How to create fractions?

How do I create fractions, like a half?

It might depend on the font you are using, whether it includes the glyphs for fractions. If it does, then typing 1 / 2 without the spaces, should automatically be replaced by ½ more or less as soon as you press the spacebar after the 2. If the font doesn’t contain that glyph, then nothing will happen.

It’s set in Apple Menu > System Preferences… > Keyboard > Text … or it should be, along with all the other basic fractions of thirds, quarters and eighths.

I find Scrivener slightly slow to react on those replacements — whereas here in Safari it’s instantaneous.
