Many unicode characters used by the symbolic package do display correctly, in both the terminal and the GUI command window. It seems that the "combining diacritical marks" group of characters does not render in the GUI command window. So any variables that have an accent, bar, dot, circumflex, etc, are not rendered correctly in the GUI command window.

It's possible that this missing set of characters has been addressed in a later version of the qterminal code than the one Octave has embedded.

@mmuetzel I can confirm this is an issue in 5.2 too.

Octave 4.2.2 is old and no longer supported.
Can you confirm that this is still an issue with Octave 5.2 or the current stable branch which will become Octave 6?

If I run the following 3 instructions in the octave gui terminal

pkg load symbolic
syms x, xdot
x + xdot

it will confusingly display

xdot = (sym) x + x

I would expect (like with "sympref display ascii")

ans = (sym) x + xdot

or alternatively (like in octave-cli)

ans = (sym) x + ẋ
