I am writing a notebook where I want to display some expressions in
Input cells, in the 2-D fractional numerator-over-denominator format.
However, I find that when I open the notebook again some time later,
Mathematica has of its own accord decided to rewrite some of the
fractions in the 1-D format using a "/". I have not been able to pin
down precisely under what circumstances this happens, but it might be
happening when the numerator and/or denominator gets over a certain
length (or perhaps complexity). My trials have failed to find a reliable
pattern of behaviour.
The Input cells are not entered to create Output. They are just used for
typesetting. Expressions copied from these Input cells into other Cell
styles also show the same problem.
Is there some option I can set for the affected cells (or the whole
notebook) to tell Mathematica to leave them formatted just as I compose
