The fractions are too large for inline formulas. How can I make them smaller?
Select Format-Text Mode.
This will change the formatting of your formula such that fractions and large operators (such as integral signs) are smaller. Furthermore the limits of large operators are placed to the right of the operator rather than above and below.
Example: becomes in textmode.
This setting is reversed if you select Format-Text Mode again.
