Description Joe Smith 2007-03-23 04:57:12 UTC
Double quotes can be used in a formula to indicate text strings which should not be italicized. This syntax has no effect on formulas created by editing the result of the "fn" autotext. Steps to reproduce: 1. File > New > Text Document 2. Type "fn", then F3. A sample formula and number are inserted. 3. Edit the formula (double click) 4. Enclose a portion of the formula in double quotes, e.g. "E"=mc^2 5. Note that the 'E' is still italic when it should now be text and therefore not italic. To fix: In the formula editor, Format > Fonts (note the extra "italic" setting on the text font) Modify > Text > Italic=OFF. Now the quotes will take effect. This only fixes one instance of course, the problem is in the autotext content. Perhaps the official content for this autotext chould be updated so as to not include this italic setting.

MRU->VA: the font settings for the formula in the AutoText fn should be like the default in new formulas. This won't change the look of the sample autotext, but should prevent confusion when editing this.
