Make the argument larger or smaller | Radical Argument panel>Scale H/V field | |

Make the exponent larger or smaller | Root Exponent panel>Scale H/V field | |

Move the exponent up or down | Root Exponent panel>Offset:Bottom field | |

Move the exponent left or right | Root Exponent panel>Offset:Right field | |

Adjust the space between the radical sign and the radical rule | Radical Rule panel>Offset:Left field | |

Make the space between the radical rule and the top of the radical argument larger or smaller | Radical Argument panel>Offset:Above field | |

Make the space between the radical sign and the radical argument larger or smaller | Radical Argument panel>Offset:Left field | |

Make the radical rule extend farther to the right of the radical argument | Radical Argument panel>Offset:Right field | |

Make the height of the radical rule consistant across multiple square root expressions (make it ignore the height of the radical argument) | Radical Argument panel>Asc field | |

Make the bottom of the radical sign consistant across multiple square root expressions (make it ignore the height of the radical argument) | Radical Argument panel>Desc field |

### Notes:

1. The height of the radical sign is based on the height of the radical argument. With the default settings this can result in the the radical sign being a different height from one square root expression to another. Notice in the image below how the height of the radical characters changes based on the height of the argument.

To make the radical the same height across multiple square root expressions edit the Radical Argument panel>Asc or Radical Argument panel>Desc fields.
