Vulgar Fractions

Post by Patrick J » 2006-06-27 11:32:58

A very simple but useful thing I notice in Apple' Pages application is that in their "Auto-Correction" section they've included conveting vulgar fractions typed crudley like 1/2 into the very nice new with unicode version: ½

Obviously the same thing can be done with Nisus Writer Express quickfix.

Currently Nisus Writer Express comes with lots of very good ready made Quick Fix entries. Perhaps whoever puts those in might like to do the same for vulgar fractions.

With the old Nisus Writer Classic I created reasonable looking vulgar fractions with the equation editor, then put them in the glossary. These new ones with unicode are hugely superior.

An advantage of this posting is that I've been able to write "Vulgar" quite a lot.
