MS Word Series: Microsoft Equation Editor 3.0 - How To Effectively Write Equation

Previously, I've wrote an entry about MS Equation Editor 3.0 here and a workaround in case of your equation do not display correctly. There was also an entry to reuse your LaTeX equation in MS Word here. However, some publication require the use of MS built in Equation Editor.

Luckily enough, the latest Equation Editor, MS Word 2007 and later allow the use of LaTeX syntax. The scope of this topic however, will be covered in another entry (if I have some interest to do so :p)...

Today, I would like to make some notes on how to save yourself time and hassle when typing using Equation Editor 3.0.

The answer is very simple....

Read and apply shortcut when writing the equation. Ask Dr. Google!!

The most handy shortcut would be:

  1. ctrl + L; subscript
  2. ctrl + H; superscript
  3. ctrl + J; sub & superscript
  4. ctrl + F; fraction
  5. ctrl + shift + 9; paranthesis
  6. ctrl + [; bracket
  7. ctrl + shift + {; curly bracket
  8. ctrl + R; square root
  9. ctrl + Shift + E; Text style
  10. ctrl + + / ctrl + shift + =; Math style
  11. ctrl + K, then A; Arrow 
  12. ctrl + K, then I; Infinity 
  13. ctrl + K, then T; times symbol
  14. ctrl + K, then < or >; less/greater than or equal to
  15. ctrl + G, then letter; insert Greek symbol
