Hello all,
There have been various postings on this list about the wrong
positioning of the radical extender. I found that it depended on which
font family was being used. It turned out that some text faces have a
square root sign which was therefore being used in place of that from
the symbol font, but the extender was still from symbol.
On removing them from the text fonts, the problem was cured.
So (a) when using a different family use a matching symbol face, or (b)
maths symbols should be omitted from text faces, or (c) eqn should
ensure that maths symbols are from the symbol fonts, or ...
What do people think?
Denis
