Fraction with a fraction in the denominator
Hi, How can I make the subfraction in the denominator of a fraction appear smaller even though the nominator is very small? This gives basically three equally long division lines: \startfomula \frac{\mu_{Z}}{\frac{\sqrt{\VAR{Z}}{\sqrt{N_{\text{segments}}}}} \stopformula
Sorry, I meant to write numerator. (In Dutch it is teller/noemer ;)) On 030613 19:40, Sander Maijers wrote:

The fraction line of a nested fractions is in fact shorter than that of its parent fraction, but by a very small amout. This seems to be the standard behaviour  I tried the formula in LaTeX, and the difference is just as small. I agree with you that it would be nice if the difference were a bit bigger in the case of continued fractions, but I suspect that would be hard to automate. Anyway: below is a quick hack for manual adjustment. (I've simplified your formula somewhat  the one in your mail threw some syntax errors to do with {} nesting, and the square roots made it harder to make out the fraction line.)

[…] ok, a new feature for SB:
Thanks hans! Very nice feature. Wikified in http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Command/fraction but the output on the wiki is not correct since ConTeXt there is mkii. Best regards: OK
