Entering a formula

There are three ways to enter a formula:

  • Select a symbol from the Selection window.

  • Right-click on the equation editor and select the symbol from the context menu.

  • Type markup in the equation editor.

The context menu and the Selection window insert the markup corresponding to a symbol. Incidentally, this provides a convenient way to learn the OOoMath markup.


Click on the document body to exit the formula editor.

Double-click on a formula to enter the formula editor again.
