How to Build Fractions in Word 2013

The AutoCorrect feature in Word 2013 can build common fractions for you. Actually, it doesn't build them as much as it pulls them from a set of existing fraction "characters." Sadly, Word has only a few of these fraction characters. When you need your own, specific fraction, such as 3/64, you can create it this way:

  1. Press Ctrl+Shift+= (the equal sign).

    This keyboard is the shortcut for the superscript command. This will allow you to type your numerator.

  2. Type the numerator — the top part of the fraction.

    For example, type 3 for 3⁄64.

  3. Press Ctrl+Shift+= again.

    This turns off the superscript. Now you can move on to the next part of your fraction.

  4. Type the slash mark (/).

    This gives you the division bar of your fraction.

  5. Press Ctrl+=.

    This will turn on the subscripting for the denominator.

  6. Type the denominator — the bottom part of the fraction.

    For example, type 64 for 3/64.

  7. Press Ctrl+= to turn off subscripting.

    You now have a completed fraction and you didn’t have to write it in.
