### \phantom is not calculated correctly for =

Hello everyone, I have found myself resorting to \phantom for some things, and am having trouble getting it to calculate correctly for the = sign. Would anyone please confirm this behaviour? The following is a piece of Tex code that I copy and pasted from my Lyx file. \begin{align*} \vec{w} =a+b\\ \phantom{=}a+b\end{align*} It should display w = a+b a+b where the second a+b should line up perfectly with the first a+b. This is not the case. Thank you -Patrick

The following is a piece of Tex code that I copy and pasted from my Lyx file. \begin{align*} \vec{w} & =a+b\\ & \phantom{=}a+b\end{align*} It should display w = a+b a+b where the second "a+b" should line up perfectly with the first "a+b". This is not the case. Thank you -Patrick

### My equation is flowing off the page. What can I do?

Hello everyone, I am a complete beginner to Lyx and am enjoying it immensely. I have typesetted a page of math with it using the eqnarray environment, and now the equations are too long and are flowing off the page. However, there is still lots of space on the left hand side of the page. The reason the equations run off the page is because Lyx insists on placing the = sign in the center of the page. What can I do to get Lyx to move all my equations to the left a bit? Thanks a lot -Patrick
