You can use \@tfor. I provide also a better redefinition of the dot under according to your wish: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \let\d\relax \DeclareRobustCommand{\d}[1]{% \oalign{#1\cr\hidewidth\scalebox{0.5}{\textbullet}\hidewidth\cr}% } \makeatletter \newcommand{\ds}[1]{% \@tfor\next:=#1\do{\d{\next}}% } \makeatother ...
