LibreOffice 24.8 Help

Use this dialog to determine the spacing between formula elements. The spacing is specified as a percentage in relation to the base size defined under Format - Font Size.

Use the Category button to determine the formula element for which you would like to specify the spacing. The appearance of the dialog depends on the selected category. A preview window shows you which spacing is modified through the respective boxes.

This button allows you to select the category for which you would like to change the spacing.

Defines the spacing between variables and operators, between lines, and between root signs and radicals.

Defines the spacing between variables and operators.

Determines the spacing between lines.

Determines the spacing between the root sign and radicals.

Defines the spacing for superscript and subscript indexes.

Determines the spacing for superscript indexes.

Determines the spacing for subscript indexes.

Defines the spacing between the fraction bar and the numerator or denominator.

Determines the spacing between the fraction bar and the numerator.

Determines the spacing between the fraction bar and the denominator.

Defines the excess length and line weight of the fraction bar.

Determines the excess length of the fraction line.

Determines the weight of the fraction line.

Defines the spacing between the sum symbol and the limit conditions.

Determines the spacing between the sum symbol and the upper limit.

Determines the spacing between the sum symbol and the lower limit.

Defines the spacing between brackets and the content.

Determines the vertical distance between the upper edge of the contents and the upper end of the brackets.

Determines the horizontal distance between the contents and the upper end of the brackets.

Scales all types of brackets. If you then enter ( a over b) in the Commands window, the brackets will surround the whole height of the argument. You normally achieve this effect by entering left ( a over b right ).

Adjusts the percentage excess size. At 0 percent the brackets are set so that they surround the argument at the same height. The higher the entered value is, the larger the vertical gap between the contents of the brackets and the external border of the brackets. The field can only be used in combination with Scale all brackets.

Defines the relative spacing for the elements in a matrix.

Determines the spacing between matrix elements in a row.

Determines the spacing between matrix elements in a column.

Defines the spacing of symbols in relation to variables

Defines the height of the symbols in relation to the baseline.

Determines the minimum distance between a symbol and variable.

Defines the spacing between operators and variables or numbers.

Determines the height from the variable to the operator's upper edge.

Determines the horizontal distance between operators and variables.

Adds a border to your formula. This option is particularly useful if you want to integrate the formula into a text file in LibreOffice Writer. When making settings, be sure that you do not use 0 as a size, since this creates viewing problems for text that surrounds the insertion point.

The left border is positioned between the formula and background.

The right border is positioned between the formula and background.

The top border is positioned between the formula and background.

The bottom border is positioned between the formula and background.
