Font problems under Windows Vista

Font problems under Windows Vista

In the attacheched file you can see some characters with a cross. This kind of characters are very helful to use it as variables. Under Mathcad 14 M020 and Windos XP you can get it from the font Mathcad UniMath. But if you use such characters under Mathcad 14 M020 and Windows Vista 32bit, the cross over the characters is out of the center and therefore
corrupt.
Has anybody any ideas how I can solve this problem?
Many thanks in advance

The notation of a line over a variable, such as

is known as a "bar" or "vinculum".

Attached is the converted worksheet to P9. You can use it to make your own variable with "vinculum" following these steps:

1. Place the cursor to the right of T:

2. Type in your own letter (the "vinculum" will move to the right letter):

3. Place the cursor to the left of the new letter and hit backspace to delete the first letter:

In mathematics and other disciplines, this type of notation can serve various purposes. For example:

In statistics, it often represents the mean or average value of a set of numbers. So Perez_0-1712984196657.pngwould be read as "the average of T".

 

In physics, it can represent a time-averaged value over a cycle or period.

 

In number theory, it can represent the conjugate of a complex number.

 

In genetics, it can denote the wild type or normal allele of a gene.

 

In logic, it is used as a negation symbol.

 

The specific context in which the notation is used determines its meaning.

Update from Vista to Windows 7, or 10...?

But the problem may also be due to your screen driver...Are you running XP and Vista on the same hardware?

 

Success!

The question is 15 years old. I guess the user already updated his OS in the meantime 😉

Oh, the joys of software archaeology—digging up issues from a time when Vista was a fresh concern! I'd say after 15 years, that 'cross' might have found its way to the center, or maybe it got tired and decided to move out entirely.🤣😂
