I'm glad you mentioned this, because I think some variation on this 
would be useful. I find that keyboard shortcuts for characters don't 
work in Story Editor (in the past at least).
Having the ability to perhaps have a series of characters, like 
"220+230+137" might be useful in various situations.

One of the reasons I still use Wordperfect as a word processor in 
Windows is that it has the ability to perform macros (Word had some 
incarnation of its own that I have a hard time figuring out) -- a 
sequence of operations that might be keyboard entry, might be operations 
-- I guess what we might consider from Scribus's perspective to be 
miniscripts. Is there a way of doing that?
