Description akio 2003-02-02 21:02:23 UTC
Punctuation marks such as the colon (:) or the semicolon (;) should not be printed in italics. This issue especially applies to the definition symbol (:=).

After talking with some others it seems to be a good idea to introduce a user selectable punctuation. Currently the same font as for variables is used but the user may find it convenient to use a different one especially maybe the same as for text. Since this requires an UI change the target will be OO 2.0.

Text above should have been: ...it seems to be a good idea to introduce a user selectable punctuation font. ...
Comment 5 bettina.haberer 2003-10-20 13:09:01 UTC
Yes, we can implement a solution together with the rework of the font-dialog.

Adding to the list of affected punctuations/symbols - * exclamation mark, usage example, factorial * comma, usage example, coordinates Right now, as a workaround, for something as simple as (x, 3!) I have to write (x"," 3"!") That's really ugly! I'm not sure introducing "a user selectable punctuation font" is a good idea. I think OO Math internal has to be redone/reprogrammed to understand what "variables" are. Actually, in OO Math, we can open menu Format > Fonts... A dialog will pop up showing that *only* variables are in italics. But punctuations and non-letter symbols SHOULD be be considered as variables. PS: Wow, it's incredible to see that this bug has been filed on 2003 but never corrected.

Created attachment 84782 [details] Showing slash as wrongly in italics Image showing slash (division) wrongly shown as italics. But the quoting trick put in addition space which is not desirable.
Comment 10 lapsap7+ooo 2015-06-09 13:01:53 UTC
Just found another symbol which is wrongly in italics: slash (division) Try this to see (or see the attached image (attachment 84782 [details]): A / 4 newline A"/"4 newline However, the quoting trick workaround does not work well because that puts in additional spaces before and after the slash. Visually, that's not really great.
