This question explains how to make
: behave as
\colon. Except that the solution in the most upvoted answer doesn't work 100%. That solution says to make
: behave in such a way, one has to use the command
With that command it looks like this (how it looks for
\colon was added as an optical reference):
So one can see, that the
:, although it should look like
\colon actually has the spacing a bit different. Question 1: Is there a way to fix this ?
For completeness, this is how it looks, when the above command is disabled, and
: is displayed as it normally would:
Question 2: Does activating this option change in any way the spacing of
: when it is not used in math mode?
