Just a simple question. Can you take the formula from LO math and put it in LO writer (the mathematically correct version). I need to do this for a paper for school. I would like to create the formula in math, make it look right, then put it in my paper. I have to explain the formulas and why I used them. That's why I want to use writer for the text. Can you convert the formula to a picture to insert into the document?

You can insert LibreOffice Math file directly into Writer, no need to convert formula to picture. Once you're done working in Math, save the .odf file and open Writer document you want to insert formula into. Go to Insert -> Object -> OLE Object, select "Create from file" then click on Search, locate and open the .odf file you saved before. The Math formula is inserted in Writer document.
