Stacked fractions in Mtext

How can I completely STOP this feature, unless I deliberately want it. I didn't see it in right click. And, of course, the wonderful "new" help feature is no help, It doesn't know what a stacked fraction is.

We heed the old help that actually WORKED!!!

Thanks

Stacked Text, not fractions, although if you rely on the HTML help, it still
cannot find it.

That function has not changed in a very long time: create the stack,
highlight it, right-click, select Stack Properties, explore all of your
options.

If you want other 2011 Help options for now...

2011 is unable to save my settings for fraction text size (70% to preferred %). WHere do I go to save those settings?

In 2008 in mtext editor you can save them unders stackecd property.

 

Please help.

There is a system variable called TSTACKSIZE which "controls the percentage of stacked text fraction height relative to selected text's current height. Valid values are from 25 to 125"

You have to select the stacked fraction first and then the new command line appear in the right click menu.  So you can select "Stack Propertie" and "Autostack" uncheck the appropriate box.

 

Once the Automatic Stack is disabled you can reactivate it.  Stack a fraction manually with the buttom in MText dialog box and proceed as described earlier.

You have to stack the fraction manually in Mtext dialog box first, then you have to select the fraction and right click on it.  Now you can see the new "Stack propertie" command.  In the Stack Propertie dialog box select "Autostack" and check the appropriate box.

I noticed when it stacks dates you have to select a portion of it and right click to find the stack toggle.  This is crazy.  Is there some variable that get set when you enter the information in the dialogue box and hit don't ask again?  What if you change your mind?  Seems like it should be available in the ribbon or the properties areas.
