After a quite extensive search I couldn't find a working solution to this problem:
When I write
vec p
I get the letter p with the arrow far above and to the left.
What can I do to have the vector arrow just above the p?
I'm working under Ubuntu/lucid with OO3.3.0. I tried several fonts but without success.
Is there anybody out there with a hint?
regards
fitzroy

The wide versions of those modifiers are normally better than the plain ones.
Slightly better: widevec p

However, it seems that the centering is done on an assumed non-italic character, and the italic shifts the top of the character out of alignment. A small space may help:
Better for italic variables:widevec{p`}

For closer spacing you may be out of luck. Some suggestions that might help:
See if extra space is set in the menu Format - Spacing..., the Symbols category. Zero in both settings is usually fine.
It may also have to do with non-optimal size of character cells in the font you are using. See if changing the variables font (Format - Fonts) makes a difference.
