For GNOME users: Have you set up a compose key?
(If not, you should; it's fantastic. My use case is in a reply.)
@benjaminhollon I've never heard of compose keys before, but the only other language I know is German and I don't think compose keys will help me too much there
@morxemplum @benjaminhollonDo you have ä ö ü ß on your keyboard? Also maybe €.
@mattdm @benjaminhollon I have to switch to a German keyboard to get those characters usually, but I don't see how those characters could be reproducible other than maybe a few periods.
@morxemplum @mattdm äöü I was able to type with <compose> + <letter> + "
Not sure about the beta symbol.
But the combinations are customizable as someone else pointed out to me; I just haven't tested that yet.
