    Is there any way to support MS Word equations directly?

    Fyard47 Community Member

      I use the equation editor in MS Word regularly, and it makes it a PITA to import my word documents into InDesign, since none of the equations transfer over (it's just blank space in InDesign).

       

      Yes, I can do a workaround by making a PDF from Word, but when you have 20-100 equations per document, in different places, it makes it take longer to use InDesign than it would to hire a scribe and have him write it all out by hand using a quill and inkpot.

       

       

      Is there any way to get InDesign to support word documents properly and directly in this regard?  I just want to be able to import it and have it look correct, right out of the box.  I don't care if the equations are editable or not in InDesign - I just want them to be there, look correct, and in proper resolution.

       

      Is this possible?  Perhaps in CS6?  (I'm using 5.5)
