Greek characters

Greek characters (α, β, γ, θ, etc.) are common in mathematical formulas. These characters are not available in the selection box or the right-click menu. Fortunately, the markup for Greek characters is simple: Type a % sign followed the name of the character, in English.

  • To type a lowercase character, write the name of the character in lowercase.
  • To type an uppercase character, write the name of the character in uppercase.

See the table below for some examples.

LowercaseUppercase
%alpha α%ALPHA Α
%beta β%BETA Β
%gamma γ%GAMMA Γ
%psi ψ%PSI Ψ
%phi φ%PHI Φ
%theta θ%THETA Θ

Another way to enter Greek characters is by using the catalog window. Go to Tools > Catalog. The catalog window is shown below. Under “Symbol Set" select “Greek" and double-click on a Greek letter from the list.
