Vertical alignment of inline images is an important feature for LaTeX Math. What plans are there for allowing this parameter for the image component?
to help us understand your ask, can you give a code example of what you’d want to use vertical for, and how you’d like that to show up visually?
For background, LaTeX Math essentially outputs specially formatted text and symbols. If this text includes a lower case y, then the text should be aligned so that the bottom of the y is below the baseline of the text. If there is no way to provide vertical alignment, then the entire image will instead be pushed upwards. This looks quite bad.
I haven’t used Forge, so I can’t give any input on the code for it, but we just need one parameter verticalAlignment which corresponds 1-1 with the CSS attribute vertical-alignment.
@jasonboileau if you need the full power of CSS, you can use Custom UI https://developer.atlassian.com/platform/forge/custom-ui/ .
@RyanBraganza Custom UI renders in an iframe, right? Because iframes also cannot be vertically aligned and the problem remains.
@jasonboileau yes, Custom UI renders in an iframe.
However, UI kit also renders its content in a block-level element, so having a vertical alignment option for an Image component wouldn’t help either.
Can you give some more details on what you’re trying to achieve here? I think this sounds like a feature request, but I’m not sure what feature you’re exactly requesting.
Are inline macros not available on Forge? Sorry, I didn’t realize that they were still missing, and yes that is a very important feature that I would like to (re)request. Specifically I am asking for:
- Inline macros
- Vertical alignment option for Image component and Custom UI iframe
Thanks for the clarification! I’ve found this ticket which looks to be exactly what you’re asking for. [FRGE-42] Inline images + vertical align styling - Ecosystem Jira If you have any additional context, please comment on the ticket.
