Surely this can happen only if you already have the character in your
document? In that case it is a simple matter to copy it and paste it
anywhere else you want it. If you need it often, you might consider
typing a code for it and then using Find & Replace to substitute the
required character. In any case, scrolling through the Special
Characters chart can be inefficient, as the character you require may
exist only in some fonts.
Ex. [solid right-arrow symbol]
It is usually fairy easy to discover Unicode code numbers by a simple
web search. Searching for "right triangle unicode" throws up amongst
the first few results:
o Unicode Character 'BLACK RIGHT-POINTING TRIANGLE' (U+25B6)
o Unicode Character 'BLACK RIGHT-POINTING SMALL TRIANGLE' (U+25B8)
o Geometric Shapes - HTML Unicode UTF-8
o Geometric Shapes - Wikipedia
Scrolling down to 25B6 in Special Characters is then a simple matter
- and I can see at a glance that it is missing from the first font I try.
I trust this helps.
