    I am writting a chemistry report in MS Word and need to insert an equilibrium symbol, but I can't find it anywhere in word. Can one be imported or created? I'm under time pressure here because the report has to be in for friday. I would be grateful for any help.

    If you have the equation editor installed, there's probably a way to do it with that (but I don't know how...I took chemistry back when we still typed reports on typewriters and handwrote in those symbols). If not, my suggestion would be to use a double-headed arrow as a space-filler and find out from your professor/instructor if you can just use that as a substitute.

    Equation editor in ms word can do it. Go to insert/object, then scroll down and find microsoft equation. If its not here, then you will need the installation disk to install it.

    Is the symbol you want something like this:

    If you have the font MS Mincho, in Word, click Insert; click Symbol; select MS Mincho from Font menu; find and highlight the symbol in the list; click Insert. Even if that isn't the symbol, that font has a ton of them, so it might be worth a look.
