Default How do I find a font for chemical formulas?

Need to write a paper for CHEM class. Need to superscript and subscript, use
Greek letters. etc. Any fonts out there specifically for this?

Subscript and superscript are available in any font. The keyboard shortcuts
are Ctrl+= for subscript and Ctrl+Shift+= for superscript. The long way
around is to right-click and choose Font, then check/uncheck the Subscript
or Superscript box.

Greek letters are available in the Symbol font and in the Greek sections of
most other TrueType fonts -- read

Some special symbols, such as equilibrium arrows, may be available through
the Insert Symbol dialog, but would be easier to insert if you use the
Equation Editor.

Any unicode font eg Arial/Times New Roman will be able to offer superscript,
subscript and Greek letters.

Jay, funny you should mention Equation Editor in the context of
equilibrium arrows, because these arrows are specifically NOT included
with Equation Editor (EE). In fact, EE includes 6 arrows for chemical
reactions, but equilibrium isn't one of them. Neither is an arrow for
an unbalanced reaction. MathType, by contrast, includes 27 different
chemical reaction arrows, including those I've already mentioned. It
also includes arrows with text slots both above AND below the arrow,
which EE does not. (EE includes arrows with a text slot either above
or below the arrow, but not both.)

In addition, the refrigerator has a door-mounted ice and water dispenser, which is convenient for getting a quick drink or filling up a water bottle. best side by side refrigerator without water dispenser
