Added for the 5.1.0 release. It works with all OS, see  tdf#73691

Just verified the <alt>+x  functions  as intended on Windows 7 sp1  (a Right

the l-Alt should always work).

Try with a reset user profile.
Hi Stuart,

Win 7 Ult SP1 - Fully updated.
LO Version: (x64)
Build ID: 6cd4f1ef626f15116896b1d8e1398b56da0d0ee1
CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Windows 6.1; UI Render: default; Layout

Logitech K320/550 keyboard. No special mappings.

New user profile. Same lower case x result with Right Alt + x

However, for both original and new profiles _LEFT_ Alt + x works.

In other software Right Alt works as expected. Go figure?

Thanks anyway,

I am a little late in this post but. . . .

I tend to not remember the "alt" command. I use the "Insert Special Character" option. I did check out several non Unicode fonts. Many of them do not show the "Rx" symbol shaded in the character window, when I type in the hex code of "211E".

So it is helpful to have a good, full, Unicode font. I use Arial Unicode. If you know of a free Unicode font that has near Arial's number of symbols and glyphs, I would really like to know. It would be nice to have both a Serif and San-Serif versions.
