Using MS Word (ancient edition) I'd like to insert a single symbol (rather than some combination) meaning "does not imply".

So like ==/==> or --/--> maybe but neater. Strikethough is no help as this adds a horizontal line.

I suppose I could invent a graphic bit that's not ideal.

You can insert a "not equal" sign by doing the following:

Change font to Symbol
Scroll down to the "not equal" symbol (character code 185)
Insert

Sorry, I can't seem to include an example on this site.

Depends what version of Word is used,

e.g. insert an Object (Equation) in Office 2003

Hi resistanceisuseless. Thanks for your feedback, but I'm actually after an arrow with a line though it (as opposed to an equals sign). Something like ===/===> that

Alan- Equation Editor seemed a good idea, but on my old version of Word I can't find the desired symbol there either. Out of interest though - do you see the required symbol?

The thing I'm after is shown here: it seems latex users refer to it as "\centernot\implies".

Aha! Try font CAMBRIA MATH character code 21CF or 219B.

There's an example of it in this Wiki entry ..

In Windows 7 you could try Private Character Editor.

Both very useful answers - thanks!

(Never before heard of "Private Character Editor", looks interesting).}
