Formula Editor Option Not Available

Postby GodfatherPTS » Wed Dec 30, 2009 6:43 pm

Likely a simple solution but my formula option is not available on OOo 3.1.1.

I go to Insert>Object>formula but the 'formula' is gray and unavailable. Why is my version not allowing the use of this function? If i reinstall the program will it be available?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Are you inserting the formula in a text document? In the main text and not in a text box? Not sure if you can insert one in a frame but I think we can.

Else, try to reset your OOo user profile but don't transfer your personal data during the welcome process (if you had 2.x before), configuration files from the former version might corrupt the new profile.

Thanks to add '[Solved]' at beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
