Using Microsoft Equation Editor

Issue/Question

How do I create equations or edit equations in existing documents using the Equation Editor?

Environment

  • Microsoft Office 2016 (and later)

Cause

Microsoft has discontinued the Equation Editor feature in the latest version of Microsoft Office. It is no longer possible to edit these equations without additional software.

Resolution

Microsoft has recommended MathType as replacement for desktop Equation Editor users. MathType requires an additional license after the trial period expires. Due to our licensing and support agreements, WKU cannot provide or support older versions of Microsoft Office software.
