Description Linus Drumbler 2013-02-24 18:45:43 UTC
When typing an equation with spacing set above zero, this affects the variables, where it should not. They are spaced farther from their coefficients and from variables that follow them. This should not happen.

@Joren, may this can fixed by my last patch:

I sent a patch right now, so it can works after select a new symbol when have seelction, without a selection and so on!!

Maybe this is a duplicated from: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32059

I agree with Linux, but I think this is rather an enhancement request then a bug. It is designed to set spacing between _everything_, so not a bug as in "doesn't work".

Marking this one as NEW.

Kind regards,

This is currently fixed by my patch?

If not, there is a step-by-step way to reproduce this bug?

I do not see an error in current spacing. Keep in mind, that the formula editor does no kerning at all. Therefore the spacing between italic and regular characters might look a little bit wider than you are used from normal text.

You can force to use no space for a special situation by the command nospace{ }.

Space between variables are needed to make visible that there are two variables. Having no space means, that there is one variable which happens to have a name build out of several characters.

Can you attach a screen shot, which shows wrong spacing?
