Hi, i want to break a long formula among multiple lines but its enclosed within a bracket and i am unable to break it. Formula:

{c} rsub {x} = sin(a0)(cos(a1)(a0 + a0sin(a1) - 1.0d1cos(a1)) - 1.0cos(a0)(d1cos(a0) + a1sin(a1))) - 1.0d1*cos(a1)

I would like to add a newline in between the formula so that it spans in multiple lines. How should i do it ? Please help

Math has several types of brackets: (), [], {}; and it also has their scalable variants: left ( ... right ), left [ ... right ], left { ... right }. The scalable variants allow mixing left and right parts, like in left ( a + b + c right ].

There's another special bracket pair: left none ... right none, which logically closes the bracketing, but doesn't draw anything. So, mixing that none with the other scalable brackets, you may achieve what you wanted:

{c} rsub {x} = sin(a0) left(cos(a1)(a0 + a0sin(a1) - 1.0d1cos(a1)) right none
left none - 1.0cos(a0)(d1cos(a0) + a1sin(a1)) right) - 1.0d1*cos(a1)

Use keyword newline but it will start next line at left formula margin. You probably need more sophisticated alignment constraint.

Read the Math Guide for extensive information or, at least, refer to the built-in help through menu Help>LibreOffice Help
