Hi
Regina is right : the best way to deal with formulas is to write them
directly in writer.
either you use the window edition
(Insert > Object > Formula) and you click on the buttons
or you know a little bit of OOMath code and you write directly this code
for example : R = U over I or I = sqrt { P over R}
(don't forget spaces around key words over ; sqrt ; ...)
then you select your code
then Insert > Object > Formula on your code => instantaneous
transformation
Press Escape two times to make your cursor coming back to your text.
when you get used to direct writing, you"ll never use another method for
simple formulas :-)
codes can be learnt by observing inserted ones when you use buttons
You can even create your own shortcut for inserting formula,.
(Tools > Customize > tab Keyboard and choose the Ctrl Key you wish >
Modify > Ok)
it will allow you to be still faster.
