Line breaks in Latex

  1. Jul 16, 2011 #1
    I'm writing a large set, and the brackets seem to prevent the automatic line break. How do I work around this? I would like to have the line break be even with my margin of 1.5cm.

    It's not clear exactly what the situation is - are you talking about an inline math expression? It's really helpful when you post these questions to provide a minimal example demonstrating the problem.

    https://groups.google.com/d/topic/latexusersgroup/B2r_Pt6TglY/discussion" I don't believe that its the Set brackets preventing the line break (unless you're using \left\{ \right\}) as \{ \} is very different from { }.

    I'm not sure if \linebreak[num] works in inline math mode... but it's worth trying. You should read http://www.personal.ceu.hu/tex/breaking.htm

    There's a variety of solutions presented at
    I'm sure that you can adapt one of them to your problem.

    Post here (with a minimal example) if you have problems implementing one of the above.
