nicefrac in siunitx

Postby Singularity » Sun Mar 06, 2016 10:17 pm

Is it possible to use standard units as in package siunitx and have the units display as if in a \nicefrac?

Also, how do you get the number portion of sinunitx (e.g., \num{\nicefrac{a}{b}}, or \Si{\nicefrac{a}{b}}{\units}) to work with \nicefrac?

I've looked over all of the options (and the cryptic documentation), but do not see how to make that work.

You can use the original nicefrac, just turn of the siunitx internal parsing in such a case:

  1. \usepackage{siunitx}
  2. \usepackage{nicefrac}
  3. ...
  4. \SI[parse-numbers = false]{2\nicefrac{1}{4}}{\hour}
