, Cambria, or Calibri), you can sometimes successfully search for the symbol's decimal (^####) or hex (^u####) value. I say sometimes because Word can find Unicode character values that were available in W2003 but doesn't seem to find those introduced in later versions of Unicode (and so, in W2007-13). These are just my observations and my spot checking results.
