comment Is there a visual editor for LaTeX that allows for graphical editing of the layout elements (like margins, headers etc)
And there's a thing called Metaflop that is an interactive editor for Metafont programs -- metaflop.com

I'd say that Adobe Illustrator is a graphical editor for Postscript programs.

Thanks, Khaled. I think I'll use some easily reversible macro hack, for now. I can remove it if/when the Latin Modern folks get a few minutes of spare time to implement the fix you mentioned.

@Heiko -- thanks for all your effort. As I said, I'm using Latin Modern and XeteX. So, what you wrote about pdfTex is not applicable, is it? And the solution you described for XeteX doesn't work with Latin Modern (apparently because of some deficiencies in that font family). Did I understand correctly? Thanks again.

Also, if I were to try this, is there any helpful documentation, anywhere? Or could I just copy/adapt the data in the XITS fonts, which I assume were done correctly :-)

Thanks. I don't want to abandon Latin Modern Math. Or, at least, I don't want to abandon the Computer Modern "look". So, if I understand correctly, the "right" solution is to fix the Latin Modern Math fonts so that they support the "cut-in" approach to subscript positioning. I suppose this means putting suitable entries into the OpenType "Math" table(s) in the font. This could be done using FontForge, couldn't it? I'd be happy if just the "P" character worked, for now. Would you say this is a large job? Hours? days? weeks?

As I said, I know how to fix each formula individually. Is there any way to build this correction into my "P" macro, so that it gets applied whenever P has a subscript?

Thanks. That's bad news. I know that TeX didn't know anything about glyph ink in the old days, but I thought modern versions could leverage the extra info held in "math" fonts like Latin Modern and Cambria.
