Creating Fractions in NewWrite
Here's a cool way to enter fractions in NewWrite:
If you need, you can adjust the character spacing (kerning) to align
the elements of the fraction more precisely.
- Select Superscript in the Styles menu.
- Select Plain text from the Styles menu.
- Type the special fraction slash: SHIFT+CTRL+ALT+3.
(If the special slash does not appear in the font you are using,
use the Sather Gothic or the Shattuck Avenue font just for the slash.)
- Select Subscript from the Styles menu.
- Type the denominator.
A suggestion: If you're going to use this fraction often,
you might want to save it in a scrapbook.
If you want to preserve your leading (line spacing), try reducing
the size of the super- or sub-scripted characters by 3 points for
text sizes up to 12 points; experiment with even larger reduction
for larger font sizes.
