Vertical alignment problem between formulas and text
Comment 2 colman 2005-08-26 22:06:30 UTC
The same mis-alignment occurs with formulas in footnotes using e.g. A sub 1 and
b sub 1 sup 2. Also after scaling to the surrounding text. In my case footnotes
have point size 10 so I use size 10 {A sub 1} and size 10 { b sub 1 sup 2.
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2005-08-30 15:18:10 UTC
formuila objects will be aligned to their physical size, not at th real content.

MRU->UserEx: maybe a new property could be added to formulas - a property which
describes where to put the reference point for the baseline which can be used in
the text.
Comment 4 colman 2005-08-30 16:25:35 UTC
If such a property is added the -default- should be to vertically align a
formulas  main symbol like 'a' in a sub 2 sup 3 with the surrounding text. In
case the formula has a single division bar then that should be the default
reference point for horizontal alignment. 

The vertical alignment of formulas now moves around even in a single sentence.
Therefore I hope that this can be resolved in the 2.0 version.

Please look at issue 972, perhaps it is better to vote there?
