Set up custom fraction auto corrections in Word 2004
Authored by: UltraNurd on Nov 10, '06 05:06:42AM

I agree; setting up auto-correct to insert the appropriate Unicode character is better for compatibility to. You can't easily copy-and-paste Word equation objects, but you can definitely copy the fractional Unicode characters.

You still need to use Equation Editor for arbitrary fractions, but for ½, ⅓, ⅔, ¼, ¾, ⅕, ⅖, ⅗, ⅘, ⅙, ⅚, ⅛, ⅜, ⅝, and ⅞, you're covered.
