Chapter 4. Creating a Document with Word > Inserting Symbols and AutoText

Inserting Symbols and AutoText

Word comes with a host of symbols and special characters for every need. Insert just the right one to keep from compromising a document's professional appearance with a hand-drawn arrow («) or missing mathematical symbol (å). AutoText stores text and graphics you want to reuse, such as commonly used medical phrases, a practice logo, boilerplate text, or formatted table. For example, you can use AutoText to quickly insert the text Patient denies taking any prescription, OTC, herbal, or supplements or a graphic of your signature. Use the AutoText entries that come with Word, or create your own.
