There is also this site: http://detexify.kirelabs.org/classify.html .
It allows you to draw a mathematical symbol -- with your mouse -- and
it will guess how you write that in LaTeX.
As I guess the main reason for wanting to move symbols around visually
is so that you don't have to remember tons of TeX sequences, this
could be rather helpful.
