I would like to replace all occurances of a text with a mathematical symbol. However I have no idea of how to get the symbol into the "Replace With" text-field. Surely it must be possible to do this?

Well, that doesn't seem to work since I can't choose any other font than MS Sans Serif. I would like to be able to insert Unicode characters from the Lucinda Sans Unicode font.

You could try a work-around like the following:

1. Insert special character using Insert > Special Character
2. Select and copy (ctrl-c) special character
3. Paste (ctrl-v) special character into 'replace with' input box
4. Change font of 'replace with' text as appropriate

I've done this before with special characters and it works fine.
