Did you know that there are music icons that you add to your Microsoft Word document without adding graphics images? Let's take a look.
First place the insertion point where you want to insert a music symbol in your document. On the Insert tab, click the Icon button on the ribbon, and then choose More Icons from the drop-down menu.
In the Symbols window, open the Font drop-down menu and select the MS UI Gothic font.
Open the "Subset" drop-down menu and select "Miscellaneous Symbols" there.
Scroll down a little (four or five lines) and you'll see seven music symbols:
- Quarter note
- Eighth note
- Transmitted eighth note
- Sixteenth note broadcast
- Flat Music Sign
- Music Natural Sign
- Music Sharp Sign
Click on the music icon of your choice and then on the "Insert" button (or just double click on the icon) to insert the icon at your insertion point.
You can insert as many icons as you want while the icon window is still open. When you have finished inserting symbols, click on the "Cancel" button.
In this example, we inserted a Beamed Aight note. The size of the inserted icon depends on the original font size in your document. To enlarge the icon, select the icon, click the Font Size drop-down list, and select a large font size. In the following example we went with 72 points.
You can even go one step further and copy and paste your icon multiple times to create an elegant musical border for your document.
And that's all that goes with it!
