I'm trying to get partials to look better in version 3. I've tried all kinds of tricks, including using the Notation package to do this, but to no avail so far. I want a form that currently displays as h^(0,1) [u,x] to display as \partial_x h[u,x] where \partial is the del symbol and "_x" means subscript x. One thing I tried was h^(a_) [b_] := \partial_a.b h[b] Matching this to the previous example was to give a.b = {0,1}.{u,x} = x Thanks Patrick
