Additional special symbols through an escape sequence

Greetings. Accessing Google Docs through my browser, any browser. In equations mode some special symbols are available through an escape sequence and using their TeX/LaTeX name. I appreciate that; please extend it. I recommend to make it the default that any symbol that has a standard name in TeX/LaTeX is available in that manner. Immediately I would care to have the right-angled versions of the order and lattice operations: \sqsubset, \sqsubseteq, \sqcup, \sqcap, \sqsuperset, \sqsuperseteq. Even if the name is sometimes a bit of a mouthful it beats point-and-click; these symbols are not in the short menu and (this is the topic of another request) recently used symbols from the long menu are not saved across editing sessions. I would also appreciate to be able to create my own short names as backslash-escape sequences for symbols that are used often in my work and to have these abbreviations saved across editing sessions. However, to have the established TeX/LaTeX names available is, I think, more important.
