Summary0001007: Math symbols outside math environment improperly size in Lua(La)tex 1.10.0
Descriptionmath symbols not in the math environment are improperly sized when a grouping contains a font size change and a table / tabular environment.

math symbols in the math environment are properly sized.

The version information is LuaTex 1.10.0, but that choice was not available in the product version drop-down
Steps To Reproducewith TexWorks install on windows 10 computer, run

latexmk -lualatex test_elz_heb.tex

A big thank-you to the creator of the elzcards style for creating most of the test file.
Additional InformationI used LuaLaTex because xelatex reported an error (using \bigcirc outside a math environment) that I didn't understand, so I tried one of the other choices. I am a LaTeX newbie. Perhaps the correct fix is to require math symbols be used inside a math environment. But I think this test file shows clearly that something in the tabular environment is leaking out of the LaTeX grouping surrounding the table definition.
TagsNo tags attached.

from your description it looks like a latex issue so best report it on a relevant list (this tracker is only for luatex-the-program)

After reading a bit more about LuaLaTex I think I understand better. This tracker is for the implementation of the Lua programming language, while the bug I'm reporting is all from LaTeX-only code.

If that is correct, please:
1. give me hints about the relevant list to report this (I'm a newbie and I really don't know)
2. close this issue

there is a luatex mailing list at with mostly latex related traffic and there is stack exchange
