### How to use Math Variables amidst text in Writer?

Hi everyone,

I have been struggling to find a way of inserting small math objects (Inset>Object>Formula) in the middle of the text. I can do it, but a large space appears after and before the math object that ruins the document.

For example, when I present a new equation I have to explain in the text what the variables, and I want them to be the exact same format as they appear in the Equation box above. The problem is that they have a massive gap before and after the math object. How do I remove this gap?

Many thanks,
Zeca
