Inserting Origin symbols in a figure caption in Microsoft Word

When preparing a publication or report using Origin graphs in other applications, you may want to place an Origin legend symbol or other graph elements in your document. The videos in this blog demonstrate  two methods to insert Origin symbols and elements into the caption text in Microsoft Word.

1.  Insert symbols of scatter plot into caption in Word:
If the graph uses Origin symbols, then one can select the Symbol button and then select the Origin font. This font is pre-installed with Origin and so all of the Origin symbols will be available from the font drop-down.

2.  Insert small objects such as rectangles as in-line text into caption in Word:
If the graph involves bars/columns or shaded areas, you will need to capture a small section of the graph element and then place that image as in-line text.
