Equation Editor in Word 2007

Hi! I am having some trouble with the Equation Editor in Word 2007. I have

recently upgraded to Office 2007. Usually my quations are displayed and

print normally, however when I insert a sketch from Geometer's Sketchpad (Key

Curriculum Press) into a document with equations in it, the problem starts.

The equations look perfectly normal in my document, but whenever I print the

document anywhere there was an equation it is just a white gap between the

text. For example, it would look like this:

Write the slope of the line in the format y = mx + b for each line below.

And it would print like this when I have a sketch from Geometer's Sketchpad

in the document:

Write the slope of the line in the format for each line below.

I have had no problems in the previous versions of office with equation

editor and Geometer's Sketchpad in the same document. The equations use to

always print out fine. It is only in Office 2007. Can anyone help me?

Thanks so much!

    • Word 2007 has a completely new equation editor, so I am not too

      surprised it is running into problems with data from 2rd party software.

      Does it actually insert it as a 2007 equation or is it something else?

      Have you contacted Key Curriculum Press?

    • Well, I'm pretty sure that is inserts it as a 2007 Equation because I am

      opening and saving the file in the new .docx format (not in compatibility

      mode). No, I have not contacted Key Curriculum Press because I didn't feel

      it was their problem. My Geometer's Sketchpad has always worked with Word

      throughout all of its version updates, it is the update to Microsoft Word

      that is causing my problem. I don't really see what Key Curriculum Press

      could do other than saying to use something other than Word, which I do not

      want to do. I know there has to be some way for it to work because it worked

      in all other versions of Word, and 2007 should be the best one yet and

      include all of the old features plus more. Any help or suggestions would be

      greatly appriciated!

      Thanks!

    • Word used to use a reduced version of a third party product as its

      equation editor. Word 2007 however ships with a built-in equation editor

      which is fundamentally different.

      It is not uncommon that third party products might have to adjust their

      programs to work correctly with the newest version of Word. I encourage

      you to contact them about this.

      At the same time, please find my email address on my website and send

      me, if you can, a sample document that illustrates the problem.

      Thanks,

    • There was one earlier report in the application.errors newsgroup that

      sounded similar to this:

      [url]http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.word.application.errors/browse_thread/thread/21439f695100d329/3d077a8633ca3653?lnk=st&q=&rnum=2&hl=en#3d077a8633 ca3653[/url]

      It didn't get a resolution, and I'm not able to reproduce the problem.
