Dear Thomas,

OOPS! My bad. I could not find the character you want in the
"" list.

However, I did find 2 versions of the character (one with a short bar
the other with a long bar) in the "Character Map" program. You'll find
them in the "STIXSizeOneSym" font.

Good afternoon
I have to enter into a technical text a capital "M" with a short bar
on top of it.
Some sort of mathematical expression indicating a vector.

I know there is something like "composing characters", but I cannot
get it right.
All I ever get is a diacritical mark either left or right from the M.
I would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction.

While googling about this, I also found some talk a "autocorrect
options" using : :
Yet, I cannot make this work either.
I suppose, there is a trick for this one too.

Thank you

Udvarius, as you've discovered, most fonts do not support creating an « M»
via a compose key ; generally speaking it's easier to use such a key to
place a bar over a vowel than a consonant. But there's no need for the OP
to restrict himnself to a certain font ; rather than using the compose key, *in
LibreOffice* one can use the «bar over» button to produce such characters,
as per the instructions in my first reply above to the OP. Moreover, one
can easily copy such a character and paste it into, e g, an epost message ;
that is how I am able to write «M» in this reply....
