Entering Unicode characters on Linux broken

Issue #13167 open
Sean Farley created an issue

Entering any arbitrary Unicode character on Linux is accomplished via pressing Ctrl+U (Ctrl+Shift+u), which enters unicode input mode. You can then enter the hex representation of the unicode codepoint, and press enter to insert the chosen unicode character. Eg. pressing Ctrl+U, entering 2014', and pressing enter inserts an em-dash (—'). On most editors this works well (including this feedback text box), but when creating a snippet with markdown formatting (I did not test if this happens with plaintext or if it's something to do with the code formatting), it actually inserts the "Enter" keypress and returns a line before entering the character, which is unexpected behavior.
