I want to include some special Unicode string to my overleaf report. In particular the Straightness ⏤ (U+23E4), Cylindricity ⌭ (U+232D), Symmetry ⌯ (U+232F), and Electrical Arrow ⌁ (U+2301). However, it seems that these symbols are not supported by the default setting of overleaf.

I have tried many solutions suggested in the forum, but they are not applicable (or to my very limited knowledge about latex) for my case. I have tried to compile my document with Pdflatex, LuaLatex and XeLatex compilers, but I haven't achieved the goal.

Could you help me to include them into a document (scrbook) on overleaf? An alternative solution (with TikZit drawing) would also be fine. Thank you.

If you compile with lualatex or xelatex you can directly use the symbols as long as your font has these symbols.

One example which works on overleaf (https://www.overleaf.com/read/wqppmhhqdndf#bc6bf0):

% !TeX TS-program = lualatex

\newfontfamily{\foo}{STIX Two Math Regular}


Straightness {\foo ⏤} (U+23E4)

Cylindricity {\foo ⌭} (U+232D)

Symmetry {\foo ⌯} (U+232F)

Electrical Arrow {\foo ⌁} (U+2301)
