    • I usually use the brute force method, i.e., finding it in the character map,

      since . To find non-standard characters, I do the following:

      Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map

      When in the character map, double click on the item you want, then go back

      to your document and simply paste. For your Pi symbol, choose the "Symbol"

      font in the drop down menu, and you will see the character in the last

      position of the 4th row. Hope this helps

    • Although Character Map works for all Windows programs, the Insert Symbol

      dialog in Word (especially recent versions) is much more user-friendly.
