Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'm not too familiar with latex, but in the equation dialog I usually use: frac{num}{denom} rendered like so: \[\frac{\pi}{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, I've noticed this bug. It has to do with our math typesetting library; we'll be updating to its latest version very soon and that should hopefully help.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And to be clear  both \frac and \over are susceptible to it, unfortunately. Also, I've been using LaTeX for a while and this is the first time I've heard of \over. < shakes fist > :p
