Indeed, it works now, and the latex style shortcuts work too.

Huge thanks for the time invested in Zim and for helping me out. Much appreciated.

    Is it possible to add more symbols to ~/.config/zim/symbols.list?

    I tried something like

    \odq    201c
    \cdq    201d

    for open double (curly) quote and close double (curly) quote but
    when I
    type \odq<space> in the document, nothing happens.
