BlankSequence[] and BlankNullSequence[] "suddenly" do not display anymore as "continuous lines" in my v.10.0.1 (OSX) (of course even computer reboot did not help) :

They look now like that :

but few days ago in this same v.10.0.1 they used to look like in version 9 :

Does somebody know why it has suddenly changed ? Does anyone has the same behaviour ?

  • $\begingroup$ This is due to the fact that v10 uses a different font than v9. $\endgroup$ – Karsten 7. Nov 25 '14 at 15:42

    $\begingroup$ I think it is useful to distinguish between the different functions at first glance. $\endgroup$ – Yves Klett Nov 25 '14 at 15:44

  • $\begingroup$ @Karsten7. My post was not clear, i will do an edit : i mean that the Blank Sequence in version 10 used to look like in v.9, but "suddenly" it's gone ! $\endgroup$ – SquareOne Nov 25 '14 at 15:55

    $\begingroup$ I agree with Yves Klett & Szabolcs, it's useful to distinguish the 3 pattern types. $\endgroup$ – alancalvitti Nov 25 '14 at 17:08

For the sake of an answer:

I think it is useful to distinguish between the different functions at first glance. – Yves Klett Nov 25 '14 at 15:44

This depends on the font (stylesheet), font rendering settings, your operating system, etc. Why is it a problem? I can see the separators between the _ characters in M10 OSX 10.10. – Szabolcs Nov 25 '14 at 16:43
