Different Word 2016 equation editors

Q: Different Word 2016 equation editors

With the new Microsoft Word 2016 if you insert an equation through the Equation button within the Insert menu you get this new-looking editor.


Equations created in such a way can be viewed in inline, professional or linear mode and offer advanced options.

But if you use a keyboard shortcut (Alt+= or any user defined one) instead you end up getting this old-fashioned editor:


And if you edit equations from documents made by other people sometimes they are opened with the new editor, sometimes with the old one.

Can anyone explain the difference between them and how to force Word to always use the new one, please?, I would like to get it with a keyboard shortcut.
And also how to convert an equation made with the old editor onto the new format?

Regards

Every time I start equation editor it reverts to the “math” “style” which dose not allow for spaces and it is italicized, so every time I start equation editor I have to set the “style” to “text”. How do I set “text” as the default “style”? Please see pic below.

Hi,

New here. For some reason, whenever I try to use the equation editor in word, it works for the equation symbol box symbols, but when I try to add basic signs like = or -, it inserts blank boxes (reads documents the same way). BTW I click on the symbol editor symbols to insert the symbols, then use my keyboard for the basic signs like =.

Oddly the * and / signs are ok. I tried to reinstall the app from the control panel and still have the same problem. Does anyone have any idea what's going on here?? Thanks so much.

A:help my word equation editor seems corrupt

UPDATE.....

I found out that my working computer has a font called symbol installed, that the equation editor uses.
My faulty version only has bookshelf symbol. I looked in the windows/fonts directory and it is not there either.
Any help on how to get the symbol fonts? Even though I can't find a font explicitly called symbol, the insert symbol function
does work properly. It is however, set to normal text.

I looked at the symbol font list on my other computer and it does not include = signs either, just some greek symbols.
Still confused.
______________________________________________________________

I used the repair reinstall office disk and the problem still exists!
It works fine on my other computer.

I may have played with the font styles sometime before.
Does anyone have a photo of what the default styles should look like?

I also have programs like mathematica and mathcad installed.
There should be some way to compare correct font lists somewhere.
This is really annoying as the blank boxes render the program useless.

One other point is that I was going to reinstall word (from office disk), but when you get to the
menu option, it only gives you the choice to "uninstall non selected applications."

I don't want to uninstall the other apps, just replace word.
Do they literally mean the only choice is override or uninstall other applications?
Does anyone suggest just reinstalling the entire program office?

I use Word 2002 in Windows XP. The equation editor in Word is
Microsoft equation 3.0. I have two problems with it, one very serious and the other an annoyance. These problems occur only on my desktop; they do not appear on my laptop, which has the same software.

Problem #1: While in equation editor, I choose any one of the brackets (or parentheses) in the drop-down menu that appears when the Fence Template button is pressed. If I type a number or letter in this bracket, it appears as normal. However, If I try to insert the fraction (i.e., blank numerator and denominator) from the drop-down menu for the Fraction and Radical Template, the bracket or parentheses disappears. To get parentheses back into the equation, I have to copy the
work on to a floppy disk, bring it to another computer where the equation editor does not have this problem, and insert the parentheses.

Problem#2: If I type letters in an equation, they come out Greek unless I go to the Style button on the toolbar and switch from Math to Text. However, any additional typing of symbols, etc causes the style to switch back to Math. How can I get Roman letters when the style is Math?

hi!!!
i'm working on word xp with windows vista and my problem is that the equation editor won't let me edit the equations. here's what i do: first i insert a new equation, then i insert a new structure (like logs or fractions or anything) then i try to edit into the little square that appears but word won't let me write anything, not letters or numbers.
i tried to solve it but i couldn't. the only thing i figured out i could do was that every time i wanted to edit an equation i had to reboot word, i mean if i wanted to edit an equation i could, but the second time it wouldn't let me, so i have to reboot word and do it all over again every single time.
i'm kinda desperate because i'm working in my thesis so it's very frustrating to have to open and close the programm every 2 minutes.

if anyone could help me i would be eternaylly grateful!!!
thanks!!

Every so often, while I'm working with equations in MS Word 2007, I get strange behaviour where the equations seem to be shifted. It's hard to explain, but if you look at the attached photo, one of the equations is selected (far right column). As you can see, the selection box is not where the equation is. I've tried reloading Word, looking at Print Preview, cutting and pasting into another equation, clearing the formatting... Even if I retype the equation within the body, it remains skewed. I have to retype it below for it to work... really annoying. Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this without manually retyping everything?

A:Microsoft Word Equation Mis-alignment

Hmm, ISTR something similar in Word 2007 when I was writing my proofs for Discrete and Foundations.

The only thing I could figure would be to either 1) write the whole thing as an equation, instead of entering the "z >" as text and then building the equation, or 2) doing the exact opposite of 1). I cannot recall *which* one would make it work, but one of those 2 *should* fix it.

I never actually tried the columnar approach except once for a formula sheet that our DE professor allowed us to have during a particularly brutal exam, but if I can find it on my jump drive I'll take a look and see which method I used in that instance, as that is the only time I ever used a multi-column layout. All my proofs for the other classes were normal 1.5 spaced paragraph-type proofs.

I was kind of glad to find Word 2007's equation editor (I don't know if it's new to 2007, but it's the first time I found it) because I'm a math major and it's just darn useful. But, I'm encountering this problem that won't seem to go away and I was wondering if there's a fix for it.

