Hi, Been recommended to download libre to help write some formulas in math. When I convert pdf I get a pdf I don't want, see attached image (ie I just want to see preview window rather than loads of code written over it). Can anyone help solve this?

Also attached my code if there is an issue with that. C:\fakepath\Question 2 Part A.odf

Math is not intended to be used as standalone application, but as a complement to add mathematical formulae as objects to other LibreOffice documents.

Prepare the main text in Writer and insert individual Math objects, one for each formula, with Insert → Object → Formula.

Using standalone Math is fine, for PDF one needs to use File -> Export as PDF .... That it gives unexpected results with this particular document seems to be a bug. I suggest to submit a bugreport and attach the test case document.
