insert object formula.
X=Pint -3

I have P_int so that the int can become subscript but once I have i , it transform into special character.
nt character of int are OK, only i character causes issue.

I want to have subscript.
OpenOffice 4.2.8.2 on Ubuntu

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

In my version of Open Office, int is an operator which tells the Math component that an integral is to be created. There are several ways to prevent Math from interpreting int as the integral operator. I prefer the %int syntax, which tells Math to use the %int symbol from the catalog. Since there is none, Math uses int as the symbol's value.
