Diagonal Fractions? [closed]

Is there a nice way to construct diagonal fractions using Math?

If not, it would make a nice feature addition.

Thank you. They've been added to the 4.0.1.4 update. "Wideslash" is the word.

I worked out a clunky workaround.

size +5 {{}^1 / {}_6}

Will give a passable diagonal fraction.

What 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...

I do a lot of math worksheets so sometimes I might need something like 3/16 or x/5.

It 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 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.
