That's interesting. If I try every possible combination of this method

Added for the 5.1.0 release. It works with all OS, see tdf#73691
<https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73691> , with some
adjustments for locale.
Just verified the <alt>+x functions as intended on Windows 7 sp1 (a Right
Alt key, will end up as AltGr on some keyboard mappings for some locals, but
the l-Alt should always work).
Try with a reset user profile.

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?
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.
