Microsoft Word Unicode Character Codes

admin

Below is the complete list of Windows ALT Codes for Math Symbols: Vulgar Fractions, their corresponding HTML entity numeric character references, and when available, their corresponding HTML entity named character references, and Unicode code points. Vulgar fractions are also called simple fractions or common fractions. Any single character ^# Any digit ^$ Any letter ^u8195. Em space Unicode character value search ^u8194. En space Unicode character value search ^b. Section break ^w. White space (space, nonbreaking space, tab) ^unnnn. Word 2000 Unicode character search, where 'n' is a decimal number corresponding to the Unicode character value. Type the character code where you want to insert the Unicode symbol. Press ALT+X to convert the code to the symbol. If you're placing your Unicode character immediately after another character, select just the code before pressing ALT+X. Tip: If you don't get the character you expected, make sure you have the correct font selected. See full list on fileformat.info. In Microsoft Word you can insert Unicode characters by typing the hex value of the character then typing Alt-x. You can also see the Unicode value of a character by placing the cursor immediately after the character and pressing Alt-x. This also works in applications that use the Windows rich edit control such as WordPad and Outlook.

These codes apply to Microsoft Word on Windows only. Users of Word for Mac should refer to the Mac Option codes.

If you are using another software package, you must use one of the other methods of inputting accents.

What Is A Unicode Character

Using the Codes

Record streaming audio on a mac with garageband. Windows assigns a numeric code to different accented letters, other foreign characters and special mathematical symbols. For instance the code for lower case á is 0225, and the code for capital Á is 0193. The ALT key input is used to manually insert these letters and symbols by calling the numeric code assigned to them.

To Use the Codes

Unicode Character Codes Table

  1. Place your cursor in the location where you wish to insert a special character.
  2. Activate the numeric key pad on the right of the keyboard by pressing Num Lock (upper right of keyboard). The Num Lock light on the keyboard will indicate that the numeric key pad is on.
    NOTE: You must use the numeric key pad; if you use the number keys on the top of the keyboard, the characters will not appear. If you are on a laptop or computer without a separate numeric keypad one of the other methods is recommended.
  3. While pressing down the ALT key, type the four-digit code on the numeric key pad at the right edge of the keyboard. The codes are 'case sensitive.' For instance, the code for lower-case á is ALT+0225, but capital Á is ALT+0193.
    NOTE: If you have the International keyboard activated, you will only be able to input codes with the ALT key on the left side of the keyboard.
  4. Release the ALT key. The character will appear when the ALT key is released.
    NOTE: You must include the initial zero in the code. For example to insert á(0225) you must type ALT+0225, NOT ALT+225.
