    Missing Keystrokes in Mojave
    OS Mojave 10.14.5

    Much to my dismay, I find there is no longer an Option-V (in Mojave) to produce the square root symbol which I was using as a tick/check for my lists of tasks done. A bit of digging informed me I should use emoji & symbols (e&s), requiring a three-finger key press, and providing a pane of numerous symbols that will be useful - for someone - somehow - some time.

    Is there a way to put that pane of symbols more enduringly in Finder or on Desktop without having to call up the e & s pane every time? Alternatively, is there a third-party application containing the types of symbols the Mojave OS has?

    On a positive note, kudos to the MacOS engineers for producing an incredible collection of symbols.

    @Hugh:

    Option V still works in Mojave: √ √ √ √

    I'm using a US English keyboard so that might be the difference. Have you tried some other combination keystrokes?

    Thanks for the replies. It's an Apple Extended keyboard. Input source tells me it cannot identify the keyboard, which is odd, because it works with everything else. The current setting is a generic ABC. I have added Australian but it does not appear to have made any difference. Here is what Option-V produces ˇˇˇ. I should emphasise that this 'glitch' has occurred only since using Mojave on the new Mini. My MBkPro with High Sierra has Australian set as its keyboard input. I checked with the older Mini which is using El Capitan, the keyboard is set to Australian, and Option-V produces √√√.

    √√√ works on my Aussie keyboard using OAS X.14.5.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    √√√ - and now on mine! Still some quirky behaviour. Input was set to Australian in SysPrefs, but it would not activate via that pane, only through the Input (flag) symbol in the Menu Bar.
