Musical Notes.......

Request on behalf of Megan aged 6 1/2.

How do i type Musical Notes? You know them Crotchets and Quavers things.

I thought Kids where supposed to know about computers. She Say's "Dad's are supposed to know everything!" How disappointed is she going to be? ;-)

Anybody got an idea?

There are a few musical symbols in the Miscellaneous symbols character set. You can insert them in Word using the Insert symbol dialogue, or type them with Alter + decimal codepoint, e.g. Alter + 9834 on the numeric keypad.

9834 ♪

9835 ♬

9836 ♬

9837 ♭

9839 ♯

9838 ♮

Only the first two are in Times New Roman and Arial. You will find more in the Lucida Sans Unicode font. If you need more than that, you will need to use a musical symbol font.

Thankyou very much!

Megan wants to write a story. "I know when people speak you have to put quotes, but what do you put when they sing?" She asked.

"Musical notes" I said, not giving it much thought. "How do i type them?" Asked Megan.

"Arr, isnt it bedtime?.... I'll find out and tell you in the morning"

Cheers Pesala.......

lol Kev.

Or if you ever wanted her to be a copyist when she's older, you could buy Sibelius which costs loads of money and is used by pro's to write sheet music............

61/2, maybe not then....!

Sounds like several months of learning 'how to!'

Aint got time for that.;-)

Would you believe, a couple of weeks ago i saw that for sale at a Carboot somewhere for a tenner or there-a-bouts?

The mind boggles!
