Use \startformula\relax ... \stopformula

Just about anything seems to work: I put in an empty group \startformula{} ... \stopformula

Be careful with empty group in math mode:

\startformula{} -a \stopformula \startformula\relax -a \stopformula

A good example, illustrating a difference between \relax and {}, whatever it may be. I used it just to save some typing in a workaround. It must start with an integral sign having at least one limit: \startformula ∫_a f φ\stopformula \startformula{} ∫_a f φ\stopformula \startformula\, ∫_a f φ\stopformula \startformula\relax ∫_a f φ\stopformula Without limits, I get too much space after the integral sign: \startformula ∫ f φ\stopformula
