[Issue] Can I Write Symbols on Top of Other Symbols

Postby Daron » Sat Feb 09, 2013 4:57 pm

What I would like to write is the symbol "not less than or equal to", which looks like the 'le' symbol with a slash through it. Since such a symbol cannot be written, is there any way I can just write the / symbol directly on top of the "le"?

No, sorry. See here: Bug 31460 - Cannot enter non-congurent symbol. New attribute needed?

You need to add the symbol to the Math catalogue from a font that have it (U+2270): [User Guide Draft]Inserting Symbols on Math

One of these?
U+2268 LESS-THAN BUT NOT EQUAL TO
U+2270 NEITHER LESS-THAN NOR EQUAL TO

You can also try a combining character, something like U+0337, 338:

Use a good font, such as DejaVu Sans that includes various mathematical symbols and operators, for example, ≰≱ etc.

Yes, of course you can write symbols on top of the other symbols with inserted small font text.
__ First open your open office writers.
__ Click "Insert"
__ Click "Special Characters"
Select the special symbol which you write on the top of other symbol.
Make sure that the font is selected on "Normal text" unless you are planning to use an accent from a different font.