When I justify left, it works for one line. If it wraps around, it breaks in bizarre places (not at spaces), and the lower line is a hanging indent.

Unless it goes to a third line. In that case, the hanging indent is gone and it breaks in two bizarre places.

"Change to inline" fixes the indent problems, but not the bizarre line break problems.

Does anybody know how to fix this?

Thanks,

However, when I save a file using Word 2016, I open it later using File Explorer and it opens in 2007. I cannot figure out why this happens.

Hello:
I recently upgraded to Office 2016, and whenever I use Word 2016, it freezes up. It is set to Compatibility Mode, like all my previous versions of Word (except the first one!), because many of my colleagues in small nonprofit organizations have older versions. I have an ongoing malware program and also did a complete scan and found nothing, so it's not a virus. I've also rechecked the settings, but I can't see anything amiss.

The freeze comes like this: When I open an older text (from a colleague so it is in an earlier version of Word), it opens fine. But the first time I try to scroll or page down, it freezes. Also, when I try to save an older text, it freezes. And when I reopen Word and click on the recovered text in the right-hand column, it freezes immediately. I seem to be able to create new texts, and even save them.

Any ideas about how I can fix this? This is my workhorse program so I really need it. Thanks.

A:Forced Spaces on Word 2016

When you justify paragraphs, MS Word will equalize the spacing between words that are on the same line.  If you think about, this is the only way your paragraphs can end up being aligned to both the left and right margins.  Obviously, there are times when this can result in large unsightly spaces.  The only way to avoid these unsightly spaces is to hyphenate some words.  I don't use MS Office, but there should be a setting somewhere that will apply hyphenation for you automatically.  You can check to see if this setting is on.  Also, it's possible that "hyphenation" dictionaries may be available for you to install to help with this.

Hi:
I just had a very strange result when converting a Word 2016 docx, with headings and Table of Contents, to pdf. I've got Adobe Acrobat Pro and attempted to both "print to pdf" and Save As pdf. Each time I got a popup to update the Contents index. Even if I canceled, the pages would reorder such that one of the images and captions of page 16 would show up on page three. I tried deleting and reinstalling the index; saving as a doc file then attempting pdf; uploading to a free pdf converter. Nothing worked. Eventually I saved as RTF, then converted to PDF. Yay. That worked. When I then saved the rtf as docx, it again successfully converted to pdf. Took me about an hour to troubleshoot.

Any ideas out there? Seems like there must have been some gremlin in the TOC code that got stripped out converting to RTF. Weird. Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome.

When I hold down a key and fill the Text Form Field box, my right margin stays but my left margin and bottom of the text box move so that the words wrap (as I'd like) but the data in the locked area to the left of the field get distorted as the Text Form Field fills with data.

I don't know how to stop this but I know that it can be stopped because this is the second form I have created in such a manner and the first form behaves correctly. On the first form, if I hold down a key and fill the box, the words wrap but the left and right margins stay and the bottom of the text box only gets bigger (not the left side as is happening on my second form as I described above).

I have hovered over the left and right margins and when I get the double line to move them in and out, I have moved both and then one or the other at a time in and out and it doesn't fix the issue.

I also tried using the first form (which works correctly), deleting the existing data in it and importing the new Excel cells into it. The same issue happens. I don't know what I did on the first form to lock the left and right so data only expands downward.

Any suggestions?

Whenever I click on the file tab in Word or Powerpoint 2016 (doesn't happen for Excel) the programme crashes. The tech support at Microsoft are unable to resolve so I'm wondering if it is a HP conflict with Office or Windows 10. Has anyone else experienced this and found out how to resolve the problem?

For clarification, are you using Word 2016 (part of Office 2016) and is the document a word doc (.docx), PDF or what?

Hi All. I've tried all of the border/shading tweaks, table tweaks, playing with some advanced options, etc., but the dreaded dotted border persists. Easiest thing to do is show you an image of what I mean. This is a resume, and I don't want anyone opening up to find the ugly dotted border around the header information. Please see attached.

Note that it does print without a border, and I convert it to a PDF without the border appearing??

I appreciate any help. Again this is Microsoft Word 2016 on Windows 10 64-bit.

So....285-page document. It's a novel, so scene changes as well as 1st paragraph of new chapters are NOT indented. I have an issue where sometimes I want to break a paragraph into two and start a new paragraph. Usually it works, but occasionally it just drops the text down a line w/o the paragraph indent. Sure I can hit tab, but the problem is that I've been warned editors HATE having a bunch of tabs in the doc....I did a "replace all" and got rid of all tabs. Fine, but it also meant I had to go back and hand-fix dozens of scene changes to get them right again. So how do I fix the formatting so I automatically get a paragraph indent, w/o hitting tab, or risking having the existing indents/scene changes go wacky again? Thanks...hope I explained it well....not sure....

So I know this should be very easy. I have a 285-page novel manuscript I'm formatting for submission. I have page numbers that start on the 3rd actual page, which is where Chapter 1 begins. I have a header but it only appears on those first two pages; it stops before Chapter 1. How do I have the header appear on every page of the doc? I googled it but it's confusing....it took awhile to get the page numbering right, because I wanted it to start where it does....I'm afraid if I mess with the header as it is, I'm in for more frustration. A simple step-by-step would be appreciated. Thanks!
