MS Word

Is it possible to use MS Word as the default. One of my projects requires that I be able to type fractions such as 1/2. This does not work well in the editor while MS Word does the job.

Have you enabled fractions in the “Edit Substitutions” window, accessible from the Corrections options tab? Make sure “Enable additional substitutions” is turned on as well. Fractions should be working just fine if you have them set up.
