THANK YOU! I am a typographer from way back when I was hand-setting (and pieing — the term for spilling) little pieces of metal in the forms of letters, numbers & dingbats. Special Characters is the WordPress feature I have missed most in Gutenberg, and your plugin is the first & only that makes inserting Special Characters easy and enjoyable. Look for a donation from this old type lover! ❤

Thank You! It solves a big problem in Gutenberg, which misses this function!

Thank you for this great plugin! WHY special characters are STILL absent from the Gutenberg WordPress editor -- though it has been requested numerous times -- is quite the annoyance. This plugin is perfect! Thanks again!

This is perfect for me. Thanks for developing it!If there was an option to move it to the main toolbar without the need to use the dropdown, it would be a six-star product

This functionality has been missed and was surprised that it was omitted from Gutenberg. But, these folks did a great job. I loaded it to two sites and then edited posts adding special characters easily. Martin's suggestions about the location of the icon and automatically sorting by most used is on target. I join him in asking for those improvements. Mostly, I want to say thank you!!!

This plugin adds a much needed functionality to the Gutenberg editor, and it works fine. To make it perfect for me it should be placed directly in the toolbar (not in a toolbar dropdown) and have a "last used" palette.
