For teachers and students:
- If you don't have a LATEX or Mathtype software. Here is a little tip.
Open a blank/new Microsoft Word document, separate to the file you are working on.
Insert new equation into a blank document. Write what you want.

Copy the equation in a program called Wordpad (should be installed on Windows computers).
or even better paste in Excel (right click select Paste Special and select Picture)

This will convert it automatically to a picture, with the correct scaling for fractions/exponentials etc.
(make sure to do this for components rather than text, add text separately).
Copy to your other Word document, and there you are a better scaled fraction for example.
(I would recommend doing this for integrals as normally in Word to render them an appropriate size requires them to be on a line by themselves, which is problematic for dot-point style questions)

\par adds a new paragraph useful if you don't want indenting, make sure you put it so the line doesn't autorun.

\mathbb{J} or any other letter adds a double stroke letter

##### -insert title here-
How does one prevent automated indentation? It really destroys the elegance of the typesetting.

Any idea on how to type latex code in the Bored of Studies forum?

Most of my work is done by copying and pasting it from an External site and then uploading via photobucket.

$\frac{3}{7} #### davidgoes4wce ##### Well-Known Member$Hello world, how are you this fine morning?$#### InteGrand ##### Well-Known Member$\frac{3}{7}
Enclose in tex tags, i.e. [ tex] [ /tex]

(Without any spaces in those brackets; I just put spaces there so the tags are visible.)

Text must also be bounded by dollar signs (that is all text must be enclosed with a dollar sign at the beginning and the end). Also, I would recommend that if you want to see how someone produced the text they have written, just click on the reply button and you can clearly see what they have written.

How would you import LaTeX code into Microsoft Word?
