Ifigenia stub This article is a stub. You can help Ifigenia by expanding it.

This help page may be useful to everyone who heavily writes formulas in MS Word documents. Special emphasis will be made on the formulas and matrices within the scope of Ifigenia. Please, note that the MS Word Equation's possibilities are much restricted, compared to TeX possibilities to render formulas.

MS Word Equation symbols and templates

Click the Equation Editor icon or choose to open it from the Insert menu, Object option. The Equation editor itself has several more important drop-down menus from where to set the font styles, font sizes and spacings of the various components of the inserted formulas.

The components of the formulas themselves can be

  • symbols to be inserted either from the keyboard, or from the virtual keyboard of the Equation Editor (sections 1.1 to 1.10), or
  • formatting commands , selected from the templates in the virtual keyboard (sections 1.11 to 1.19), as well as from the drop-down menus (section 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3).

Angle brackets
Ugly Equation-gn-transition-angle-brackets-1.png The "angle brackets" are typed from the keyboard: symbols < ("less than") and > ("greater than"). Too small and acute-angled.
Ugly Equation-gn-transition-angle-brackets-2.png The angle brackets are chosen from the Fence templates menu. Too large and obtuse-angled.
Beautiful Equation-gn-transition-angle-brackets-3.png The angle brackets are chosen from the Operator symbols menu. Right in size and shape. Best resembles the TeX output of the same thing.
GN index matrices
