# printing of composed unicode characters in luatex, e.g. u with small e on top

I want to print a lowercase u with a small e on top (u\868). I can insert the character into the code and see it in the browser (even here!), but the result is just a plain u. The MVW:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}

some text with an u with e char: uͤ which does not print

\end{document}


I have experimented with different fonts, but not found a solution. How can i achieve printing the unicode I can see?

• You need a font that has the glyph, for instance Libertinus Serif or EB Garamond, among the free ones. – egreg Jun 13 at 10:00

You need a font that has the glyph:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}

\setmainfont{Libertinus Serif}

\begin{document}

some text with an u with e char: uͤ which prints

\end{document}


On my machine it's in

• Thanks a lot! Works perfect! how can one find out which fonts have some character and which character are in a font? – user855443 Jun 13 at 10:34
• @user855443 That mostly depends on your operating system and the available utilities. I'm on macOS and UnicodeChecker is great for this. – egreg Jun 13 at 10:43
• @user855443 fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/0364/fontsupport.htm is useful for finding fonts. – Thérèse Jun 13 at 11:38
• Real useful - it is hard to find all the links to connect from a font to its usage in a latex file! – user855443 Jun 13 at 15:49
