Right now, to insert symbols that are not defined for Math you have two options, either defining a new symbol or copy past it from Writer. The first option is not portable (if you carry the file to other computer, the symbol get lost) and it is not really necessary when you need to insert that symbol every now and then. The second option can be a nuisance is you forgot to copy the symbol before accessing the Math object.
It would be a good enhancement for Math the addition of an "insert symbol" menu (the same we already have on Writer) to insert occasional symbols.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:
more detail on this bulk operation: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/RFC-Operation-Spamzilla-tp3607474p3607474.html
The feature requested is not implemented on 3.5 beta2 yet.
I understood the problem.
How can I achieve this?
Maybe in the menu File, create a new menu entry "Insert symbol", as exists in Writer?
What do you think?
In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.
Thank you and apologies for the noise
Please read this message in its entirety before responding.
Your bug was confirmed at least 1 year ago and has not had any activity on it for over a year. Your bug is still set to NEW which means that it is open and confirmed. It would be nice to have the bug confirmed on a newer version than the version reported in the original report to know that the bug is still present -- sometimes a bug is inadvertently fixed over time and just never closed.
If you have time please do the following:
1) Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (preferably 4.2 or newer).
2) If it is present please leave a comment telling us what version of LibreOffice and your operating system.
3) If it is NOT present please set the bug to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment telling us your version and Operating System
Please DO NOT
1) Update the version field
2) Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
3) Set the bug to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

The <Alt>+X toggle for Unicode codepoint to glyph implemented for bug 73691 makes it trivial to add persistent symbols to results the Math Formula editor.
Still, having access from the Toolbar for the Special Symbol dialog would be convenient UI. Can the .uno:InsertSymbol command even open in Math module?
Hey guys, I think i can do this one!
