A Unicode symbol.

Typst defines common symbols so that they can easily be written with standard keyboards. The symbols are defined in modules, from which they can be accessed using field access notation:

Moreover, you can define custom symbols with the symbol function.

#sym.arrow.r \
#sym.gt.eq.not \
$gt.eq.not$ \

Many symbols have different variants, which can be selected by appending the modifiers with dot notation. The order of the modifiers is not relevant. Visit the documentation pages of the symbol modules and click on a symbol to see its available variants.

$arrow.l$ \
$arrow.r$ \
