    The biggest difficulty I have with vim is that it's difficult to enter special characters, like the degree sign or Greek characters. When I need to do that, I have to open Libre Office, Insert Special Character, then copy-paste it into vim.

    Vim is not that difficult to insert special characters at all. You can use the digraphs system [sourceforge.net], combining characters [sourceforge.net], or do it by value [sourceforge.net]. If it gets to the point that you have to open the document in a completely different editor, you might as well just look up the value in the index to the code charts and insert it by value in vim.
