Line AB example

Problem description: with LibreOffice math you can type many mathematical symbols, but you can't create any formula containing the representation of 'the line that goes through points A and B', which is very common in basic geometry.
The more similar symbol you can find is obtained with command 'widevec{}', which produces a scalable vector arrow that is positioned over the letters you put inside the brackets.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Math.
2. Search for a command that you can use to represent 'the line that goes through points A and B'. 
3. You'll find nothing.

Current behavior: Math lacks of a geometric line symbol. 

Expected behavior: a command that enables the user to produce something similar to the attached image.

Operating System: All
Version: release

Thanks for reporting!

I can confirm this using Mac OSX 10.8.4 with LibreOffice RC.

Kind regards,

Hello. I'm not sure of knowing of wich symbol are you speaking about. Could you tell me it's unicode value?
