I'm wanting to typeset a derivative at a point, shown with a tall vertical bar to the right of the derivative (in traditional form), with the values at the bottom right of the bar in subscript size. I've tried using :|: et al, but they're never tall enough. Is there any way to do this?

Hi, Antony,

Is this:

\!\(\(A'\) \((x)\)
SubscriptBox[\(x\), \(0\)]]\)

the form you are looking for? If yes, Make the vertical bar using Menu/Palette/Writing Assistant/Typesetting/x and choose there the button of the first column and 5th row as the vertical bar. You write the expression you need, then put this bar, then press Ctrl+underscore and put there the point notation. In my case it was x0.

Have fun. Alexei
