Dear developers

I have found one thing about OO Math.
When I want to get numerator over denominator I can use 'div' operator.
But when in this case I cannot just put word 'div' in formulas.
Actually this word exists in formal mathematical language and means operator of
divergence. And example of this You van find here: 

So actually we can use OOMath for many kinds of formulas.
Is it possible to solve this problem
Actually we have to do it somehow.

Thanks a lot.

I don' understand your problem.

Do you want to write a fraction? That is done with 'over'.

Do you want to write the divergence operator? That is done with 'nabla'.

I think the expected div (means divergence) operator is obtained using a % 

As example,  %div widevec B = 0    will write the correct "div" operator applied to vector B

Fixing typo in the summary

The div operator can be reached via "nabla" keyword in the command window (as
Eric mentioned) or via Selection toolbox in the category "other".
It could by more intuitive via command like %div.
