I have been using LaTeX for about two or three years now for typesetting essays and reports for my degree. In this time LaTeX has all but replaced Open Office as my primary text editor.

Since some of my recent projects have gone up against the limits of what can be done as a mere user of LaTeX, I have now started delving deeper into the underlying Tex. In particular I am working on writing my own version of the begriff package, a package used for typesetting Frege's Begriffsschrift, since I wasn't quite happy with the results it produced.

That makes sense. And yes, I want \temp to take on the width of the wider of \Fconsequent and \Fantecedent whichever that is. If somebody does still know how to that in a "LaTeXy" way, I would appreciate it... I will have a think about it myself.

So... moving the \new... commands outside the macro has fixed half the problem. I have updated the question to reflect this, and included a minimal working example.

Thanks for spotting the \setlength \newlength mixup. What I really meant to compare was \dimen0=value and the combination \newlength{\name}\setlength{\name}{\value}. I have seen those two used for identical purposes. I guess my muddled brain simply turned two commands into one. Funny how brains work sometimes.

Sometimes things can be so simple. Thanks for the quick replies. There goes my first vaguely embarrassing newbie question. I am sure there will be more to follow.
