For various reasons, I have to rewrite part of my thesis in MS Word and Mathtype, after I wrote it in LaTeX. I used some notation in LaTeX from the amsmath package, which I'm finding very hard to reproduce satisfactorily in Mathtype.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Take a look at the attached image. On the left there is a_{\mathring{i}jk}, which is typeset perfectly by LaTeX. The middle and right show the best alternatives I can find in Mathtype. The middle one just has a dot, which is very hard to see when printed and is actually different notation to what I want. The right one has the subscripts shifted down, which looks really ugly, especially when presented alongside with terms with no rings over subscripts (when it is really obvious).

Does anyone know if there is a way to reproduce this notation correctly in Mathtype? I'm using Mathtype 6, which is partially compatible with LaTeX equations. I was hoping there was a way to import LaTeX packages, but I guess that's overly optimistic? ...or maybe there's another way to draw the symbol?

Thanks for any help,

Regards,

Chris
