       just type in character map, and your machine's will pop up -
           or you can go on-line, search for character map and find many
for many different fonts.

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] How do I insert a thin space in Libre in
To: Johan de Smidt <>

Hi :)
These guides might be more useful in general
If you go to
Tools - Customise
then you can reconfigure one of the keyboard combinations to be pretty much
anything you want.  I'd suggest seeing what Ctrl space or Alt space or even
shift&space do at the moment and consider changing one of those to be a
thin space.

If you are serious about doing Desktop Publishing then a word-processor is
not quite right for the task.  Writer is better than most but it might be
worth considering Scribus or something else designed to be a proper DTP.
Scribus is in the same eco-system as LibreOffice/OpenOffice and can use one
(or several) of the output-files that LibreOffice can save in.

I'm not sure what the U stands for nor how to get such coding into a
document.  Hopefully someone else might help with that later.

Regards from
tom :)

What is the keyboard shortcut for inserting a thin space in Windows?
Your website help isn't much help. Eventually found your suggestion, using
Google, to use U+2009.
What does "U" stand for? The usual keys don't work.

Kind regards
