editors/abiword with deskutils/gucharmap?

graphics/xfig or graphics/gimp with some math symbol images like those

The drag-and-drop requirement is a bit limiting. If OpenOffice doesn't
meet your needs (are you sure the drawing or presentation components
won't work for you?), and you have the time, you might be better off
learning TeX and using something like editors/texmacs or print/lyx15,
which are WYSIWYG, or nearly so.
