That's where they can be inserted from so my question is if you select basic
Greek from the dropdown in symbols can't you see it there?

The Greek alphabet is there. Enter a lower case a and select the symbol font
and you will see an alpha. The fonts symbol, webdings, wingdings, windings2 and wingdings 3 have lots of neat stuff in them.

I have >tried using insert then symbol yet cannot locate what I want. Select where you wish to insert the symbol. Then: Insert/Symbol Select a font that has the extended Unicode characters. Try your default font first, but the Arial fonts have them, as do many others. In the lower right hand corner, in the **from:** dialog box, select Unicode(hex). In the character code box, enter 3B8. That should bring up the lower case theta if it is present in your selected font. Then Insert. ron
