Re: embedding Mathematica equations in MS Word part 2


Hi Mike,

I cannot understand what you exactly want to do. But, anyway, I suppose that
you are not aware of probably the best way to copy a Mathematica equation into a
Word document, which is:

    1) Drag and Select the part of equation in the notebook.
    2) Push the right button and the pop-up menu will display, where you
select "Copy As -- Metafile".
    3) In the Word file, select "Edit -- Paste Special -- Extended Meta
File"

Note that simple copy by "Ctrl V" or "Edit -- Paste" does not work well.
By the way, why don't you make your notebook files directly into pdf files,
instead of Word to PDF?

Regards,
DongGook Park
