    what command to have a keyboard shortcut writing text ?

    Hello,

    I'd like to create a keyboard shortcut that types ⇒ (for instance in LibreOffice) when I press Shift + Control + >
    I have found where I can do that (Settings → keyboard shortcuts → + at the bottom) but I don't know what I can write in "Command" as it must be something executable by the terminal.

    Some help would be nice, thank you !

    There's no need for a special keyboard shortcut to write ⇒. You can type that one using the compose key. Configure the compose key (somewhere in your keyboard settings), then type compose, =, > to type ⇒. It works for a lot of symbols and accented letters.

    Ok thanks. That works great with that symbol but for weirder symbols like ⇐ it doesn't work (here I tried Control key + < + =, but this is the result : ≤ ), so my question remains.
