mathtext : overrightarrow

Hi,

is there any way to display a big arrow on a vector using mathtext, like "$\overrightarrow{AB}$" ?

If not, is there any plan to implement it in a next release ?

Thanks a lot,

Nicolas P.

Handling this like an accent is trivial, and handled with the patch below (which I will commit to SVN).

Handling this in such a way that the length of the arrow changes based on the size of the underlying text is less straightforward and will take some time to implement.

Cheers,
Mike

Thanks for your answer.

It is however not so much useful, since \vec does already the job.

This is what I meant, yes.
Hope you will success, I miss it quite a lot for now.

Thanks again,

Nicolas

The rightarrow is longer than vec. Much more suitable for multiple letters underneath.

I'll get to this when I have the time.
