They've been added to the 4.0.1.4 update. "Wideslash" is the word.Fri, 02 Aug 2013 23:27:40 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/542/diagonal-fractions/?comment=21041#post-id-21041Answer by qubit for <p>Is there a nice way to construct diagonal fractions using Math?</p>

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/542/diagonal-fractions/?answer=4379#post-id-4379What kinds of diagonal fractions are we talking about?
Unicode has a lot of glyphs (e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_Forms) for basic fractions, so I wonder if you could just do a simple search-and-replace... maybe even run that as a macro...Mon, 30 Jul 2012 19:38:55 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/542/diagonal-fractions/?answer=4379#post-id-4379Comment by tzot for <p>What kinds of diagonal fractions are we talking about?</p>

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/542/diagonal-fractions/?comment=15182#post-id-15182I do a lot of math worksheets so sometimes I might need something like 3/16 or x/5.

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/542/diagonal-fractions/?answer=733#post-id-733It would be a nice feature addition, something like a "compact" or "in-line" format option, I agree (something like the two different LaTeX equation types). I don't know how hard that is though.
For now, I keep using [TexMath](http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center/texmaths-1) for equations (but I know LaTeX syntax already, and am used to the way the equations turn out); if only that could create something more than a picture. It is much more complex than what Libreoffice Math can do, so using the output of that with Math seems unlikely to be easier than adding an option for diagonal fractions.Thu, 01 Mar 2012 14:27:45 +0100https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/542/diagonal-fractions/?answer=733#post-id-733Answer by MegaTallDave for <p>Is there a nice way to construct diagonal fractions using Math?</p>

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/542/diagonal-fractions/?answer=1553#post-id-1553I worked out a clunky workaround.
size +5 {{}^1 / {}_6}
Will give a passable diagonal fraction.Wed, 28 Mar 2012 22:16:14 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/542/diagonal-fractions/?answer=1553#post-id-1553Comment by qubit for <p>I worked out a clunky workaround.</p>

Please consider [filing an enhancement bug](https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/bug/). Thanks!Thu, 21 Feb 2013 08:25:09 +0100https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/542/diagonal-fractions/?comment=12712#post-id-12712
