I am writing a report with Writer that needs some inline math formulas. I created a custom frame style for the formulas that has no spacing around the formula. It works fine, but the problem is that as soon as I close my document and re-open it, all the formulas are shifted down, as if they were vertically aligned on the bottom of the lines they're on instead of being aligned on the center of the lines. This is a big problem for me. I don't know if I missed something, or if this is a bug (if so, I'll have to use LaTeX, and I hoped not to for this report)


edit : forgot to tell that this is on LibreOffice

Just found this : It seems that unchecking the checkbox "Math baseline alignment" and rechecking it solves the problem for me. But I note that the bug's status is REOPENED, so it must not be completely corrected. They don't mention my problem though

I have another question : can you select all formulas in a document ? Is there a keyboard shortcut for this ? I could not find it. I also tried without success to use the navigator (F5) to do to this
