I don't know if I'll be sent up the river for this, but here you are:
How do I integrate these symbols in my document?
I can open the zip file, and what do I do now?

Thanks for your help.

A quick question: does this font set include the "Datum Feature" (ISO) symbol? This particular symbol was changed from the previous GD&T Standard version.
I am not sure what your interpretation of "Datum Feature" (ISO) symbol is? Are speaking of the "triangle" to note a Datum feature? If so, no it is not there. I also noticed no use of the symbol U (similar to M for MMC etc.)

In the link I provided you can download the program under a trial version and see if it fits your needs.
For creating AS9102 form3 and other reports I have found it invaluable!

Thanks for your help.
Simply copy and paste the TTF file into your Fonts folder, this will automatically install the font.
Typical path:
"C:\WINDOWS\FONTS"

Once installed it will be ready to use in most applications. Here is an Excel application example that is typical to most applications.
In Excel, find the Font menu in the upper menus of Excel menu bars. From the menu you select the appropriate font, in this case "gdt_____.ttf"
You will have to get used to remembering Key codes to use the font.
Such as, example, pressing the following keys while holding down the "ALT" key will produce this character "".
ALT 0 2 1 6
(Spaces are for clarity only).

In the program I suggested ($50.00) you select the desired character from a menu with a simple mouse click. Installing the IMS.TTF font is the same as above.
Thanks to QC Rick for your informative Post and/or Attachment!

Re: Free GD&T font for Word and Excel

Note that if the font is just copied into the fonts folder you might have to reboot before programs will "see" it, because fonts are enumerated at boot time (which is why getting rid of some fonts can speed up the boot process if you have a lot of them). Also, you can just open Character Map and select/paste from there. In Win XP, it's Start/AllPrograms/Accessories/System Tools/Character Map. Or even simpler, Start/Run and then charmap. No $50 required.

Re: Free GD&T font for Word and Excel

Thanks Rob, I think. I have downloaded the .zip file to my desktop and then attempted to save it to C:\Windows\Fonts. However I get an error message because it is still zipped or the file format is incorrect. How do you unzip the file, doesn't XP automatically unzip. Has anyone else had this problem?
