equation editor in word 2007


laurence withau

Wikipedia has an article on Word 2007 equation editor in which it is claimed
that this version of equation editor is incompatible with that of Word 2003
and 2002, which is what I have.It claims that for this reason academic
publishers do not accept submissions in Word 2007. If all this is true, then
presumably it means that with Word 2007 I would have to re-do all the
mathematical work I have already done using equation editor in Word 2002. Can
any one confirm any of this? If so, is there some kind of fix?
Thanking you in advance

The Word 2007 equation editor is a new feature for that version. Word
versions may be backward compatible but they are not forward compatible so
the new editor will not work in 2002. However the old Equation editor is
still available in 2007 and can be used in preference (if installed).

The old command does not appear to be available to add to the QAT (Quick
Access Toolbar) but you can always create a macro

Sub InsEquation()
Selection.InlineShapes.AddOLEObject ClassType:="Equation.3"
End Sub

and add that to the QAT. http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm
