# Re: [NTG-context] Primes far too high in Lucida Type1

Hi Wolfgang,

That 's a pity indeed. I played around a bit and found a dirty hack
using catcodes. Maybe not the best solution, but it works for me.
Posting it here for future reference.


\define\textprime{'}
\makecharacteractive '
\define'{\lowerbox{0.3ex}\hbox{\math{\textprime}}}


Cheers,
Tim
