How do I make this sign in Write?
I have looked through Special Charactors but can't find it.

Thanks, but that is not the correct sign for Infinity.
The correct sign is basically a figure 8 on its side.

It's in the subset Mathematical operators (never mind that it's not an operator), U 221E.

If your problem has been solved, please edit the first post in this thread and add [Solved] to the title bar.

It's the code in the Unicode system. On some systems it's not easy to insert Unicode characters by typing the code. You can search the forum for it: try thisl; http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=98633&highlight=unicode

And you forgot to mark this as solved. Wink
