However, as a mathematician, I can hardly imagine a USEFUL equation that doesn't fit in a line. And typesetting it in small size doesn't make it more readable. If you MUST use such equations, just use \multiline (or whatever stands for it in latex). Regards, Alex

The format in latex.ltx is actually in latex.ltx: \@definecounter{equation} \def\equation{$$\refstepcounter{equation}} \def\endequation{\eqno \hbox{\@eqnnum}$$\@ignoretrue} \def\@eqnnum{{\normalfont \normalcolor (\theequation)}} Charley  Charles Hamilton, PhD EIT Faculty Fellow Department of Civil and Phone: 949.824.3752 Environmental Engineering FAX: 949.824.2117 University of California, Irvine Email: chamilto@... 
From: Charley Hamilton <chamilto@uc...>  20030613 15:06:49

Okay, here's something that overcomes the problems I had noted about reduced equation number size. We'll start with how LaTeX defines the equation environment: in latex.ltx: \@definecounter{equation} \def\equation{$$\refstepcounter{equation}} \def\endequation{\eqno \hbox{\@eqnnum}$$\@ignoretrue} \def\@eqnnum{{\normalsize\normalfont \normalcolor (\theequation)}} We revise it to add a \normalsize to the definition of \@eqnnum so that equation numbers are always at "full" size. \makeatletter \@definecounter{equation} \def\equation{$$\refstepcounter{equation}} \def\endequation{\eqno \hbox{\@eqnnum}$$\@ignoretrue} \def\@eqnnum{{\normalsize\normalfont \normalcolor (\theequation)}} \makeatother The \makeatletter and \makeatother are necessary since we are using the @ symbol as a character in command names. Now, we implement the solution suggested by Donald Arseneau on c.t.t. (and one of those linked to by Hans): \makeatletter \newenvironment{smalleq}{% \skip@=\baselineskip \small \baselineskip=\skip@ \equation }{\endequation \ignorespacesafterend} \makeatother The result of these two hacks is that you now have a small equation style, with normalsize equation numbers. CAVEAT: The intended fix becomes a bug when you are doing something strange such as: \begin{small} some junk that is supposed to be small \begin{equation} y = mx + b \end{equation} \end{small} If you expect the equation number to match the surrounding text, I'm not a sufficient wizard to make that happen. However, I am curious enough to keep hacking at it. It would make an interesting tool, although I can't think of a use for it as yet.

Poor phrasing on my part. Yes, they obviously can be scaled based on a scaling of the overall document text size. The issue is that you can't get something for \sim nothing the way that you often can in terms of scaling segments of text using {\small some text}, etc. > The suggestion solution is: > > \begin{small} > \begin{equation} > ... > \end{equation} > \end{small}% percent sign needed here > following text ... > > There are other (useful) posts about this on comp.text.tex  see > http://groups.google.com/groups?q=equation+size&group=comp.text.tex The drawback to *all* of these solutions is that the equation number is downsized along with everything else. Thus my suggestion of manually downsizing the system. The use of \displaystyle, \textstyle, \scriptstyle, and \scriptscriptstyle (correct names now that I have Kopka & Daly in front of me) avoids this problem. However, it introduces yet another. Consider the following equations: \begin{equation} \displaystyle % This is actually the default equation text size a^x = b \end{equation} \begin{equation} \textstyle a^x = b \end{equation} \begin{equation} \scriptstyle a^x = b \end{equation} \begin{equation} \scriptscriptstyle a^x = b \end{equation} Notice that, in the last equation, the x is the same size font as the a. This results from the fact that there is no additional reduction in font sizes. That is what I meant about any suggestion being a gross hack. I define a gross hack as something that only works under limited circumstances. Revised short form: Yes, you can make things smaller easily, but there are serious tradeoffs. Choose wisely. Check out Kopka & Daly for additional information on how the internals of math font sizing *used* to work. I'm not sure that this is still the actual way they are implemented. Perhaps you should ask real authority on the internals of LaTeX. They tend to hang out on c.t.t.

Hi Xuming, I have the same problem. I think it is a matter of a mismatch between the resolution of the eps file and the GS viewer resolution. What I do is use dvi2pdf and view the file with Acrobat when I want to check the appearance of an imbedded eps file. John Mullen Original Message From: miktexusersadmin@...

That may be because \small is a declaration rather than a function and so should be used like this {\small This is small text.} and NOT like this \small{This is small text.} There are various style parameters that control the spacing used by eqnarray, such as \jot, which is the amount of extra vertical space added between rows. Sometimes, \textstyle can be used to make displayed maths take up less space, e.g. something like this (not tested): \[ \textstyle \sum_a^b \frac{c}{d} \] Of course, it may not be good typography to do this; generally LaTeX is a much better guide than is Microsoft Equation Editor, and the amsmath package is even better, especially in the case of eqnarray. BTW, this is a general LaTeX issue and not specific to MiKTeX. Francis

Clarisse  This was discussed some time ago in comp.text.tex. Check on groups.google.com for the archive. The short form: altering this is not easy (in LaTeX), since the math environments were not setup to handle "small" math fonts. There are only three relative sizes of math text: normal, script, and scriptscript. I forget what the "correct" names are, but conceptually the names I used are correct. Anything I could recommend would be a gross hack. Good luck!

Hi, How can I make an equation use smaller fonts? An equation erray in MS Word (made from equation editor) takes up half the text line while it takes up more than a line in the \[ \] environment. It appears that \small{} doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thanks, Clarisse
