An alternate question...can anyone using the symbolic package correctly see then entire sqrt (radical) symbol from:

If "yes", which version of octave (and what operating system or distribution are  you using) and which font is used in your terminal window was used? I suppose a "no" answer with that same information would be useful. I'm wondering if there might be someone this works for, and if it does, what might be in common or different than my version.

I am running GNU Octave, version 4.0.0 on Ubuntu 16.04.

Here is what my command window looks like if I follow from above (substituting symx to syms :-) ) and copying and pasting into the email body.

>> pkg load symbolic
>> symx x
error: 'symx' undefined near line 1 column 1

This is different that what my command window actually looks like. I attached a screen shot of what that looks like and you can see that the radical symbol only shows the horizontal portion and not the complete symbol. I am not sure why it shows up differently from a copy and paste.
