    Macro to open dialogue box with specific option selected

    In MS Word, I want to create a keyboard shortcut to open the "Insert Symbol" dialogue box with the Symbol font selected in the Font field.

    I know how to create a keyboard shortcut to run a macro, and I have a macro with the command "Application.Dialogs(wdDialogInsertSymbol).Show", which opens the dialogue box.

    However, normally when this dialogue box is opened, it has the last used font selected in the Font field. Is there a way to open this dialogue box with a specific font ("Symbol") selected in the Font field?

    (A hack like 'SendKeys "%fSymb{DOWN}{ENTER}' will get the job done, but I am wondering whether there is a parameter that can set the Font field directly.)
