Why do the two 'b's have different glyphs in the document below ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • You'll find below a screenshot from a Word 2010 document, where I typed two 'b's, both with the 26 pt Cambria Math font (both characters have bold font). The character on the left was typed using the text editor. The one on the right was obtained inside the Equation Editor. Why do they have different glyphs?

  • Hi

    I have tested in my machine, it is by design.

    There are still differences between the two letters:Math text and non-math text.

    You might select the equation go to Design>Tools>Normal text after you choose the option, they might look the same.
