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.

Try 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 "|"?

Yes I meant the first possibility. I completely overlooked this. Thank you very much!!
