Thumbs up Answer: how to place numbers under limit (word 2007 equations)

  1. Open a new or existing Word document.
  2. Click on the "Insert" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  3. Click on the "Equation" button in the "Symbols" section of the ribbon.
  4. In the "Equation Tools" tab that appears, click on the "Limits" button in the "Structures" section.
  5. Click on the "Limit" option in the drop-down menu that appears.
  6. Type the expression you want to use for the limit, followed by the variable you are taking the limit with respect to, in the space provided.
  7. Click on the "Subscript" button in the "Structures" section of the ribbon.
  8. Type the number or expression you want to place under the limit in the space provided.

The number should now appear directly under the limit. If the number is not appearing in the correct position, you may need to adjust the spacing or formatting of the equation. You can do this by clicking on the equation and using the options in the "Equation Tools" tab to adjust the font size, spacing, and other formatting options.

Click in the equation, so that you can see its border. Click the arrow on
the right, and then click Professional. Click the arrow again, and then
click Change to Display (to place the equation on a line by itself).

Note that the equations you are copying from older Word files are Microsoft
Equation 3 objects. You can create these in Word 2007 too, if you want to:
On the Insert tab, click Insert | Object | Object. Locate Microsoft Equation
3.0 in the list.

Default how to place numbers under limit (word 2007 equations)

Hi Nelraheb,

I'm not clear on the steps you're following when you say copy from the 'old version' to the 'new version'.

Are you using Word's {EQ} Field, or the Word/Design Science Equations Editor 3.0 from prior versions or the new to Word 2007
Math/Equation editor?

If from your description you are trying to insert a Limit matrix and want it to appear in a manner similar to the example shown on
the 'Limit and Log' button in the Word 2007 equation editor, then you can start with the either
Insert=Symbols=Equation=Insert New Equation
or from the Ribbon or type Alt=
to insert a new, empty equation control.

Then from the Ribbon, select
Equation Tools=Design=Structures=Limit and Log,
insert a lim (Limit) matrix and type in that matrix.

Or you can produce, by typing, in an Equation control, produce the limit example shown on the Ribbon buttom for
Equation Tools=Design=Structures=Limit and Log by

1. Using Alt= to insert a new equation control then
2. Typing in the equation control the following:

lim\below(n\rightarrow\infty)

When you press space after the closing paren it should convert the equation typed in to the 'professional' equation format.

In the above example you can use an underscore character in place of
\below
if you prefer. Be sure to enclose in parentheses what you want to appear below the lim function. The the parens you type in the
above example won't appear in the final result.

Or, you can, rather than type the Math Autocorrect shorthand, choose to use the
Equation Tools=Symbols
dialog to enter the symbols for 'right arrow' and 'infinity' (or others) using the mouse.

You can find a listing of the predefined Math AutoCorrect sequences via the AutoCorrect dialog
Alt, T, A
or in Word Help under 'Math AutoCorrect'

Left out one small bit in the previous reply (I've gotta stop doing these at 3 in the morning g).

If you use lim underscore lim_(your expression here) then it will create the lim matrix similar to the one found in the ribbon
under 'Limit and log'. If you use lim\below(your expression here) then it does not continue in a matrix to the right after
converting).
