What is the general frame of thought for character coding in scribus ?
Some fonts are coded with one byte and some others on 2 bytes ?
How to know ?
Is there not a user-friendly way to unify this as a UI ?
PS : I am no MS nor Ooo user.

First inserting the symbol, than copying it, then pasting it in the replace area
(it displays as a big point) thant selecting the good font for replacement
(it keeps displaying as a big point) and i am able to replace it.
There might be a way to replace with such special char using its 2 bytes code
(but it is not very user friendly these 2 bytes codes = 4 coded character codes)
Using special symbols (like phone, enumerations or email signs)
is not easy (the insert dialog requires many actions before effect)
that is why i use >tel: or >em: text conventions instead of them
and then replace them for the whole doc.
If there was a "usefull & easy to access few character user-library"
(as there is some kind for the container objects)
that would easen the process.
This is about usability.
