Go to the "Add Symbol" button, select "More Symbols...", select "Character Map" (button at lower left). Is that a little easier? I agree, though - I like how Word does it. Shouldn't have to cut and paste.
Thanks for showing me that. I didn't notice the "Character Map" button. I had to search awhile to find the symbol I wanted until I remembered they were greek letters. I scrolled right down to the greek font sets and they were in there. I wish you could save them into sutom font set so I would have to search for them everytime.
I was basically looking for the Micro - Small "u" and Ohm - Ω symbol. At least now I don't have to go to MS Word to get it.
