### Equation

by **Colleen** » Sun, 05 Oct 2003 04:02:35 GMT

Microsoft Word 2002 Equation 3.0 editor does NOT work like
the Microsoft Word 2000 Equation editor. Are there any
patches to fix the things that weren't broken but now are?
I tried (along with numberous Word experts) to type a
certain type of equation and it won't work. Works just
fine and dandy on Word 2000 but not on the 2002.
HELP!
Thanks for any advice you can give me.

I believe the version of Equation Editor is the same in both Word 2000 and
Word 2002. What are you unable to do in Word 2002?

Colleen, the 2 Equation Editors are essentially the same.
Please be more specific than "it won't work". I'll try to help,
but I need more information -- as much as you can give.

2.Equation Editor in Word 2008: Blurry, Pixilated Equations?

As a student who writes a lot of equations, this is a very annoying issue for me. I don't know if there is something I need to do to fix it, but I am confused.
When I insert an equation via equation editor, it looks fine. However, if I save my document and re-open it, all my equations are pixilated like a low-res image. If I double click the equation to edit it, and then close equation editor, the equations go back to normal again - however, it gets lost again any time I exit and restart Word.
This is not a major annoyance with only a few equations, but as someone like me who has upwards of 20 equations in their paper, this is a major problem.
Is there any way to make sure Word keeps the equations clear and doesn't make them all fuzzy? It's a pain to go through every equation to make them not blurry after every time I reopen my document.

3.Equation Editor equations turning into pictures

I have a document with several hundred equations in it. When I opened
it today, the equations were all formated at pictures. I can no longer
open them with equation editor. Has anybody had this problem before?
Is there any way to get the "pictures" to turn back into equations?

4.no equation editor, no object type -- Microsoft equation

Hi,
My original document was written with Word XP...now that I have a Mac,
I installed the Office for mac 2004 (student and teacher edition)...I
can't edit all my equations. It says "Word cannot locate the server
application for Equation.3 objects"...or even when I want to try to
insert and equation, there is no options for "microsoft equation" What
should I do?

5.MS Word equation editor won't open when double-clicking on an equation

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
Processor: Intel
I created a document (.docx) using the Office 2008 version of MS Word some time ago (2 months or so). Recently I wanted to correct an equation in that document and re-opened the document (on the same system and with the "same" copy of Word) and attempted to double-click the equation to edit it. Instead of the equation editor I get the "Format Picture" dialog box. In the interim I did install an update (I tend to try to stay up to date) and am at 12.2.4 (100205). <br><br>The application will let me create new equations just fine. How can I get my document back to an editable state?
