Just a quick request: I do a lot of math on Libre Office using Laplace Transforms using the symbol ℒ (U +2112) and would like to request for it's inclusion in the Formula Editor.
Though I can just use a character map program to grab it and then paste it into Libre Office, which I currently do, I figured it would be easier if it was already in the Catalogue or elements menu. Also considering that it's a common symbol in many maths and sciences, it would make sense for its inclusion.
Also note that it seems to look nicer with a sans-like font (eg. in DejaVu Sans it looks prefect) if that matters at all.
Certainly seems reasonable, if a little niche.
Would it be better to just provide easy access to the character map in the formula editor?
I agree that adding the laplace symbol would be useful. This is more relavant to people who are working with differential equations... I think if there is a dedicated symbol, that "%LAPLACE" would suffice and give no guesswork as to what this is supposed to be. This is similar to how the Pi symbol and others are done.
I think there is a way to achieve this using the Catalogue button in the Formula Editor. Then add the Ux2112 symbol (Laplacian like) and use Laplace as Symbol value. Then when you write %Laplace in the formula editor...
Works for me, the only trouble is that no appears like Deja Vu sans, but it's something.
Wait a moment, when you define the symbol name you also can define the symbol font, so... that's it ;)
Please also add the Fourier Transform symbol also.
