How To replace Rs. with the new Rupee Symbol in Microsoft Word

Published On :

As I had mentioned in this post (Foradian Technologies reveals the 2.0 version of Rupee Foradian) that I would be posting an HowTo post soon enough on DailyBlogging.

So today I will show you how to replace the normal Rs. which is normally used to show that the amount is in INR (Indian Rupee) with the new Rupee Symbol.

It’s a pretty basic tutorial so you don’t need any advanced knowledge of Microsoft Word or Office.

  4. Make sure there is a Grave Ascent Symbol (`) in the With box
  5. In the Replace box type Rs.

    Nice tutorial but there is a problem with Rupee Foradian Font. Whenever we need to insert new rupee symbol we have to choose Rupee Foradain Font.

    So there is a nice and handy solution for it from my side.
    1. Click on Insert—symbol->more symbol
    2. Now symbol Font and in the fonts search for Rupee Fordian Font
    3. In Subset choose Basic Latin
    4. In the preview of symbols choose the rupee ` Symbol and click on Shortcut keys
    5. In the shortcut keys assign any shortcut keys for the rupee ` symbol
    Now when ever you want to insert the rupee symbol ` you need not to select Rupee foradian Font. Just press the assigned keys

    This is a great information and every official documents should contain the symbol instead of Rs and therefore it is much useful. Thanks for sharing the information.

    I purchased a HCL desktop (i5 Processor) recently. The keyboard contains a specific keys containing rupees symbol . I want to know how to use it. Is it possible to print the symbol without downloading the concern font for rupee.

      Well if your Keyboard has the Rupee Symbol then you can use it locally. But since the Rupee Symbol is under universal web approval it will take some time. So if you are using it in Word then I don’t think you need to.

        If you highlight the Rupee symbol before carrying out the Auto correct process as explained by Mani, then even if you do not choose Rupee Foradian font, when you type Rs. you will get the official rupee symbol. Works like a dream. Saves the hassle of choosing RF font every where the symbol needs to be inserted. Only problem though the use who does not have RF font, we see only the accent mark. So let’s popularize the RF font amongst friends and colleagues
