It is very hard for me to maintain the correct position of my mathematical expressions after I edit the text in the slide. After any new editing I have to rearrange the position of every mathematical formula in the slide. I can' t believe this is the standard way to use mathematics in Impress!Mon, 23 Sep 2013 01:22:17 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/23000/how-can-i-put-mathematical-equations-inline-with-text-in-impress/Answer by oweng for <p>Is there a way to put mathematical equations in a continuous way along the text in Impress?

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/23000/how-can-i-put-mathematical-equations-inline-with-text-in-impress/?answer=23006#post-id-23006Is [this](http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/users/msg04472.html) mailing list entry from a couple of years ago any help?
**EDIT:** I did not have time before, but it appears bug fdo#35033 is the related report, which includes links to several related Apache OpenOffice issues: [aoo#22309](https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=22309), [aoo#29989](https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=29989), and [aoo#88185](https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=88185). All this would seem to suggest that it is a protracted matter relating to anchoring objects (frames) as character in Impress. It may even point to a shortcoming in the ODF v1.2 specification as there are marked differences between which elements/contexts are defined for ODT/ODS vs ODP/ODG.Mon, 23 Sep 2013 03:14:41 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/23000/how-can-i-put-mathematical-equations-inline-with-text-in-impress/?answer=23006#post-id-23006Comment by oweng for <p>Is <a href="http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/users/msg04472.html">this</a> mailing list entry from a couple of years ago any help?</p>

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/23000/how-can-i-put-mathematical-equations-inline-with-text-in-impress/?comment=23014#post-id-23014Yeah, I had a bad feeling it may not suit b/c as you say it is really just a workaround for smaller applications. I have updated my answer with more detail, although I am not sure it is any more hopeful.Mon, 23 Sep 2013 08:29:46 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/23000/how-can-i-put-mathematical-equations-inline-with-text-in-impress/?comment=23014#post-id-23014Comment by Gonzalo for <p>Is <a href="http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/users/msg04472.html">this</a> mailing list entry from a couple of years ago any help?</p>

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/23000/how-can-i-put-mathematical-equations-inline-with-text-in-impress/?comment=23011#post-id-23011Thanks, they certainly mention a workaround, anyway it is far from practical for a large presentation. I wonder whether there is any plan to implement inline mathematics for impress, and when will it be available!Mon, 23 Sep 2013 05:02:22 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/23000/how-can-i-put-mathematical-equations-inline-with-text-in-impress/?comment=23011#post-id-23011Answer by callegar for <p>Is there a way to put mathematical equations in a continuous way along the text in Impress?

https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/23000/how-can-i-put-mathematical-equations-inline-with-text-in-impress/?answer=35406#post-id-35406There is a little fund on https://freedomsponsors.org/core/issue/473/allow-inline-graphics-formulas-in-impress-and-draw to help the development of this feature.
If you are interested, please consider adding a few dollars to it, as it may speed up development.Fri, 13 Jun 2014 10:18:23 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/23000/how-can-i-put-mathematical-equations-inline-with-text-in-impress/?answer=35406#post-id-35406
