I'm running LyX v2.06 on Linux Mint 16. In other applications I can enter a unicode character using ctrl-shift-u then the code point. However, I'm unable to do this in LyX, even if I explicitly bind 'unicode-input' to ctrl-shift-u in the preferences (results in '\bind "C-S-u" "unicode-insert"' being added to .lyx/bind/user.bind).
Anyone got any ideas why this isn't working? I know I can enter unicode using alt-x then typing 'unicode-input <<codepoint>>' in the input box that appears at the bottom of the main window but this is rather cumbersome. Regards, Will
