Description sdc.blanco 2020-02-03 23:14:23 UTC
1. Tools - Customize - Menus tab
2. Search:  symbol

Result:  Two Symbol commands are found

one is: uno:CharmapControl   (could not see any effect)
the other: uno:InsertSymbol  (opens the Special Character dialog box)

maybe uno:CharmapControl can be removed?
Comment 1 Maxim Monastirsky 2020-02-03 23:36:43 UTC
.uno:CharmapControl is used for the toolbar dropdown control (can be found on the Standard toolbar), and is not designed to work from a menu. So what we want here is to not show such commands in the list of available commands of the Menus tab. This is already tracked in Bug 112620.

Thanks for explanation.  Also makes me believe that there might be some hope to make differential commands between menus and toolbars (bug 130405), which is how I encountered the symbol case.
