Mathematical Symbols in Word for Mac

Sunday, 25 January 2015 | Comments

This is an update to the second most popular item on this blog, Maths symbols in Word (Mac).

In this screencast, I show a fast method for typing mathematical expressions involving basic symbols (like × and ÷). This method doesn't require the mouse to navigate a menu nor does it require an Equation to be inserted.

One note, in this video I show that there are many symbols available in the Character Viewer, like digits in circles, however if sharing documents with a Windows user, some of these symbols will not work for them.
