I have been trying to insert a simple division symbol into a math problem. I have version, yet all I can see and get using Insert, Object, Formula is a downward facing arrow. Other operators like a multiplication sign have other symbols produced too. I have used the command box also but still get this arrow.
Is this a bug that need reporting?

Not sure I fully understand.

Do you mean you want to actually type the division symbol so it appears like this: ÷ ?

If so, on a Mac, you can press OPTION key and the '/' symbols to get ÷

On Windows, I think you hold down the ALT key and type the number 0247 before letting go of ALT.
