Getting symbols in atom


#1

so this is probably a user error, but I am trying to use symbols in atom such as sigma and pi for classes. when I try to insert them though I go to edit > special characters, but the special characters tab is not available in the edit list. Do I need a plug in for it or is that a standard function in atom?

Atom doesn’t have a special characters feature by default. There’s the character-table package, if that fits your needs.

Thanks. That helps a lot for my purposes.
