Does anyone know where the long division symbol is in Equation Editor for Word 2007? I've used it in Word 2000, but the new version has got me stumped.

If you can't find the symbol in the new equation editor, note that you can still make use of the old equation editor in Word 2007: Just click the Insert tab | Object | Object, and choose Microsoft Equation 3. -- Stefan Blom Microsoft Word MVP "Stumped Teacher" <Stumped > wrote in message news:... > Does anyone know where the long division symbol is in Equation Editor for > Word 2007?

But is it there at all? No one here can find it. Is there a way to place a shortcut icon version 2003 and use it in 2007 rather than go through the process you described? It seems to be better for more advanced functions than for the basics.

What exactly do you mean by "long division symbol"? There is certainly a division symbol (Ã·) on the Equation Tools Design tab. -- Suzanne S.

Maybe the old fashion long division with remainders. http://www.mathsisfun.com/long_division2.html -- Mary Sauer http://msauer.mvps.org/ "Suzanne S.

I suspected that might be the case. Your example can be created with pipe characters and overlines, but it's not quite the same as the "real thing" which looks more like a square root radical. The symbol in the old Equation Editor looks rather like a right parenthesis and an overline. -- Suzanne S.

Yes. It's in the "Fractions and Radicals" group, second row, second button. "Stumped Teacher" wrote: > Does anyone know where the long division symbol is in Equation Editor for > Word 2007? I've used it in Word 2000, but the new version has got me stumped.

If I'm not mistaken, that's the square root symbol. I'm looking for the same long division symbol. Any more ideas? "MarvinM" wrote: > Yes.

In my 2007 Word, they (one with answer field, one without) are in the bottom row of the Fraction and radical templates group.

If you are using Microsoft Word 2007, click 'insert' then go to the 'shapes' tab. Go down to the 'lines' section and you will see a shape called 'elbow connector' If you click this to insert it you will notice that the green rotate handles will appear... Click on this and rotate the shape around until it faces the right way for a long division symbol. If you would like to type in the numbers for your students simply add text boxes next to the symbol and type your numbers "Stumped Teacher" wrote: > Does anyone know where the long division symbol is in Equation Editor for > Word 2007?

This thread has been dormant for a while. But I do not see a "Fractions and Radicals" group. My equation editor has a Fractions group, and it also has a "Radicals" group. Neither has a long division symbol and there is no single group like you describe. Has the long division been moved in more recent versions of the equation editor? "MarvinM" wrote: > Yes.

I think the reference may have been to Microsoft Equation 3.0, the old Equation Editor rather than the new one that comes with Word 2007. That EE toolbar does have a "Fraction and radical templates" button. -- Suzanne S.
