**General Use**
### Math Equations

You can write almost any math equation, with almost any symbol,
with ease, in NewDraw or in the draw layer of NewWrite. Using
symbols drawn and sized in NewDraw, you can later paste the
equation into the text layer of a multi-paged NewWrite document.
You might want to save your created symbols in Scrapbook for future
use and, when needed, just cut and paste the appropriate symbols
and fill in the rest.
Near the back of your user manual there is a chart of available
symbols. Another way to see all the symbols is to use the Character
Map application. You might have to use a font other than URW Roman
font. Check the URW SymbolPS font for some additional math symbols.
Since you can draw lines, arcs, angles, and re-size symbols in
Write you don't have to use Draw, but it is usually easier to set
up an equation as a graphic.

The snap to grid function is a big help.
