Default Equation Editor

The reason that it is not enabled is because the document that you have as
the active document is open in compatibilty mode. If you save it as a Word
2007 document, or create a new document in Word 2007, it will become
available.

Note however, that you can still use to Equation Editor 3.0 by selecting
Object from the Text section of the Insert Tab and then select Equation
Editor 3.0 as the type of object to be inserted.

Tnx Doug,

Do you know if it is possible to add an icon to the quick launch (or ribbon)
for the old equation editor (3.0)?

Jeff

You can install a macro that invokes the equation editor, and then set a Quick
Access Toolbar button to run the macro. Here's the macro:

Sub InsertOldEquation()
ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.AddOLEObject _
ClassType:="Equation.3", Range:=Selection.Range
End Sub
