Microsoft® Word 2010 Equation Editor
The Equation Editor was developed by an independent company named Design Science. But, Microsoft® found it so great that it decided to integrate it in the Microsoft® Office packages, starting with the 2007 version. It has been continuously developed in the latest versions, so you can be sure that the Equation Editor in Microsoft® Word 2010 is really the best math software available.

Before using the Equation Editor
The Equation Editor in Microsoft® Word 2010 comes with the Microsoft® Office package, but it is not installed as a standard. You will probably need to install it manually from the Microsoft® Office CD. This is easier than it sounds, and you should have your program installed in seconds. After that, you will have to customize the toolbar so you have the Equation Editor at an accessible place. Just left-click and drag it to your menu, bringing it in the proper place.
Once the Equation Editor is in place, you just need to open it by clicking the tab. You will gain access to all the basic math operations at a single place. If the Equation Box opens on top of your current work, just left-click and drag the solid strip across the box until it is out of the way. The Equation Editor in Microsoft® Word 2010 can be used to insert math symbols and templates for complicated calculations. You can insert any symbol you would like, starting with the classical < and > signs and going to the âˆ‘, âˆž, and âˆ symbols. Fraction templates might also be a hard task, but the Equation Editor eases the task for you. Once a template is inserted in the Equation Box, you will have to search for the flashing cursor. Type the information needed in the location and press the ‘Tab’ key on the keyword. If you want to exit the Equation Mode, just click anywhere else on the Equation Box.
Editing equation might prove a hard task, and it is even harder if you are not using shortcut keys. You should try to avoid mouse operations if you can, although you might find this harder at the beginning. The shortcut keys can be found in the Help Menu when the Equation Box is open. The most common symbols are ‘’, ‘(’, and ‘)’, which you can get from the keyboard also. The trick is to assign a shortcut key to the most used symbols, so you can insert them quickly into your document. Save your work and make several copies of the document as you may need to revert to them later.
