Fractions in Microsoft Word

If you type 1/2, Word automatically changes it to look like this.

However, Word will only automatically change it if it's a certain string of characters. For instance, it won't do it for 7/8 or 11/32 or anything like that.

To get fractions to look exactly the same when you're working with odd fractions, you'd better choose to keep them as straight text, or go through using the Equation Editor to create them or you may want to consider a font that's developed specifically to create fractions:
