In Mathematica you can overwrite characters by first of all typing them next to each other in the usual way, and then selecting each block of characters that you want to shift (left or right), and using ALT-LEFTARROW or ALT-RIGHTARROW repeatedly to nudge the block to wherever you want it to be. For instance, here is the Dirac equation that I created by nudging a / leftwards so that it sits on top of a \[PartialD]: Cell[TextData[Cell[BoxData[ FormBox[ RowBox[{ RowBox[{ RowBox[{"(", RowBox[{"i", " ", RowBox[{"\[PartialD]", RowBox[{ AdjustmentBox["/", BoxMargins->{{-0.6666666666666666, 0.6666666666666666}, {0., 0.}}], RowBox[{"-", "m"}]}]}]}], ")"}], "\[Psi]"}], "=", "0"}], TraditionalForm]]]], "Text"] Paste this Cell Expression into a notebook to see it rendered. -- Stephen Luttrell West Malvern, UK "Shaun Culver" <admin at shaunculver.com> wrote in message news:g7uo34$5ut$1 at smc.vnet.net... >I need to insert the slash notation into a Mathematica document.
