    I'm drawing a circuit in office xp and need to know if there is a way to insert an 'ohm' symbol instead of typing out the word for the unit.

    If you're using windows, there should be a program called character map. When you run it, select the font you want and scroll down to the greek letter section. You should have an Ù there.

    [I guess it doesn't show up properly:confused:]

    also, for quickie (instead of having to open the mapper all the time) if you look in the character mapper, when you select an icon/number/letter/etc, theres a keyboard shortcut for selected letter (ie alt+0220) you have to make sure you hold alt and use the Numeric keypad

    Within Office, you can also go to insert --> symbol. This will bring up that same character map. Plus, the 'symbol' font is pretty useful as well.
