Hi Jean

I clicked the button Reset in de Toolbars tab of the Customize dialog (Tools > Customize), and indeed now the button Insert Special Characters has a drop-down palette of Favourites. So this one is the default.
Thanks for the reseach.

My Win10 setup showed the drop-down palette of Favourites from the
Special Characters icon, but my Linux setup didn't. So I dug around a
bit more and I have found the answer to the mystery. Look in the
"Visible buttons" list for the standard toolbar; you should see TWO
icons for Special Character (called Symbols on the list of visible
buttons), but usually only one will be visible on the toolbar. One
goes directly to the dialog; the other drops down the Favorites
palette. I don't know which is the default.

The discussion in the chapter needs to mention this briefly, or other
readers will be confused too.

Shavrani updated, I reviewed, and left it for S to deal with what needed to be done in response to my comments. I didn’t think it was ready for someone else to review. Hoping to hear from S about the status of the file.

Tomorrow I’ll look on my Windows 10 test machine to see what’s there on the Special Characters icon. S was using W10, and I see the same on my Mac. I’ll look on my Linux test machine too. This is a mystery!

Hi Jean

I thought Shravani had updated the chapter and you did the first review.
So I thought to do the second review.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

I am using Windows 10 and LibreOffice
