How to set text height for stacked fractions?

A - answer When AutoCAD converts text (mtext) to a stacked fraction, text height is made smaller by the ratio set in the TSTACKSIZE system variable. You can change this value (70% by default) from 25% to 125% of a normal text height. When entering indices (upper/lower) using the stack method this value also influences relative size of an index.

The stacked fraction alignment is controlled by the TSTACKALIGN variable.
