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:
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 picturesreally bad pictures.) Hoping for another solution.

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,Ëœ) The tilde Ëœ 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, Pesach Shelnitz My Web site: http://makeofficework.com "Local_IT" wrote: Only A, N, and O will work that way because they are the only real letters that typically have a ~ over them.

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 AltX. 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.
