    minus-plus sign

    Dear experts,

    is there a special symbol in Word that looks like the plus-
    minus, but inverted, i.e. the minus-sign directly above
    the plus-sign?
    Thank you

    minus-plus sign

    you might be able to find this supported by a font
    available on the net but it would take some finding.

    best i can think of is insert the regular symbol into
    word, copy it to publisher, rotate it and copy back to
    word - not very elegant i know!

    Martin,

    I don't know if there is a special symbol. You can create
    a fair representation with an EQ field.
    {EQ \o(+,-)}. The minus sign is an em dash CTRL+(Number
    pad hyphen). You will need to use Format>Font>Character
    Spacing>Position>Raised to bring the em dash up about 4
    pts. You can play around with this and maybe get
    something that will work for you. If used often, you can
    select, press ALT+F3 and create a AutoText entry for the
    symbol.

    The Field code brackets { } are entered using CTRL+F9

    It's glyph 2213 in Arial Unicode MS (in the Mathematical Operators subset).
