Equations in Microsoft Word - best practice

  1. Dec 3, 2012 #1

    I'm using Word 2007 and I'm asking if anyone can give me the best way to use the equation feature, along with equation labels, in a way that looks the best.

    I need the equation to be large (not limited to a single line, i.e. "display" mode), but I also need it to be centred (or left-justified with an offset) and the equation label needs to be right-justified on the same line, preferably 1-2cm right of the main text border so they are easy to locate.

    I have everything in place apart from the "display" mode, and as soon as I type anything after the equation object it converts back to linear/professional. I need display mode to correctly show tall integrals and min/max conditions.

    Any ideas? (please don't say learn LaTeX!)
