Design tab, makes it possible for you to enter non-math text in the middle of your
equation. Simply click the equation and then click Normal Text before typing the
information you want to add.
Setting Equation Options
There are a number of settings being used behind the scenes to help you construct your
equations as easily as possible. You can display and change those settings by displaying and
updating the choices in the Equation Options dialog box. To display the dialog box (see
Figure 18-6), click the dialog launcher in the lower-right corner of the Tools group on the
Equation Tools Design tab.
You can use the options in the Equation Options dialog box to instruct Word which font
you want to use for your equations as well as how you want the equations formatted on
the page. You can also set AutoCorrect options (more about that in a minute) as well as set
the default values you want to be applied to all equations you create. Click the Defaults
button to set these values as the default; Word will prompt you to confirm that you really
want to apply these settings because all documents that use the Normal.dotx template will
be affected by the change. After you’re done entering your settings, click OK to return to
the document page.
