## box around just one equation inside alignHi,
I am using "\begin{align}..." to align two equations. I would like to put a box around the second equation only. However, "\boxed{...}" does not seem to work if the alignment character "&" is inside the "{}". Any advice? Thanks a lot, Kai - kwicky

## Re: box around just one equation inside alignAs you have seen you cannot directly, but we can cheat a little (in the example memoir is not important, it is jut my standard class in emacs)
- Code: Select all • Open in writeLaTeX
`\documentclass{memoir}` \usepackage{calc,amsmath} \newlength\dlf \newcommand\alignedbox[2]{ % #1 = before alignment % #2 = after alignment & \begingroup \settowidth\dlf{$\displaystyle #1$} \addtolength\dlf{\fboxsep+\fboxrule} \hspace{-\dlf} \boxed{#1 #2} \endgroup } \begin{document} \begin{align*} f(x) &= a \\ \alignedbox{g(x)}{=5} \end{align*} \end{document}
It is the same kind of trick \MoveEqLeft from mathtools make use of - daleif
