ScriptSizeMultipliers

  • ScriptSizeMultipliers is an option for StyleBox which specifies how much smaller to render each successive level of subscripts, etc.
  • ScriptSizeMultipliers is applied to FontSize for characters that appear in constructs such as subscripts, superscripts, underscripts, overscripts and built-up fractions.
  • The default setting for ScriptSizeMultipliers is 0.71, yielding approximately a factor 2 reduction in character area at each level.
  • ScriptSizeMultipliers -> , , ... , uses multiplier for level i, and multiplier for levels n and beyond.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.8.11.
