Would be a 5 star if the majority of the special characters were listed, this add-on is missing around 80% of the special characters. I was mainly looking for the proper Roman/Arabic Numeral character, of which is an "I" but with two horizontal lines on the top and bottom. I did find that you can add custom characters, but there is no way I can add the proper Roman/Arabic Numeral character as there is no site that includes a copy & paste-able proper Roman/Arabic Numeral.

Insert Special Characters is a convenient tool for users to quickly access, search or browse for characters and insert them in their Google Sheets product. The extra convenience of size and colour modification is also a great feature. I would particularly recommend this for anyone in finance, statistics and education.

Doesn't have all the Unicode characters that Google Docs would usually offer. Also, only a 7-day free trial before it gets pricey.

I love using this for data analysis -- I can finally get the right arrows into my sheets formulas without remembering CHAR numbers!
