I would like to add the (Matrix) "red pill" glyph into text that I am writing. To make it even more difficult and painful, my document originates in pandoc and becomes beamer, powerpoint, and slidy.
Usually, for a red pill in latex, I would just create a tiny png file that contains a pill image, bind it to a macro, use it repeatedly, and call it a day. Unfortunately, powerpoint does not seem to support inline graphics (only display graphics; can you believe that???), so I need to use a pill glyph.
My confusion starts pretty early now. My macos terminal (and textedit) display the same looking unicode pill no matter what font I select in my terminal. It is pulling a pill (which I don't like much either because of its dual color on macos, but at least it looks like a pill!) from somewhere---beats me from where. I am scrounging around the fontbook app to see if I can find some place for the emoji unicodes like the pill, but they don't seem to be there.
OK, but these are not latex questions. When I try to run the resulting beamer source through lualatex, the log informs me
Missing character: There is no 💊 (U+1F48A) in font Andika:mode=node;script=latn;language=dflt;+tlig;!
Missing character: There is no 💊 (U+1F48A) in font Ubuntu:mode=node;script=l
either I need to learn how to instruct beamer to switch briefly to a font that does contain a pill glyph when it sees an U+1F48A request, but I have no clue even how to interrogate my installed fonts which ones of them contain the U+1F48A glyph;
or, better, I need to learn how to take the Ubuntu font, insert a glyph that looks like pill surreptitiously, and save it.
(If I could learn how to do the latter, I presume I could use the font in all output formats, including powerpoint and wouldn't have to rely on the macos-type U+1F48A looking double-color pill, though I am not sure how this would look on other operating systems.)
Is it easy or hard to take the ubuntu font and add a pill shape into a slot (ideally, the right slot of U+1F48A) where I can ask LuaLaTeX to use it, too? Are there programs with tutorials that make this easy? I don't need high-quality; just a basic pill.
Advice greatly appreciated.
