  • Well I m not sure if I understood the question right, but you cannot insert Symbols into project which gets directly visible; but you can insert symbols in NOTE field of a task. It provides mechanim to insert objects - PPT/GIF/DOC etc as an artifact against a task.

  • A quick way to bring up the character map to use is:

    From the start menu, RUN "charmap"


    SELECT the character(s) you want.


    then switch to Project and PASTE where you want them.

    Or you could just use MS Word of course. :-)

  • Another part of the problem is that symbols typically are font specific and in Project a filed can only have one font. That menas it's easy to have a symbol in a field, but not easy to mix text and symbols unless the symbol happens to be part of teh same font as the rest of the field.
