[Way Off Topic] Scientific Fonts for Word/Excel

Lydia,

Sorry, but the cells I copied from equation editor didn't forward in the
text format of Outlook. I still think this is the way to go if they use
the Help tools in Word.

Hi!

I know this is way off from Vantage, but our QC guys are looking to write up
some statistical "stuff" and need some symbols that are nowhere to be found.
One is "mean average" -- it looks like an X with an = sign above it. I
have had a most frustrating experience on the internet where you can find
ancient Celtic runes fonts, but no modern statistical ones. Anyone have any
ideas? At this point, the secretary is drawing the lines over the x, but it
makes for an ISO nightmare when the final version of the document has to be
filed...

Any help is appreciated, off list is fine.

Thanks,

Lydia

Lydia,
Office 2000 comes with an Analysis ToolPak. It does NOT install by default
but you can add it on computers that need to use those fonts and it should
work fine for you. If you're QA folks are writing about statistical
measures, they may think you are a goddess if you install this tool for them
because it also adds a bunch more functionality to Excel. If you don't use
Office 2000 I don't know what to tell you but hopefully that will point you
in the right direction.

Thanks, Dina, but the symbol doesn't exist there-or in Excel. (at least in
excel you can do the calculation). But in writing about the process of mean
averages, you can't produce the symbol. My eyes are crossed from looking at
those little symbol boxes-if somebody knows where this one is hiding, please
let me know.

Thanks for the suggestions-maybe a meteor will hit me over the weekend. You
can't even produce your own "overstrike" in Word anymore (way back when you
could overstrike one character with another).

Progress.

Lydia

If you don't have a font with the required character in it, you are going to
have a problem. I'm sure there is an easier way to do this, but you can do
it in Word using the scientific equation field code. It would look something
like this (press Ctrl+F9 to insert a field code):

{ EQ \o(x,=) }

Note, you need to format the "=" to be raised by about 4 points. In Word 97,
this function is under Format, Font, Character Spacing.

Lydia,
Something you might try, somewhere in your windows system is a little
program called Character Map. It lists all the fonts in your system. You
can scroll through characters you didn't know you had. There are key
strokes in the status bar that allows you to "key" that character in. For
example " ? " is a jewish character that that can be copied to your text
document. You might find your symbol in there. Mine is located
C:\WINNT\system32\charmap.exe.

Have you tried using Windows Paint to create a small bitmap image to insert
where desired. Inserting a character X and drawing two lines over it is
pretty easy and inserting this picture into a document even allows a bit of
scaling to adjust size and placement.

If all else fails...
Many years ago we used a fairly inexpensive package that allowed you to
create/modify fonts. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of it. I
did, however, notice a few shareware/commercial packages on ZDNet.com:
ScanFont 3.13, TypeTool 1.2, FontLab 3.0 (not shareware, $400) to name a few
(it was bugging me that I couldn't remember the name...). I haven't used or
even really looked at them so I can't recommend any one of them, but I've
got to think that creating a font with a few special characters would be
easier than hand drawing a document over and over and over...

THANK YOU ALL! If I can't find it, I have some good ideas for creating it.

Really appreciate your help.

Lydia
Lydia,

this may seem cumbersome but it works! :)

In any document, go to the Insert/Field dialog. In the Categories list
choose
"Equations and Formulas" and in the Field Names list choose "Eq". Press the
Options button.

In the Switches list of the options dialog, select "\O()" and click the Add
to
Field button. In the Field Codes box, put the cursor between the parentheses
and type an x, a comma, and an underscore. Then click the OK button. In the
Insert/Field dialog, click OK again.

Your document now contains an x with an underline. The symbol you want is an
italic x with the bar above it, so you need to do a little adjusting. First
press Alt+F9 to expand the field code. The field will look like this:

{ EQ \O(x,_) }

Highlight the x and make it italic. Now highlight the underscore and go to
the
Format/Font dialog. Select the Character Spacing tab and make the Position
setting say "Raised by 9 pt". Click OK. Back in the document, press Alt+F9
again to collapse the field code. You should see the symbol you want. (If
the
bar is too high or too low, press Alt+F9, select the bar and change the
Position setting in Format/Font.)

Now make Word work for you instead of the other way around. Highlight the
symbol in the document. Open the Tools/AutoCorrect dialog. You should see
the
symbol in the With box in the middle of the dialog; if it doesn't show, make
sure the Formatted Text radio button is clicked. In the Replace box, type
some
one-word name that you can easily remember, but that won't otherwise appear
in
your documents -- for example, name it "xmean". Click the Add button and
then
the OK button. You're ready now!

Any time you want the symbol in a document, just type its name. As soon as
you
press the spacebar or a punctuation character, Word will replace the name
with
the symbol. Neat, huh? You can have as many of these as you want (as long as
you can remember their names -- or look for them in the AutoCorrect dialog's
list!).

Thanks, Dina, but the symbol doesn't exist there-or in Excel. (at least in
excel you can do the calculation). But in writing about the process of mean
averages, you can't produce the symbol. My eyes are crossed from looking at
those little symbol boxes-if somebody knows where this one is hiding, please
let me know.

Thanks for the suggestions-maybe a meteor will hit me over the weekend. You
can't even produce your own "overstrike" in Word anymore (way back when you
could overstrike one character with another).

Progress.

Lydia

Lyda,

In Word, Insert - Symbol. This should work.

Thanks,

Lee and Brian:

Wow! Thanks. I think I knew this once.

Lydia
Hi Lydia,

Take a look in Microsoft Word. You can use the equation editor. I am
using Word XP and it has you perform and "insert" - "object" then select
"create new" and scroll down to Microsoft Editor 3.0. I think in Word
2000 it will be something similar. I went into the equation editor and
used two symbols. The first is the (which has an open cell below the
line to add text), then I insert the "" inside that cell to achieve: .
Actually, all they have to do is go to help and type "equation editor"
and they should find everything they need to make up just about any
equation.

I hope this helps.
