# Vectors not rendering properly

I have noticed for quite some time that vector arrows specified using the TeX command \vec result in a much larger white space after the symbol than it should, eg, $\vec v_i \cdot \vec w$. It is a bit bad for readability and looks quite ugly. Can this be fixed?

Looks fine to me. Here's a screen grab of what you wrote:

(Mac OS 10.11.6, Firefox 49.0)

So it is browser based. I get this in Safari, both on my Mac OS 10.11.6 (Safari 9.1.2) and on IOS 10.0.2.

Edit: Looks fine in Chrome 53.0.2785.116.

Edit II: Of course, I can solve this by using Chrome on PF, but I do not think may people will use something different from Safari to browse PF on their iPhones ...

Indeed. I get the same problem as you do in Safari.

I can confirm this as well. Renders fine in Firefox (two different computers), but with the same spacing problem in Safari/602.1 (mobile).

They need a Safari and OSX version

By Mac OS 10.11.6 I mean OSX 10.11.6. I don't know how to get the Safari version on the iOS, but I suspect it is updated along with iOS.

Apparently Mobile Safari 10.

I'm on my iPad now, and I see that I get the same problem in Firefox 5.3 (iOS 10.0.2). Note the bug is not present in Firefox on Mac OS X 10 (as mentioned above).

Thanks, I'm going to put this into Feedback so they can see the example.
