(https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/6.0 refer to thus bug, but there's little substance)
What I wanted to suggest for the new favourite characters is:
Instead of letting the user add quite a lot of favourite characters, let the user define sets of favourite charcaters for the following reasons: The special characters needed depend on the context (e.g. symbols for mathematical formulas, bullets for lists, foreign language characters, etc.) most of the time.
Also make sure that the user can see metadata of the favorite character selected (e.g. hovering displays some info bubble), as many characters may look very similar (consider the different types of dashes Unicode offers)
