buggy OMML equation editor RRS feed

  • Question

  • Word users who write complicated math formulas are not satisfied with the way the OMML equation editor displays inline equations. See this thread.

    The issue has been present in all Word versions since 2007. Can anyone comment on this?

  • Hello,

    As you have probably noticed this thread is for developers (not users). Moreover, if you want to submit bugs or feature requests on Microsoft products you would better use http://connect.microsoft.com/ .

  • Eugene,

    I've connected to connect.microsoft.com but currently I can participate only in Office Document Themes Designer program. I see no way for submitting a bug on any of Office 2013 components.

  • George, I think you should check whether this is a public site. I think it may be private...

  • George, hello.

    I try to send bug report on http://connect.microsoft.com/, but if I find Microsoft Office on Product Directory page in "Non feedback" section, and Office directory record show as (secure and only view accepted action):

    Microsoft Office                 View      Secure       04.04.2006 

    And if direct go to https://connect.microsoft.com/office/Feedback url I recive "Page Not Found" error.

    What should I do for get access to Microsoft Office feedback program?

  • Hi George

    Connect is a public site; the Office part of it is not. That's there for participants in the private Office beta programs. Office, itself, has no presence on Connect and there is no way for the general public to post bugs or "wishes". Currently, only "staff", such as yourself, have the capability of posting bugs to the MS Office databases.

  • So, it seems I still chose the right forum for posting this issue of OMML equation editor ;-)

    Whoever has the capability of posting bugs on MS Office please add the one explained in this thread.

    It's time to fix this issue that has been present since OMML equation editor was introduced in Word 2007. Even LibreOffice Writer can do it right.

  • Hi rpr

    <<So, it seems I still chose the right forum for posting this issue of OMML equation editor>>

    Unfortunately, no, I'm afraid. The MSDN forums concentrate on programming issues and the people here - including staff - specialize in those areas. You need someone with access to information in the end-user area, which would be either the "Communities" or TechNet. I'd say your best chances would be TechNet:
