Slashed Zero

Oh!

ø

There is a discussion of the slashed zero at:
How to Insert a Slashed Zero (0 Overlaid with a /)

You can also download the Monaco font that has a slashed ø
(Monaco is an embeddable font)

Andale.ttf (Mono) has a dotted 0

Seagullscientific.com has a font called Crystal

Windows has a free font editor. Type eudcedit on the Start>Run line.
Vic Laurie has a description of the Private Character Editor- Eudcedit

You could also use the EQ field to create a strike through and assign it to an AutoCorrect entry.

{EQ \o (0,/)}

The easiest is, probably Alt+0216 or Alt+0248 It's a Latin "oh" with stroke, but it looks close.

The HTML character code is ø ø

Zeros - Before and After

Nothing's a problem



"When you import data into Microsoft Access, trailing zeros may be lost. This will happen when you import data that is formatted to show these zeros, but where the zeros are not actually part of the data.
For example, in a Microsoft Excel workbook, you can format the number 1234 so that it will be displayed as 1234.000. When you import this workbook into a Microsoft Access table, the number will be displayed as 1234.
This article shows you how to preserve trailing zeros when you import data into Microsoft Access."

Document Panes

Divided Doc


To divide the view of a document into panes, use the tiny divider mark in the upper-right corner of the document window.

It's above the up arrow at the top of the vertical scroll bar at the right side of the window.

Click on the marker and drag it to where you want the document window divided.

The size of the panes can be adjusted by dragging the divider up or down.

You can look at the top and bottom at the same time, or have one pane in Page View and the other in Outline View

Double click the marker to return to the full view.

Link to Word

Excel to Word connection


The Insert Hyperlink dialog will allow you to link to any file.

To link to a particular bookmark in a Word document, you can specify the bookmark by adding it yourself, adding a # (pound sign) plus the bookmark name to the path and file name.

C:\My Documents\MyDocument.doc#MyBookmark

To link to a page in a Word document, add a pound sign and the page number after the document path and file name:

C:\My Documents\MyDocument.doc#4

Equations = Word 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016

Real text


Remember, back in the old days of pre-2007-10 Word. Equations were a pain. Messy to set up with the Equation Editor and difficult to edit and reformat.


Brace {yourself} there have been changes.



  • Equations are regular Word text (not objects), so they're integrated with regular Word formatting.

  • High-quality display and typography: we're using TeX standards and a brand-new Math Font to produce great-looking equations

  • Two input methods: UI and Linear Format (keyboard syntax)

  • MathML support: now you can write an equation in Word, paste it into a calculating or graphing application, and get results!
