I have the following latex code:

\begin{equation*}
\begin{split}
Vect =& (\frac{1}{55},0,\frac{2}{113},-\frac{3}{46}-\frac{5i}{67},-\frac{1}{50},0,0,\frac{3}{107},-\frac{7}{41},\frac{1}{113}-\frac{4 i}{63}, \\
& -\frac{3}{89},-\frac{3}{289},-\frac{12}{275}+\frac{i}{7},-\frac{18}{137}-\frac{8 i}{143},-\frac{16}{108},\frac{1}{76}-\frac{i}{24},\\
&-\frac{3}{89},\frac{10}{101},\frac{3}{40},-\frac{16}{47},\frac{8}{91}+\frac{25i}{111},\frac{3}{40},\frac{15}{128},\frac{11}{131},\frac{16}{43},0,\\
&\frac{1}{51}-\frac{18i}{137},\frac{7}{20},0,\frac{7}{125},\frac{16}{43},\frac{10}{201},0,0,-\frac{1}{104},-\frac{7}{146}+\frac{7i}{187},\\
&-\frac{1}{81}+\frac{3 i}{62},0,0,-\frac{4}{105}+\frac{4i}{105},\frac{1}{32}+\frac{3 i}{34},0,0,\frac{1}{7},\frac{2}{7}+\frac{4 i}{35},\\
&0,\frac{5}{151}+\frac{6 i}{89},-\frac{1}{44},-\frac{3}{107},-\frac{2}{57}+\frac{10i}{151},-\frac{4}{87}+\frac{5 i}{108},\\
&\frac{21}{118}+\frac{16 i}{123},-\frac{1}{44},-\frac{3}{107},-\frac{3}{107},-\frac{7}{86}+\frac{17i}{145},\frac{1}{44},0,\frac{1}{44},\\
&-\frac{3}{107},-\frac{3}{62}-\frac{15 i}{187},\frac{1}{114},\frac{1}{8826},-\frac{1}{24}+\frac{3 i}{59})
\end{split}
\end{equation*}

If you compile it like that it looks like a mess. Is there any way to write this nicely, say 6-7 elements of the vector on one line, but that the entire vector is perfectly aligned on both sides (like text alignment in Word) ?

A bit tricky, but resorting to inline math seems worth the pain.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{lipsum} % just for the example

\begin{document}

\lipsum*[2]
\begin{equation*}
\mathrm{Vect} = \biggl(
\begin{minipage}[t]{.85\displaywidth}
% make locally the comma to allow line breaks
\mathchardef\comma=\mathcode`,
\begingroup\lccode`~=`,\lowercase{\endgroup\def~}{\comma\penalty 0 }
\mathcode`,=\string"8000
% change the automatic spacing parameters, don't allow breaks at + and -
\thinmuskip=12mu plus 6mu minus 3mu \medmuskip=4mu \binoppenalty=10000
% give more room to lines
\linespread{2.4}\selectfont
$\displaystyle

-\frac{3}{89}, -\frac{3}{289}, -\frac{12}{275}+\frac{i}{7}, -\frac{18}{137}-\frac{8i}{143},

-\frac{1}{104}, -\frac{7}{146}+\frac{7i}{187}, -\frac{1}{81}+\frac{3 i}{62}, 0, 0,
-\frac{4}{105}+\frac{4i}{105}, \frac{1}{32}+\frac{3 i}{34}, 0, 0, \frac{1}{7},

 -\frac{1}{24}+\frac{3 i}{59}\biggr)$
\end{minipage}
\end{equation*}
\lipsum[3]

\end{document}

In some cases this can't work, because some package might already have redefined the comma. You can do a branching to check this. For instance, with your preamble you can do like this (and it will work independently of having loaded breqn or not).

  • Looks nice, but I try to compile it with TexMaker and i get : ! Bad mathchar (32768). l.392 \mathchardef\comma=\mathcode`, A mathchar number must be between 0 and 32767. – Qubix Apr 27 '16 at 13:54
  • I double checked, nope, I don't have another macro that uses comma. – Qubix Apr 27 '16 at 14:03
  • This is basically the beginning of my document: overleaf.com/read/gymswxkhjjfx – Qubix Apr 27 '16 at 14:10
  • @Qubix Do you really need breqn? – egreg Apr 27 '16 at 14:15
  • I removed breqn and everything works. Thanks. :) – Qubix Apr 27 '16 at 14:18
