Is there anyway that I don't have to use the keypad on the right? My computer (or laptop, I guess) doesn't have one. Also, I cannot copy and paste the symbol because when I do, it messes up the formatting for my entire page.

To MysticBlade,

The Alt code for two arrows combined (↔) is 'Alt 29'

Hemanth 2016-02-18 06:54:01


John 2016-02-15 14:33:27

@Alejandro Ochoa G.

Hopefully that works. You will have to copy/paste as it is a unicode character, not ASCII.

Type 27FA and then hit Alt+X - or type 27FA and highlight and then hit AltX; either way, the same thing will take place. Select the arrow and paste - I did here and, pre-post, it seems to have worked..

Alejandro Ochoa G. 2016-02-10 15:38:50

In Word, you can type the following:


then pulse the Enter key, and you will get a double-headed, horizontal arrow.

But, when you copy the beautiful arrow and try to paste it in some web platform or browser, this happens:

To Amad

If you use an underlined "k" and format it as superscript before the arrow....that might get you what you need.

Xtina 2013-08-23 22:40:04

Cool! thanks!↑

Philip D 2013-08-06 23:22:58

The more common name for the symbols is up arrow, down arrow, left arrow and right arrow - I think this is the first time I've seen the 'ward' suffix appended to them.

The suffix 'ward' most often indicates movement as in Jeff D's truck going backwards. The arrow keys on my keyboard are stationary and thankfully they are not showing any tendency to be otherwise.

Amused Reader 2013-07-09 10:21:11

Tee hee. The grammar debate was amusing. Thanks

Skyler 2013-04-21 16:51:45

Thanks "" it really works!, and quite useful :-)

I have a set of chemical reactions which are represented as "rxn[A,3B,C,K]" indicating "A+3B-->C" with rate K.
I want to write a few lines of code for converting it from the prior format to the secenond format in Microsoft word or even Latex. I want to put the rate value "K" on the top of --> (arrow) in the second format. Can you help me?

Reply: GrammarPoliceChecker 2013-03-02 20:01:19

How come you didn't correct "Jeff D", the person who commented before you? It would be incorrect grammar to say "i" instead of "I", wouldn't it? My advice: Worry about yourself.

GrammarPoliceChecker 2013-02-05 19:48:41

@GrammarPolice, if you're going to be a Grammar Police, you should probably remember that "it's" is incorrect if you're using it as a possessive

Jeff D 2012-10-29 04:44:07

Well i don't know about you all but my truck goes "backwards" when i put it in reverse.

GrammarPolice 2012-10-21 17:34:04

Adding an "s" to a word will pluralize it. As in one dog, many dogs. Upward, downward, etc. are directions. There are only uncommon examples where it is gramatically correct to pluralize those words, one example could be where you have 20 signs which say "upward". You could then say I have "twenty upwards". Otherwise, it's use, such as on this webpage, or by Faith, or "Me", is grammatically incorrect.

El Jefe 2012-10-11 11:49:15

To wrap up the "upward/upwards" / "downward/downwards" conversation:

As an adjective, there is never an 'S' at the end, however, as an adverb, either with or without the 'S' is acceptable, but in US and UK English.

π 2012-10-06 22:29:21

☻𕧠Who needs arrows? The other symbols are so fun!!!

Alice 2012-09-21 14:41:25

"Normal" English? The 's' is not grammatically correct, it doesn't have anything to do with normal or not. However, this is not a site about grammar - some people just like those things pointed out, so that their site can look more professional. That is all.

hey 2012-09-15 08:28:27

but how i can write "n" with acute

Me 2012-09-09 15:43:23

FYI, there is NO 's' on any of the directional words, such as: upward, downward, rightward, leftward, or for that matter, toward, forward, etc.
