## How to insert symbols into a Microsoft Word document

To insert GD&T symbols into Word, take note of the codes in the table below.

There are two types of symbols below.

Some are alt codes (ALT+248) and some are Unicode characters (25B1 then ALT+X).

Alt codes are entered by holding the ALT key and pressing the number code. Unicode characters are entered by typing the code and then holding the ALT key and pressing X.

## How to insert GD&T symbols into a Microsoft Excel document

Not all the codes listed below will work in Excel.

The ALT codes (ALT+248 style) work but the Unicode characters (25B1 then ALT+X style) do not.

The best way to insert the GD&T symbols into Excel is to copy and paste the symbols.

1. This is very useful, Thank you!

2. SURFACE FINISH SYMBOL

• Hi Jeffery,
Thanks for pointing this one out. Unfortunately, there isn’t a perfect match available. However, I did add a check mark along with the micro symbol to bridge the gap. Close enough for government work I hope.

Cheers,
Brandon

3. What about a True Position Symbol?

• Never mind I overlooked it. Sorry

4. Profile of a line symbol?

I added that one to the list. Thanks for pointing it out. The symbol looks a little different so if you want something a little closer, you could also try 25EO – ALT+X. I prefer to use the regular alt codes myself whenever I can.
Thanks again,
Brandon

5. what about depth symbol?

• Dave,
Added it just for you! I also updated some of the other codes so that more of them use the standard alt codes which I find easier to use.

Hope this helps,
Brandon

6. Centerline symbol?
