Separators > fraction syntax

Use the Fraction syntax property to define the fraction syntax as either a constant literal value or a variable value.

You can define the Fraction syntax as literal or variable.

Literal
A constant value.
Use the Fraction syntax > Value property to select a literal fraction separator from the Symbols dialog box.
Variable
Allow for variable fraction separator values. The following options are available to define the variable fraction separator:
  • Default - Use this property to define the default variable separator value for fractions. The default literal separator value for fractions is a period. Enter the default variable separator character or click the browse button to display the Symbols dialog box in which you can insert any non-printable value.
  • Item - For decimal numbers with a variable fractional separator, the Separator property is Yes and the Fraction syntax is Variable, you can specify an item type for the variable fraction separator.
    Note: An item type with a class of Syntax must exist in the schema to be a valid Fraction syntax Item.
  • Find - For decimal numbers with a variable fraction syntax, the Separator property is Yes and the Fraction Syntax is Variable, the value of the separator can be either the current value or the value of the separator can be determined each time an occurrence of that type is found. Select an option:
    • Yes - Determines the value of the separator each time an occurrence of that type is found. After the value of that separator is found, that particular value is used until it is reset by another find or by the occurrence of that separator as a component.
    • No - The system uses either the value that the separator item is set to currently, or, if it is not set, uses the default value.
