Symbol for Absolute Value need in the Insert Equation

Feature idea (LEVEL 2)
Margaret Colella
The math teachers that I work with are looking for a symbol to be added in the Insert Equation tools for 'absolute value'. While they know they can type abs to create the absolute value symbol, they state it would be convenient for students to have the symbol already in there as an option to click on. It's a symbol commonly used in Algebra.
