Insert special character


I would like to insert a special character in the current open file.
i have found an old support request at Unable to insert special character via the Edit menu
but i have no menu entry ’ Special Characters…'
Is this a MAC OS thing? or is the feature gone in current versions (linux atom 1.20.0)?

the only package that i found that does similar thing is character-table
but its not so easy as a grid-map to pick from…

are there other options to do this?

sunny greetings stefan


I know you’re asking about an in-Atom solution, but there’s an Electron app called Zazu which is an app launcher (summoned with alt-space), and one of its plugins allows you to search special characters (not emoji, unfortunately).
