    Hi,

    Based on my knowledge, the Microsoft Equation Editor 3.0 isn't supported in Office 2016 and Visio 2016. To insert equation in Visio, it is suggested to insert equation in Word 2016 with build-in equation feature, then copy and paste text to Visio 2016 as a workaround.


    Best Regards,

  • I continue to be disappointed that Visio does not have proper equation support. I use Visio to generate block diagrams for digital signal processing systems. Visio is an excellent tool for that in most respects, but lack of equation support is pretty close to a deal breaker for me.
