Keyboard and/or toolbar shortcut to insert specific OLE object [Writer]

Hi,

Is there a way to add a keyboard shortcut or toolbar button to insert a specific OLE object? I.e., I've just installed MathType on my system, and I created a keyboard shortcut in LO Writer to "Insert" > "OLE Object"; that's as specific as I could get. That takes me to the OLE dialogue, then I have to choose "Further Objects" > "MathType 6.0 Equation". Is there any way to get straight to the "MathType 6.0 Equation" without going through all the extra keystrokes?

Aside: Once the object is inserted, it by default is set to word wrap. I want the equations on their own lines; can I change the default word wrap behavior?

Thanks!

(I added MathType because my LO Math equations keep on disappearing link. Anyone else experiencing this?)
