Thumbs up Answer: tilde over letter

Sure, I'd be happy to help you with that! Here's how you can print a tilde over the letter "r" in Microsoft Word:
  1. First, type the letter "r" where you want it in your document.
  2. Next, click on the "Insert" tab at the top of the screen.
  3. In the "Symbols" section, click on the "Symbol" dropdown menu and select "More Symbols."
  4. In the "Symbol" dialog box, make sure that "Latin-1 Supplement" is selected in the "Subset" dropdown menu.
  5. Scroll down until you find the letter "r" with a tilde over it (it should be near the bottom of the list).
  6. Click on the letter "r" with the tilde over it to select it, and then click on the "Insert" button.
  7. The tilde over the letter "r" should now appear in your document!

If the Control Shift tilde option isn't working for you, this method should do the trick. Let me know if you have any other questions or if there's anything else I can help you with!

Only A, N, and O will work that way because they are the only real letters
that typically have a ~ over them.

Anyway, you may have to use the equation editor to get the desired result.
The method to insert it varies depending on your version of Word.

I'm using 2007 but saving files as 2003. Therefore the Equation Editor will
not work for me. (Saves equations as pictures--really bad pictures.) Hoping
for another solution.
Thanks

Default tilde over letter

Hi,

In addition to the possibility of using the Equation Editor, you can use an
EQ field to add a tilde to any letter. To add a tilde to r, do the following.
1. Type EQ \o(r,˜)
The tilde ˜ in this step can be typed by typing 2dc and then pressing Alt+X.
2. Select what you typed in step 1.
3. Press Ctrl+F9.
4. Press F9.

You can also add a tilde to any letter by placing the cursor after the
letter and running the following macro.

Sub Tilde()
Dim myField As Field
Dim myChar As String

With Selection
.MoveStart Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=-1
myChar = .Text
.Delete
Set myField = ActiveDocument.Fields.Add(Range:=.Range, _
Type:=wdFieldEmpty, PreserveFormatting:=False)
myField.Code.Text = "EQ \o(" & myChar & "," & ChrW(&H2DC) & ")"
myField.ShowCodes = False
.MoveRight Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
End With
Set myField = Nothing
End Sub

Hope this helps,

Equation Editor 3.0 is still available in Word 2007: Insert Object,
just like before.

Also, if you do use the Word 2007 equation editor (aka "OMML"), save
it as doc (not docx), and open it up in Word 2003, MathType is able to
open and edit those "really bad pictures", and convert them to
MathType equations.

Type r. Then in Insert Symbol, go to the Combining Diacritical Marks
range, and find the tilde character. Or simply type 0303 (on the
regular keyboard) and then Alt-X. The tilde combines properly with the
r in Times New Roman; in other fonts, the alignment may not have been
programmed properly, because this isn't a frequently used combination.
