I see that it is possible to add new auto-correction items. In the default list are present many fractions, like 1/2, 3/5, 3/8, ... that will be typed in the text as a real fraction. I'd like to add other fractions not existing in the list, like 3/2, 5/2, .... but I have no idea how to edit the replaced style. Under the column "replace" I type "3/2", but how to fill the "with" column?

    The special characters for the numerator and denominators are in:

     

    Menu > Edit > Special Characters > click on the gear top left > add Digits - All > select Digits - All in sidebar > double click on the character/s you want and they will appear in the text

     

    eg  ⅔ or ⅞

    The numerators and denominators are in the same place, you just have assemble the fraction from the components.

    Corvisiero,

     

    I think you would be better off looking in "Digits" rather than "Digits - All".

    You have the superscripts, subscripts and Fraction Slash all in one place there. Of course the assembly happens in the Autocorrection pane in Pages Preferences.
