Hello, I think what you probably require is AlignmentMarker, esc am esc (or \[AlignmentMarker] See here ("Math Typsetting Options and Tweaking", ) http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/guide/MathTypesettingOptionsAndTweaking.html I do it something like this (I am using Mathematica 7 on a Mac) which I learned from an old Mathgroup post (I cannot locate the original source) 1. From within the text cell, open an inline cell (Insert-> Typesetting-> Start Inline Cell on a Mac with Mathematica 7) 2. Type in the equations putting an alignment marker before each equals sign (ie "esc am esc =" ..) 3. Close inline cell 4. Select the text WITHIN THE INLINE CELL, and choose TextAlignment -> OnAlignmentMarker from the Format menu. 5 Click anywhere outside the inline cell. 6 Thats it! You end up with something like this (should cut-and-paste) Cell[TextData[{ "This is a text cell\n", Cell[BoxData[{ FormBox[ RowBox[{ RowBox[{"a", "+", "b", "+", "c", "+", "d"}], "\[AlignmentMarker]", "=", "50"}], TraditionalForm], "\[IndentingNewLine]", FormBox[ RowBox[{"a", "\[AlignmentMarker]", "=", "50"}], TraditionalForm]}], TextAlignment->AlignmentMarker, FormatType->"TraditionalForm"] }], "Text", CellChangeTimes->{{3.5250825627116632`*^9, 3.525082650843917*^9}}] I also have this from somewhere (again not originally mine) which might be of use: eqns = {a == b + c + d + e, a + b == c + d + e, a + b + c == d + e, a + b + c + d == e}; Grid[List /@ eqns, Alignment -> "=="] On Thu, Sep 15, 2011 at 9:39 AM, Gregory Lypny <gregory.lypny at videotron.ca>wrote: > Hello everyone, > > How can align my typeset equations on the equal signs?
