  • Question

  • hi every one,

    I want to say thank you for every one helps me in my Arabic Equation Project. I want to know how to insert a text above math symbols like summation. I tried this code

     Document vstoDocument = Globals.Factory.GetVstoObject(this.Application.ActiveDocument);
                Word.Range wdFunctionR = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.Selection.Range;
                Word.Selection selection = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.Selection;
                Word.Range rng = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.Selection.Paragraphs[1].Range;
                rng.Font.Size = 14;
                rng.Font.Name = "Arial";
          wdFunctionR.Application.Selection.TypeText("\u01B7"); /// summation symbol in arabic Language.
                wdFunctionR.Application.Selection.Font.SizeBi = 8;
                wdFunctionR.Application.Selection.Font.Superscript = 1;
                wdFunctionR.Application.Selection.TypeText(" a");
                wdFunctionR.Application.Selection.TypeText(" ");
                wdFunctionR.Application.Selection.Font.Subscript = 0;
                wdFunctionR.Application.Selection.Font.Subscript = 1;
                wdFunctionR.Application.Selection.TypeText(" b");
                wdFunctionR.Application.Selection.TypeText(" ");
                wdFunctionR.Application.Selection.Font.Subscript = 0;
                wdFunctionR.Application.Selection.TypeText(" ");

    I want the "a" character to be above the symol. and the "b" to be under the symbol.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    According to your description of " want the "a" character to be above the symbol. and the "b" to be under the symbol", I assume that your objective is to get the text "a + b" vertical. I would suggest you use the Range.Orientation Property like this

    range.Orientation = Word.WdTextOrientation.wdTextOrientationVerticalFarEast;

    Hope it helps.

    If I misunderstand you, please feel free to let me know.

    Best Regards,

  • Thanks for your answer but it doesn't work as what I want. I want the "a" character to be as aboveScript and the "b" character to be underScript. Could I do that?
