Description 2016-09-09 03:52:09 UTC
If entering over the sidebar

"Division (wideslash)" you get "{<?>} wideslash {<?>}" (with {} around the placeholders)

else if entering

"Division (counter wideslash)" you get "<?> widebslash <?>" (without {} around the placeholders).

This both should be consistent and I think the one with {} around the placeholders should be prefered.

Confirmed the binary operator strings are composed inconsistently into the formula editor when entering Division binary operators from the "Elements" sidebar.
