    See for iinstance the stackinset command (stackengine package). – Bernard Nov 10 '19 at 19:09

You can use the tikz machinery.

enter image description here



% \node[draw,line width=2pt,circle,inner sep=2pt] (A) at (0,0) {$-$};
\node[draw,line width=2pt,circle,inner sep=2pt] (A) at (0,0) {$+$};
\draw[line width=2pt] ($(A.225)+(.5\pgflinewidth,.5\pgflinewidth)$) -- ++(-1em,-1em);

I use instead fontawesome5 package of Marcel Kruger of the June 7, 2019 (the lens grip should be different from fontawesome with the command \reflectbox to obtain the very similar image of the user @Sr. Schneider.

\faSearchPluss, \faSearchMinuss

Finally found it in the fontawesome package: \faSearchPlus and \faSearchMinus.

    No no, please. I not want the green check mark. It is correct that the green tick is Marian's, the first one you gave. Just for the honesty. – Sebastiano Nov 11 '19 at 11:51
