Description panic 2003-03-13 14:04:35 UTC
it seems that you cannot use the "newline" command inside a pair of grouped brackets 
left [ bla newline right ] 
doesn't work. this does restrict scalable brackets to the size of one line.  
using standalone brackets with "size" is no alternative since these do not get positioned 
correctly with regard to fractions.
Comment 1 thomas.lange 2003-03-17 08:00:26 UTC
It does not limit the scalebale brackets to one line since you can 
use the "stack" command.
E.g. "left [ stack{ a # b # c} right ]".

However it would be nice if the parser will accept the mentioned 

Target set to OO 2.0 since there is no lack of functional ability.

TL->BH: Desirable but will take a bit of time.
Please have a look if it mets a PCD.

Set OS to all.

I consider this as useful.
Hello Thomas, please give approval for this evaluated OO.o 2.0 flagged
If you confirm with the target OO.o 2.0, then please keep it on your
owner (or the owner of the concerning developer) for implementation.
In case you want this issue for 'OOo Later', then please reset the
target milestone. If you decline the issue finally, please set the
resolution to 'Wontfix' (but do not close). In case of 'OOo Later' or
'Wontfix' please reset it on Bettina's owner. Thank you.

TL->BH: Target changfed to OO later. I've already too many other tasks and hand
for the next release.
Comment 8 thomas.lange 2004-02-20 13:02:03 UTC
TK->BH: back to you for the time being.

You can achieve this effect by using the command "none":
left[ bla right none
left none blabla right]
The point is that brackets must be closed in the same line, but there is no need
to close them with another bracket: using "none" is fine.
Maybe the problem is not with "newline", maybe the problem is with the
documentation of "none" (take a look in the OOo Math forum at

Ups! I misreaded the original problem, sorry... This is not about break a line
with brackets, but to surround many lines with only a pair of brackets...
My fault...
By the way, using stack (or matrix) is a fine solution, though.
Sorry again
