**The fractions are too large for inline formulas. How can I make them smaller?**

Select **Format** → **Text Mode**.

This will change the formatting of your formula such that fractions and large operators (such as integral signs) are smaller. Furthermore, the limits of large operators are placed to the right of the operator, rather than above and below.

Example: becomes in text mode.

This setting is reversed if you select **Format** → **Text Mode** again.
