Insert symbols in new editor

Hi all,

the new editor does not provide symbols (e.g. greek letters) anymore. Instead it is recommended to use the operating system symbols. (see https://support.atlassian.com/confluence-cloud/docs/use-symbols-emojis-and-special-characters/)

Basically, this works, i.e. I can generate symbols in MS Word and copy them to the editor, but this is very inconvenient. Does anyone have a smart solution to avoid this copy-paste-workaround?

Hi @Richard Herzog ,

There's no need to generate the symbols in MS Word and copy them to the editor -- you can generate them while you're working on a Confluence page, using your native operating system functionality. 

macOS:

Type Control-Command-Space to pull up the Character Viewer. You can double-click the special character you want to use (such as this ellipsis …) Here's more from Apple on the Character Viewer.

Windows 10:

I hope this helps! Best wishes, Sharon

Another hidden windows feature :) Thanks for the info!

And if you want to ask for them back, please vote on the Jira ticket about it here:
