is it possible to the division / be taller, like left[ or left( are?

left[ matrix{ a ## b } right] / left[ matrix{ c ## d} right]

something like this:

[ a ]  / [ d ]
[ b ] /  [ e ]

instead of what i get:

[ a ]    [ d ]
[ b ] /  [ e ]

(use imagionation to see a contiguous tall [] and / :)

Yes, i know this is not desirable on most cases, but truth is that i'm shoehorning the math syntax to get lingistic syntax. It is not pretty, but beat all the alternatives.

Something like: { left [ matrix{ a ## b } right ] size 30 {"/"} left [ matrix{ c ## d } right ] }

Good workaround! The scaling (thickness of dividing bar) issue is probably related to bug fdo#32362.

thanks. looks good in cases like {matrix{ alignl ε " __" e ## alignl ⊃ "__" o}} size 30{" / "} left[ matrix{ alignc "__" ## -stress} right] but not so on { left[ -baixa right] rightarrow left[ matrix{ %alpha alta ## %alpha baixa } right] } size 30 {"/"} { left[ matrix{ — ## -stress} right] } C_0 "#". but overall better than the small one.
