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.
There are some fonts that are filled with arrows and not letters. One
of the best I use is called "arrowfont.ttf", since it is only the same
type of arrow but pointing in most every direction you might need an
arrow to point towards. There are others though.
Also, if you have a good Unicode font, there are sections that have
various arrow "styled" glyphs.
Here are the "section" titles and their glyph ranges in the Unicode
Miscellaneous Symbols and Arrows
