Space between Equations sub-sections

Postby hmluqman » Sun Oct 09, 2016 8:24 pm

Hello

I am creating a equation using formula editor. I want to create something like this:
"p(x_i) = y_i _______________________ for all i = 1 to 10."

I want to create space instead of series of underscores between equation and condition. How can I do that ?

This seems to be a question for the Math forum, not the Writer forum.

p(x_i) = y_i "               for all i = 1 to 10."

Math syntax

You can also use ~ and ` for regular and thin spaces.

If you want the spacing to match the width of a string of underscores, you can use the "phantom" modifier:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
p(x_i) = y_i  phantom "________" forall i in  lbrace 1 dotslow 10 rbrace
