I can use auto format in Word 2000 for smileys etc… ® © ½ ¾ ¾ … but cannot work out how to type… eighths sixths etc…1/8 5/6...does anyone know of a way to do this…

I have looked at ‘Insert object but do not have MS Equation Editor…just MS Equation 3.0… :confused:

You can make your own if a suitable font with them in cannot be found:

Type 5/6 and then select the 5, Format - Font - Superscript.
Select the 6, Format -Font - Subscript.

Keep in a separate document and just copy and paste as needed.

Hi Chalky.

>> make your own

kiwiguy's choice of words reminded me of a fairly unknown Windows Accessories curio ; "Private Character Editor". It's present in XP, any maybe earlier ; I've never checked. To run it (if you can), Start -- Run -- "eudcedit" -- Enter. Takes about 10 minutes to get the hang of (and a lifetime to master, probly :D).

Rgds,
Andy
