2195 views, 0 comments

It's pretty straightforward to underline a character in Microsoft Word, but if you are preparing a document with any sort of statistics, you may need to "overline" a character - that is, place a line over the top of a character or word.

Things you'll need:

  • Microsoft Word
Navigate your cursor to where you want to insert your overlined character or word.

Press CTRL + F9, which will insert a set of braces (this is command+F9 on a Mac)

Type in "EQ x to(P)" if you want to insert an overlined character above a P, otherwise replace P with your character or word.

Press Shift+F9 to get your character (option+F9 on a Mac).

Tips and Warnings:

  • Alternitively one can use microsoft equation editor (found at Insert>Object>Microsoft Equation Editor 3.0) which can provide a variety of functions, including overlines to any character.
