Why do the mu and micro symbols appear as alpha or infinity symbols when I view my manuscript PDF Proof file?

  • Verify that the Greek characters in your Word document were created using Symbol font.

     
  • Set 'Automatically update styles on open' to "off". To set styles to "off' Go to Tools>Templates>Add-ins and uncheck the box and save the document.

     
  • If the problem still exists, the issue may be with your version of Adobe Acrobat Reader, which should be version 7 or later. You can download the latest version from Adobe. After installing, re-open your manuscript PDF proof. Your symbols should now display properly.

     
  • If you continue to experience problems contact the ACS Customer Services and Information at support@services.acs.org
