Hmm, interesting question. The BZ tdf#73691 sheds no light, and I can't
remember any discussion of adding it to a menu. But it was prominently
advertised in the release notes for 5.1

The actual .uno:UnicodeNotationToggle command is available to assign in
Customization receiving default en-US name in Customization of "Toggle
Unicode Notation" and can be added to Menu, Toolbars, and Context menu. It
shows for LibreOffice globally as <Alt>+x -- Command Name and the keyboard
shortcut are localized and configured by os.

I could possibly see it assigned to the Standard toolbar, adjacent to the
Special character dialog button.
But, I'm not sure how it could be ussed from menu, and which menu -- Insert,
Format or even Tools -- would hold it. Checked, and it does _not_ appear on
any MS Office menus.

So kind of seems the enhancement of the BZ issue was fully implemented--with
no functional reason to add it to a menu just to expose the shortcut.


Thanks for the explanation.

There are other function which are useless in the menu, like i.e. CTRL+C. Most (read 'all') users will use their keyboard.

About the position of 'ToglleUnicodeNotation' in the menu (if that ever becomes an issue 😉),  the 'edit' menu is a better place, because it's not inserting something.
