Description chinwoon_koh 2018-03-06 19:30:04 UTC
I searched in LibreOffice Math to enter Bra and Ket Vectors under the brackets section but only the inner product of the Dirac notation is provided. There is also no outer product notation as well.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch LibreOffice Math
2.Select Brackets

Actual Results:  
only <|> and <> bracket can be seen

Expected Results:
there should be brackets <| , |> and |><| in the software

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
It will be good to cater for the all the symbols that are used in maths

Comment 1 V Stuart Foote 2018-03-06 21:32:29 UTC
Not clear we need predefined paired brackets. Beyond what scalable StarMathML markup provides; e.g.:

left langle left lline <?> right rline right rangle
left rangle left lline  <?>  right rline right langle 
left lline left rangle  <?>  right langle right rline

But OK I guess.

With this example imported from Eguation 3.0, it seems to be no issue to write and reproduce it the same way into LO.

I agree with Jacques in comment #2. No problem to reproduce Dirac notation (Ket & Bra). So closing as WorksForMe.
