Kern punctuation after equation

We are setting a book in FrameMaker 11 that has hundreds of inline equations. One of the problems we are running into is the punctuation after an equation. In particular, periods and commas are too far away from the equation. The last time we set the book we opened the equations and put the punctuation inside the equation. The author is not happy with this approach as it could compromise the equations.

Is there a way to kern the punctuation and the equation as you would with 2 individual letters? It doesn't seem to work on equations.

Thanks in advance.

My thoughts:

  • Do you shrinkwrap the equation when you are finished inserting it? (Esc m p)
  • Are you aware you can zoom way in (maybe 800%) and drag the right edge of the equation frame closer to the equation contents? The punctuation will follow the right frame edge.
