How do I control the space between the equation number and the right margin in the align environment?

  • @Papiro It is not a duplicate. Sep 22, 2013 at 8:48
  • do you want the position of the equation number changed only for the align environment, or for all numbered displays? Sep 22, 2013 at 12:23
  • since you haven't said what the \gls{...} commands do (there is no example given, and i can't find any reference to that command in the companion), there's not enough information to give a meaningful answer to this question. perhaps it should be closed. regretfully downvoted.

  • No problems. GLS are glossaries commands, When I asked the question, I hadn't identified them as the source. I'll try and submit a minimal reproduceable example later today. Cheers. Sep 22, 2013 at 19:27

A following example hacks into internals of align to add extra space that can be configured using \alignnumbersep:





  a&=b & c&=d\\
  aa&=bb & cc&=dd


  • It turns out that whilst the trigger for my question was an unrelated matter (see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/134587/…), this question as it stands and what you have answered is something that I have wanted to know regardless, so I thank you for your answer. Sep 22, 2013 at 21:12
