--- Comment #22 from john at curioussymbols.com ---
About changing the font for equations... perhaps in the Format-->Fonts menu
there could be an extra setting where 'Greek' symbol font and style
(bold/italic) could be selected? The strange 'iGreek' stuff could still sit
there in the background, but the font options for '%rho' etc would then become
sane and user-accessible. The default fonts would sit as settings in the local
LibreOffice install, but any new formula would remember its particular font
settings and font sizes so that the formula would stay the same if edited by
another user on another machine...

I checked MS Eq Ed 3 -- that's how they used to do it too

Another thing -- why are the Greek symbols even in the Symbol Catalog? Surely
we already know where they live...? I think that this Symbol Catalog was a Big
Stick that was used to address the Greek symbol thing, but it's overkill and
not elegant.
