I was wondering if this was the place to request a feature. I was
thinking the "Special Character" section is very cluttered. My feature
request is a setting that would narrow down special characters to ones
that are used in specific fields such as "Engineering" or "Physics".
Something along those lines that could help people become more efficient
using Libreoffice. I am constantly using special characters such as the
ohms (uppercase omega) symbol for resistance, particularly when I use
Libreoffice to generate tests.
I do not like the idea to remove characters or group them in another
way. The Unicode groups are well defined and easy to handle.
But I would like the idea of a user defined, "favorite characters"
list or similar, or even more then one, each for a special topic.
For your problem I think of this methods:
* Write an Autotext or a document, which contains all your favorite
characters. Open it beside your actual text and use copy&paste to
insert the characters.
* Use your OS to insert the character by typing the number; you need a
list of numbers beside your keyboard.
The first suggestion is almost what you can do in WordPerfect. In WP,
you can type ctrl-w and a package of 10 windows opens, each with about
characters. Then you can hi-lite one and paste it. You probably only
need one "window" so the proposed solution looks very reasonable.
