Is there a Musical Note symbol I can insert in a Word doc?

Discussion in 'Microsoft Word Document Management' started by Richard Streelman, Apr 8, 2009.

  1. I'm using WORD 2003 SP3

    I'd like to be able to insert a "musical note symbol" into a document.

    For example, if "#" was that symbol, I could type a cheery:

    ## Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday to You! ##

    ....complete with 4 musical note symbols. Thanks for your help!

    In the Arial Unicode MS and MS Gothic fonts, among others, you'll find quarter,
    eighth, and sixteenth notes at Unicode numbers 2669 through 266C. For example,
    to insert a quarter note, type 2669 in the document and press Alt+X.

  3. There are two musical note characters in Times New Roman, Arial, Courier
    New, and other fonts, in the Miscellaneous Dingbats character subset at 266A
    and 266B.
