Description diaz_frederic 2009-03-22 13:35:52 UTC
In educational meetings, many mathematics teachers told us they
needed two additional symbols in formulas

First is the "widearc" symbol over two or more letters

Second is the arrow with a heel, used in  the expression
 x   |--->  f(x) 

For the moment, two temporary solutions have been found 
- creating a draw object imitating these symbols
- installing Ams TeX fonts (for one or two symbol only...)

Would it be possible to integrate those two symbols directly in OpenSymbol
font, for example in unused areas to make them directly usable in OOoMath ?
