Putting a hat over a consonant

How can I put a hat over P in word 2003 preferably in times New Roman? it is
not available in 'Symbols' in any script.

Re: Putting a hat over a consonant

Type the following:

EQ \o(ˆ,p)

Select what you just typed, press Ctrl+F9 to make a field out of it, and
press Alt+F9 to switch between display of field codes and field results.
You make the ˆ by pressing Alt+0136 (that is, press and hold the Alt
key, and type the numbers 0136 from your numeric keypad, not the number
keys on the top row of your keyboard). Looks okay with a lower-case p,
but not so good with an upper-case P.

If you need a hat over an upper-case P, then you can type Pˆ and then
experiment with multiple Advance fields to move the hat to the left and
above the P and then move the cursor back to a normal position after the
hat. In 12-point Times New Roman, you might try

P{ ADVANCE \l 5 \u 3 }ˆ{ ADVANCE \r 1 \d 3 }

If you often use this symbol, you can create an autotext or autocorrect
entry for it.

Re: Putting a hat over a consonant

If by a 'hat' you mean a circumflex accent then if you cannot find a font
with the character included (such as in a language font for a language that
uses such a character) then you can create a combination character using an
EQ field eg { EQ \O(p,^) } or
{ EQ \O(P,{ EQ \S(^) }) }

Putting an unusual accent over or under or through a letter Re:Putting a hat over a consonant

Much more simply, within any font that's well-stocked with Unicode
characters (such as Tahoma or Gentium), you'll find a group of
characters via Insert | Symbol known as "combining diacritics." (Be
sure you've selected "Unicode" as the coding, and not one of the
"ASCII" options, and a drop-down menu appears at the upper right of
the Insert Symbol panel. They're just before the "Basic Greek" group,
and they have Unicode code numbers 0300 to 0362.) There you'll find a
wide variety of accents (at different heights); double-click the one
you want in order to enter it after the letter that needs the accent,
and Word will treat the accented letter as a unit thereafter.

Re: Putting a hat over a consonant

Note that a disadvantage to using Superscript and Subscript (in e.g.
the chemical notation at the bottom of Suzanne's article) is that
those commands actually put a different-point-size character into the
text, making their lineweights grayer than the surrounding text. Her
example made with Equation Editor shows that this effect doesn't
happen, or is much less pronounced, there.

When using Overstrike to combine characters, also, better than Sub/
Superscript is to nest the field for character position (vertical)
inside the overstrike field -- and it isn't restricted to half-point
increments, so you can control the final appearance better. (You can
also use the Character Position tab in Format | Font to adjust
vertical spacing without changing size, but again it's restricted to
half-point increments.)
