How can I scale and set a spacing value for absolute value symbol? I cannot find it in the format menu.
Thanks

I'm not sure what you're after exactly, but you can use lline and rline if you want 'unstretchy' vertical line. The tilde(~) and backtick (`) can be used if you want some extra padding in a particular place. You can change the spacing for all brackets, (including lline...rline) in the format menu:

  • Format > Spacing
  • select 'Brackets' from the Category drop down

This doesn't affect abs but does affect lline ... rline
Try it with these:
Code:

abs {a over b} newline
left lline {a over b} right rline newline
lline {a over b} rline newline
abs {~a} newline
abs {`a`} newline
abs {~~a~~}

Thanks, it works much better using lline and rline than using directly abs....
