If I enter a formula which has only one character, such as the negation, after the character a brown upside-down question mark will appear. In the text I am writing, I need to have formulas with only one character, and I want to get rid of the question mark. How do I do it?

I don't want to use a font instead, because I haven't found a font that looks exactly similar to the characters that OOo uses in the formulas. But if such a font exists, I would of course like to know.

I use spaces to hide that interrogation mark. That way, the space is the character the program is waiting for, and you obtain your character without the interrogation mark.

Example
`=` is shown as =, and not as ?=?

I hope this helps

Putting spaces either side of the symbol would upset the spacing in the Writer document.

A better way would be to put an empty pair of braces where it is expecting a character, for example
Code:
{} = {}


This would produce just the symbol, without any extra spaces round it.
