If you try to write Re into the formula editor it always changes it to that curlicued R used for the real part of complex numbers.
It would be awesome to have an option to disable this feature somehow, as in fluid dinamics Re is used for Reynolds number which has nothing to do with this curlicued R.
Dear András, thanks for your report. I changed the bug to "enhancement" instead of "bug".
You can use ital"Re" in formula editor for correct representation of Re. May be it isn't a bug, but peculiar properties.

started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.

Sergiy's method is just fine for me, thanks.

Just use "Re" since the abbreviation of Reynolds number is not italic.
