Firemath - The Formula Editor
If you have followed the foregoing examples, you should
already be able to generate various elements. Therefore, the explanations here are
You will find the set elements used in this example in the tabs panel under tabs and . With these you should be able to create expression
Please make sure to use fences
Fences are elements, which contain other elements. Separators between these elements can be specified individually. In this context, the fences in our example so far contain only one element. So how do we add a second element? Notice that Firemath shows two pink dots inside of the fences when in editing mode. If you locate the cursor on the dot on the right, you can start inserting the second element and make our expression look like
Obviously, the separators between the elements defaults to commas ','. This is not
what we want in our case. Therefore, move the cursor until it covers the entire
fences expression. Click the attributes button
and insert '|,' (yes, two characters) behind 'Separators'.
Now, we are ready to insert the third element. Just make the equation appear as
Once again, you can use a fences button
to obtain this. The reason why we inserted the two characters '|,' for the separators becomes
obvious, now. Inserting more elements inside our fences, the last character — the comma in our
case — is used as separator.
Into the bargain, also the fourth element contains fences. In fact, these fences contain three elements by themselves. An ellipsis button can be found in the tabs panel. Using this you reach our target:
