large space after superscript in mathtype

Hello List,

I want to put the following text on a graph, for example along the x-axis:

xlabel(’$m^3/d$’)

This should show the letter m raised to the power 3 and then a slash and the letter d.

When I do this, there appears a large space after the power 3 and the slash.

So much so that the copy editor of the journal I am publishing in asked me to remove the extra white space.

Any suggestions on how to do that?

Thanks,

Mark

I found out a ! (negative thin space in Latex) works.

xlabel(’$m^3!/d$’)
