Native Office Equations (OMML)

Top  Previous  Next

Microsoft Office products store their own equations using a specialized "language" called Office Mathematical Markup Language (OMML).  When targeting Office products, the equation tools OMML commands to the clipboard which can then be pasted directly into the Office products on both WIndows and Mac machines (requires Windows Word 2007 or later, Mac Word 2011 or later).


Once you have pasted an equation into Office, it is just as much a Office equation as one you created using Office's own equation editor.  The equation tool no longer has any responsibility for what is displayed.
