Formatting Fractions Is Easy

When I discovered that InDesign was missing a way to make fractions (like Quark’s Make Fraction) I created Proper Fraction Lite (which is free). Just select a fraction, like 1/8, double-click the script and you get a properly styled fraction. That works great for a few fractions, but I didn’t stop there. I went on to create Proper Fraction Pro, the likes of which has never been seen before.

It Finds the Fractions Automagically!

Proper Fraction Pro can format all fractions in an entire document, story or selection! It can format hundreds of fractions in just seconds!

Works With Any Font

Proper Fraction Pro can apply OpenType’s fraction formatting directly to fractions, avoiding issues such as whole numbers being mistakenly formatted as fractions. If you’re not using OpenType fonts, don’t worry. Proper Fraction Pro will still produce great looking fractions for TrueType or PostScript fonts.

Better Looking Fractions

Scaled down fraction characters typically appear thinner than surrounding characters. Proper Fraction Pro strokes the numerator and denominator for a more balanced thickness and better looking fraction. That’s great for TrueType and PostScript fonts.

Custom Kerning & Complete Control

You can easily control how the script formats your fractions in the Pro version’s Preferences window. You can even define kerning pairs to control space before and after the slash. These settings can even be applied to a specific font for the ultimate in control.

Date Detection

Dates could easily be mistaken for fractions, but Proper Fraction Pro detects dates and avoids formatting them.

Quickly Pays For Itself

Considering all the time you will save, Proper Fraction Pro will pay for itself in no time. One user spent 3 hours “manually” formatting 20 pages of fractions. Then he found Proper Fraction Pro and finished the remaining 180 pages in under 10 minutes, saving 27 hours of work!

Requires Adobe InDesign or InCopy for Mac or PC

Proper Fraction works on Mac or PC with InDesign or InCopy CS3 or later. I’ve tested it through CS6 and Creative Cloud CC 2015.

People Love Proper Fraction

Email #1: I was going to download the free version, but with 700 pages of recipes, I figured the Pro version was a steal!

Email #2: Oh my gosh, I just ran the script, 3367 changes, amazing! That made my week.

Rachel Pedersen, Lyonstreet Design

My favorite staff member of the day found you. We’ll be using this on over 3000 text boxes with up to 5 fractions/piece (just for one project). You have saved us countless hours and will be forever in your debt! We just downloaded, installed and ran — and BAM! Well, you know how wonderful it is!

I cannot stress enough how excited I am! I ran around our office building jumping up and down ;)

Kate R, AccuCut®

I just formatted 657 fractions! I’m glad for people like you to help the rest of us along-thanks again.


I just want to congratulate you on producing such a fantastic script. I have saved hours of work today in formatting hundreds of fractions in captions for an art history book. I didn't even have to insert spaces around the fractions first.

For anyone who has struggled with creating fractions, you must try Proper Fraction Pro. This is the second script I’ve bought from Dan Rodney (the other was for making book jackets) and clearly he understands not only the problems users face when working with fractions, but the best solutions. Although the cost may seem steep, for InDesign there’s nothing like this on the market. Moreover, if you use lots of fractions as I do, you’ll soon forget the price and revel in the result.

Dan also has a free version of this script without all the advanced features that’s worth downloading for casual fraction users.

Dan is a genius, and Proper Fraction Pro is a time saver. This script is essential for anyone inputting multiple fractions within Adobe InDesign documents. He offered technical support when I had a question about upgrading and replied within minutes!

This works great! It satisfied all the requirements I need for a client. I have to say, you are the man! I don’t care what everyone else says about you, Dan is the man!

The Proper Fraction Pro script for InDesign/InCopy is AWESOME. It rocks. This script is very useful for my production needs with the series of custom cookbooks I am producing. Fractions will no longer be a hassle with this time saving, intuitive and integrated script. The PRO version is the way to go. I tried the Free version and it worked, so I bought the PRO version. It’s the best $69 you’ll ever spend on a plugin or utility for InDesign.

Works like a dream! Thanks for great documentation too.


I am working on a cookbook with over 400 recipes so it will be great for the conversions, saving me a huge amount of time. Thanks for creating this!


Saves me a TON of time as our corporate font is not OpenType. Kudos!


You’ve spoiled me and I can’t see doing 400+ fractions manually.


Thanks... it does work like a charm. And I have to say, for someone who knows nothing about running scripts you have made it idiot proof.
