Hi.

Having this little issue:

When trying to write "5%mu A" (microampere), then the result gets as seen below.


I think there is a little bit to much space between micro and A. Is there a way to minimize this space?

I cannot omit the space between &mu and A.

Why not use plain Greek µ instead? Such as:
Code:
5 ital µA


Result:

Because it's easier to remember "%mu" than the keyboard's code (Alt + some number). But it works fine using that method too. There is no "native micro" on my keyboard.

And I don't usually complain about this fine program, but I'd count that as a "bug" when simply omitting the space defeats the entire translation and purpose, producing only the "muA" English alphabetised version. The sole purpose of the drop-down list is to provide the means to avoid such issue, and produce the Greek character directly.

By your reply, I guess you use MS Windows, right? Then you've got some options, at least:
1) Get and install Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator and create a custom layout with μ (BTW, I've typed it in here with my own layout by simply AltGr+m!).
2) Get and install PopChar utility that makes available all characters of all fonts on your machine (http://ergonis.com/products/popcharwin/),

I have a similar question which can not be solved this way.

How do I remove the space between italic and nitalic chars?

For example,
Code:
int_0^10 e^x  nitalic d ital x

and it results in


I want to diminish the space between nitalic{d} and ital{x} in this case.

Furthermore, what I want is a local diminishing of the equation but not global changes. Since OO.o Math supports ~ (command for adding a tiny space), I wonder if there's certain command for shortening space?
