Hi Wendell,

The Character Map dialog is not a modal dialog so you can leave it 
opened and edit in the editor at the same time. But it also cannot be 
docked on the side as a view could, we'll see if we can remove this 
limitation in a future version.

Filtering by Unicode block is an interesting idea. I guess your clients 
would only be interested in the Hebrew symbols, right?
I added this as a feature request, in the meantime your clients can 
enter "hebrew" in the search field and in the "Details" tab they should 
see all characters which have the word "Hebrew" in their description.

We also have API which would allow building a plugin which could 
contribute a custom view which could contain those favorite characters.
