aligned to the center when the equations have more than one line. I would

like to align the equation numbers to the last line of the equation (or the

bottom of the object) and wonder how I can do so.

Thanks

The most reliable method is to use a two-column borderless table, with

the equations in the left (wide) column and the equation numbers in

the right (narrow) column. Select the right column, right click it,

select Cell Alignment, and choose the bottom right alignment.

Thanks for the response.

I have created a particular formatting style to automatically number the

equations and align them horizontally and it's been very useful other than

for this stated issue. So I'm wondering if it's possible to maintain this and

just alter some formatting setting such that the equation numbers on the

right can be align to the bottom of the equation object.

I don't think there's anything you can do in a style, but you can ask Design

Science (www.dessci.com or www.mathtype.com), the company that supplies the

Equation Editor to Microsoft. You should also look at their commercial

product MathType, which (among many other enhancements) can make its own

equation numbers.

Niwrad, Jay's correct. His solution of using the table is the only way I

know of to do it in Word. ("It" being aligning the number and the equation

as you described.) Now if you're making web pages out of the Word document,

that's another story all together, but I don't think that's the case.

Jay mentioned MathType. He's right -- MathType will do the numbering &

referencing automatically. Even using MathType though, the only way I know

of to align the bottom of the equation number with the bottom of the

equation is to use a table.

removes the default equation alignment; the 3 pt lower accounts for the white

space at the bottom of the image.

Once you do it for one, use CTRL-Y to apply the same formatting to the other

equations.
