Reply to: Insert Symbol Menu Item Doesn’t WorkApril 15, 2015 at 11:09 pm
The menu item for Insert > Symbols was broken when the menus and toolbars were revamped for version 8 (quite a few parts of the GUI were reimplemented).
The same changes broke the Insert > Special Characters menu item.
These issues were corrected for version 9 (and still work as they should with version 10).
In version 8 you will need to right click on the toolbar area and select the Symbols toolbar to open it.
