Thanks for reply, alt+X is exactly what i need. The font in question (liberation sans/serif) as i
say *does* have the characters but i still cant seem to get them in the special chars dialog.

Type U+0161 and then press Alt+X, for example.
Alt+X is a toggle. You
can use it also to
look, which code a character has.
Insert special char doesnt seem to be able to
find the chars i want, but
not doing something right.
The special character dialog works, but you
need to know which font has
a glyph for the
character. Otherwise the character will not be shown in
the selection pane.
a workaround using calc; i can enter the hex codes as text
1) and (row 2) use a formula
=UNICHAR(HEX2DEC(A1)) filled acrosd
adjacent column and finally copy row 2 and
paste as unformatted text
into writer. This
works but is rather longwinded to say the least. It
does show that its not a problem with the font
or with writer's ability
to display the
required chars; its just that i'd like a way to enter
them directly into the writer documext.
> The chars in question were hex A723, A725,
1E25, 1E2B, 1E96, 0161 (this one i *could* use insert
special char), 1E6F, 1E0F.
Have you looked, whether Ubuntu has a direct
input method? On Windows it
is possible to
use the numpad for direct input, although I prefer the
U+hexnumber method of LibreOffice.
