Hi Urmas,

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.

Unicode groups are non-intuitive and mostly disjointed. Characters like
arrows are impossible to find there.

The group is "Arrows". I see no difficulty to find that group. If you know the group name, you need not to scroll. When the field "subset" has the focus, type A r r and you are there.

I'm sure, you will know the group names of those characters you need, very quickly. For me it is "General punctuation" and "Mathematical Operators". For me the group names describe well, which characters are contained in that group. You only need to know, that the characters which are in ISO-8859-1, are in group "Basic Latin" and "Latin 1". So a few characters, for example ² or ×, are not in the group to which they would belong according their meaning.

If you really need a quick access to a fixed set of special characters, then make your own toolbar or menu. If you need some help, how to do it, I can sent you a template with some French characters in a toolbar, which are inserted using a macro.

Kind regards
