Document.OMathBreakSub Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies how Microsoft Office Word handles a subtraction operator that falls before a line break.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word
Assemblies:   Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.v4.0.Utilities (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.v4.0.Utilities.dll)
  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.dll)

WdOMathBreakSub OMathBreakSub { get; set; }

This property is used only when the OMathBreakBin property is set to wdOMathBreakBinRepeat. Subtraction sometimes receives special treatment when a line break falls on a subtraction operator and the document setting is to repeat the subtraction operator on the following line, because two negatives make a positive. Some writers choose to convert one of the minus signs into a plus sign, and some choose to keep the two negatives.
