Description Graham Perrin 2021-10-03 02:32:42 UTC
SUMMARY

I'd like to use Kate, but it lacks support for the character composition keystrokes to which I became accustomed after switching from Mac OS X to FreeBSD-based systems. 

I assume that Kate for Linux also lacks support. 

STEPS TO REPRODUCE

1. Perform these six keystrokes: 

Control-Shift-U
2
0
2
6
Space bar 

OBSERVED RESULT

2026 

~~~~^
– there's a space


EXPECTED RESULT

…

– a single character.

Hi,

have you tried the "Latex completion" plugin. Just enable it in the config and then try typing something like
```
\dots
```
