The only font that MS provided with Word 2007 that contains the full set of Mathematical operators that the MS Equation Editor can

use is Cambria Math. You can use the Equation Tools to create a 'normal text' region and cut and paste your math region equation

into that area and apply a different font or paste it outside of the equation object and in either case apply a different font, but

you may find that it changes not just the look but the equation if the same symbol set is not available in your 'other' font.

There may be other fonts that will support this or other equation editors such as http://mathtype.com that you may want to look

into.

How do I change the default font for math regions in the Equation options?

have numerous equations to add. I have math type at work, but the Equation

Editor in Word 2007 is much quicker and easier.

I think you must be the only one who thinks so--or at least the first time

I've seen such a comment here!

difficulty with the equation editor. Many of the professional journals that

we submit papers to require the Times New Roman font for all of the

submission text including equations. Are there any easy fixes?

Our group has just started to use Office 2007. We are having the same

difficulty with the equation editor. Many of the professional journals that

we submit papers to require the Times New Roman font for all of the

submission text including equations. Are there any easy fixes?

as long as nobody releases a (similar to) TNR math font, you're stuck

with Bob's workaround. Or you can still use the old Equation Editor

(Insert | Text | Object | Object: Equation Editor 3.0).

someone else would respond first. Since the company I work for creates

and sells the product that solves this problem, it sometimes comes

across better if someone else makes the recommendation rather than me.

In fact, Bob Buckland in an early part of this thread mentioned our

product MathType and gave our URL. So, that brings me to the answer to

your question.

You asked if there are any easy fixes. That depends on what you're

constraints are. The two constraints you mention are that you're using

Word 2007 and you must use TNR font. You didn't say if you're

constrained to using the "new" equation writer in Word 2007. If so,

then not only are there no "easy" fixes, there are no fixes period.

If you can use other tools for the equations then there are two fixes,

both of which are easy and practical. One fix involves using the same

Equation Editor that shipped with earlier versions of Office. Some

people don't realize this editor (aka "Microsoft Equation 3.0") is

available in Office 2007. Access it with the same command as in

earlier versions: Insert > Object. With Equation Editor, you can use

any font or any size font you want. There's no way to directly add it

to the toolbar, but we have an article on our website that shows how

to add it in a more indirect way:

http://www.dessci.com/en/support/mathtype/tsn/tsn124.htm

That product -- Equation Editor -- is free, because it already comes

with Office. The other solution is the more comprehensive product,

MathType, which includes more fonts, more symbols & templates, and

other features that matter to some people. For a full list of features

and a comparison of MathType with Equation Editor, see our website

I _think_ there would be a solution: developing a TNR math font.

Certainly not a task for your typical end-user, granted ...

Yep, and certainly a lot of math glyphs to create. I'll get on that

tomorrow. ;-)

The Cambria and Cambria Math fonts are not entirely dissimilar to Times New Roman (especially if you reduce the character spacing by

around 0.26pts <g> , but rather than go that route, there is a math font set based on Times New Roman that was to be released in

April <g>. The site was just updated to move that date to August http://stixfonts.org/finalsteps.html

With the sponsor list at the bottom of that page there's a good chance that it will be accepted by publications <g>. For me, a

bigger issue is the really terrible quality of the Equation graphic representation generated by Word when an equation is saved to

PDF or as a .doc file. MS Research has come up with a better resolution to solve a related problem, so perhaps there's hope for

this. There are likely more places/publications/schools that will insist on receiving Word documents in .doc format and that would

find the 'equations' to be less than ideal, which would tend to reduce the folks working with the Word 2007 Math/Equation tools.

I tried to utilize the fonts Computer Modern

(http://canopus.iacp.dvo.ru/~panov/cm-unicode/download.html) and Latin Modern

(http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/latin-modern/download) since they

are used often in type-setting Mathematics equations to replace Cambria Math.

However, I can't seem to find a way to do so. Any help?
