Summary0007425: making use of Unicode easier
Description1. It would be helpful to allow the entry of Unicode characters in the Search/Replace dialog
2. Wherever one can insert various characters, quotes, spaces, and ligatures from the Insert menu items, it would be useful to show the Unicode value, so that once you see it there, you could then just use the keyboard afterward.
3. There should be a menu item, at least in Story Editor under Edit, to select the Unicode entry, and show its shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+U).

I will have to check if there is a Metabug for rewriting of SE. if not, it would be nice to setup one.
For this issue, we could let the character palette a bit more active. So it could be an input device for whatever text field in Scribus.
