  1. I can find no way in MS Word to add a Greek omega with a circumflex accent over it. There is a way to add an omega with an acute accent, but not a circumflex. –NRL

  2. To add a circumflex to Greek letters, you need to use the Microsoft Equation 3.0 function.

    Go to Insert, click Object, click Microsoft Equation 3.0. This lets you insert an equation into the Word doc. A selection of buttons pops up where you can add most Greek letters and put any kind of accent with them. Also lets you put subscripts and superscripts with the letters. If you’re typing equations, this is a much easier way to do it, and it looks better.

  3. This was a really helpful webpage. Thank you so much!
