Yes, and solution to manage this is NOT to paste the glyph coming
from some other publication where it has been copied,
but to insert it from the current font using the "insert > glyph..."
menu command and selecting the glyph amongst those proposed...
if it is there !
If it does not appear there, which is currently probably the case,
you have to change the font untill you find one with it.

Some font are very rich in lots of characters,
some other are very poor.

For this same reason, all different spaces (thin, non breaking, etc)
dont allways appear active in the Insert > Spaces menu command.
It's a font choice crucial element.
