Description gamahucheur 2005-04-03 23:51:46 UTC
I would particularly like the relational symbol U+227B (and others have writen 
of their desire for it); but, in any event, it would be good to have access to 
the full set of Unicode math characters.
Comment 1 thomas.lange 2005-04-04 08:29:01 UTC
TL: request for enhancement
Comment 2 gamahucheur 2006-10-30 09:50:19 UTC
It cshould be possible to effect this enhancement by introducing or extending an
escape feature.  For example, U+227B might be entered as "%U+227B%".

Reassigned back to requirements. This is the correct owner for RFE's.

This is a very user-interface specific, and users would want names the same
 names as their previous editor of choice. 

Suggest predefined symbols in the catalog for all characters found in
1) unicode
2) mathml
3) latex

In fixing this issue the ability to paste unicode characters into the formula
editor must not be lost.
Comment 5 gamahucheur 2007-07-27 19:33:14 UTC
Allowing characters to be entered with Unicode escapes would largely resolve the
concern express in FAQ question 19:
<URL:>  I am amazed at
the evident reluctance to implement this feature.
