Often, users of MS Office Wordthe need to use the arrow symbols: ←, ↑, →, ↓, ↔, ⇒, ⇐, ⇔, ⇑, ⇓. This is especially true for mathematicians and physicists in the preparation of reports. Despite the fact that it is quite easy to do, many people have difficulties.

How to put an arrow in the Word?

To perform this operation, you need to perform a minimum of actions:

  • open MS Word
  • open the "Insert" tab
  • In the upper right corner of the window, select "Symbol" → "Other characters"
  • Select the desired symbol with the left mouse button and click the "Insert" button.

For regular use of special characters suchroutine execution of actions is not characterized by speed and convenience. It's much better to put the most needed characters with keyboard shortcuts. To do this, select the character of interest in the "Other Symbols" window and click on "Key Combination". It is more convenient to use the "Alt + number" link, where the number is a sequence of digits, which is displayed in the same window "Other characters".

For example, to use the arrow ←, you must use the combination "Alt + 27".
