LaTeX Questions Answered

56 Can I use characters from the Pressbooks special character bank in LaTeX commands?

Last update: Jul 13/21

No: if special characters are taken from the special character bank and used in a LaTeX command, the command won’t work. Instead, you must use an appropriate LaTeX command to insert the character. See What kind of symbols can I write using LaTeX? for links to resources that detail how to create many characters in LaTeX.
