# Overlaying two symbols

I use LyX, so a lot of the working is hidden from me. I want to overlay the symbols \star and \bigcircle.

How do I do this? I know it can be done, ad there is the \not, which works like that

I don't think that LyX provides some UI for that. See e.g. Overlay symbol with another for ideas how to do this using TeX code. –  Martin Scharrer May 30 '11 at 6:36
Also \not is an own symbol and not an overlay. –  Martin Scharrer May 30 '11 at 6:40
what package is providing the \start and \Bigcircle symbols? There's no mention of them in the Comprehensive LaTeX symbol list –  egreg May 30 '11 at 8:13
sorry Typos. I meant \star and \bigcircle –  Oxinabox May 30 '11 at 8:30

\newcommand{\circledstar}{\text{\textcircled{$\star$}}}
