I want to write 1/3 in decimal form: 0.3 with a dot above the 3

I have tried

0. dot 3

but that leaves a space between the decimal point and the 3

0.dot 3

doesn't work either

Is there a solution?

You can use the "nospace" modifier on a grouped object (use braces - {} - to delimit group) to avoid spacing between sub-elements:

Single digit with dot

- Code: Select all Expand viewCollapse view
`nospace {0. dot 3}`

nospace {0.3 dot 3}

nospace {0.3 {3 csup .}}

...and also with overline...

- Code: Select all Expand viewCollapse view
`1 over 7 = nospace {0. overline {142857} }`
