I would like to use several symbols in LO. I use autocorrect a lot,
like /^ would do North-East arrow, and \v South-East
arrow. Unfortunately, I can only choose the "Segoe UI" font in
autocorrect "insert symbol" right-click menu, and SE arrow does not
exist in it.
There is a workaround for this. Place the required symbol in a text
(Writer) document - in an appropriate font - and select it. Now go
to Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Replace, and you will find that
the required character has already been entered in the With:
field. Continue as expected.
Also, this SE arrow shows weirdly in some fonts (I use Times New
Roman), sometime disappearing (leaving an ugly square), sometimes
shrinking. Is this a known bug ?
Not all characters exist in all fonts. If you change to a font in
which the character does not appear, there will be nothing to display.
Is there any workaround ?
Yes: use a font in which the character exists.
I trust this helps.
