It is indeed a very powerful feature. You should have seen the looks of the faces of the others in my class when I wrote the formulas faster on my computer than they wrote them by hand.

I have since then and forever on been known as "the one that knows computers", but that is another story :)

Unfortunately it does not seem possible to paste equations into Impress text, only into Writer text.

Does anyone have a set of Writer page styles that mimic the page styles in Impress? This is the only way I can think of to make a decent presentation containing well laid-out text with equations.

Hi James,

Actually, it is -- I just checked it. Click in a bullet as shown in the new last section of the post and choose Insert > Object > Formula. You can also paste the formula object from Writer into Impress.


Please tell me how can write square root character in ms word
Please give me response

Hi Vinod,

I'm not sure how to do it in MS Word but in OpenOffice.org writer:

- Choose Insert > Object > Formula
- Type sqrt followed by the number or symbol, like sqrt 5

Thank you! I needed a square root to insert in Writer and I couldn't find any other info simple enough for me :) this explaination was greatly helpful. Bye from Italy!
