When using the Math program, I want to insert a modulus sign "|" for
a complex number like |z| in a equation.
How can I do this? I tried several things without success.
Thanks in advance.Thu, 06 Dec 2012 13:12:35 +0100https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/8693/inserting-a-modulus-sign/Answer by famo for <p>Hello,</p>

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/8693/inserting-a-modulus-sign/?answer=8696#post-id-8696Try `abs{z}`, it is in the right click menu of the input bar under functions -> the very first entry.
Edit:
Or do you mean just the vertical bar? Did you tried `"|"`?Thu, 06 Dec 2012 13:48:50 +0100https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/8693/inserting-a-modulus-sign/?answer=8696#post-id-8696Comment by famo for <p>Try <code>abs{z}</code>, it is in the right click menu of the input bar under functions -> the very first entry.</p>
