### Topic: type unicode in zulip

#### Kenny Lau (Jul 31 2020 at 09:18):

is it ever possible to type unicodes in zulip in the same way as in vscode? i.e. \< would actually print as an angle bracket? or maybe we would need some bot akin to the TeXiT-bot on discord?

Personally, I'm using a Lean IME: https://github.com/gebner/m17n-lean

what I have in mind is a little button on each message that when clicked would convert the abbreviations in VSCode-style

#### Kenny Lau (Jul 31 2020 at 09:30):

and when clicked would revert to the backslash codes

I don't want \ to be active outside of Lean, especially in my LaTeX documents.
