Word 2007 Equations do not appear when saved as PDF RRS feed

  • Question

  • There does not seem to be an answer to this anywhere.  When I use equation editor to create equations and then save the docx document as a PDF, most of the equation text has disappeared.  I have tried all combinations of PDF save as settings to no avail.  This is exceedingly frustrating as I had to switch from Lyx where equations are handled beautifully to Word, where they seem to be handled reasonably until this problem popped up.

  • The Microsoft component produces PDF/A, which is why I was going in that direction.  It looks as though PrimoPDF does this too.  Thanks for the suggestion!

  • I had a similar problem . I use word 2007 with Windows 7 . After writing a docx file containing some equations and trying to convert the file to pdf or printing the file , some equations disappeared.  I discovered that these equations were written while word writing direction was " right to left " . when I changed these equations to " left to right direction " , every thing becomes ok.
