Hello, I am trying to type/enter mac modifier (keys ⌘⌥⇧ etc.) in calc.

My usual go to method of ⌥ ⌘ T doesn't produce the mac "special characters" menu.

Tried insert > special characters but couldn't find any mac modifier keys in the special characters list.

That's because most fonts do not have those characters. Libertinus Keyboard have them, but Libertinus Serif don't.

So you need to look for a font providing the symbols you need. For example Pali, a free font based on Hermann Zapf’s Palatino, have them too.

Downloaded Libertinus font via your link; all sorted. Thanks.
