Just joined! Trying to get to grips with Math. How do I move the equation box to the correct position. I watched a video which converted the box to a metafile but I could not find the menus to do this. Help please!

Have you tried to anchor the box as a character?

When dealing with Math I find it much easier to use Writer and inserting Formula objects.
This can be done using; Insert -> Object -> Formula.

To make it easier I have the button added to my Insert toolbar, which can be achieved by; Tools -> Customize... -> Toolbars - Toolbar "Insert" - Select checkbox of Formula (looks like sqrt a).
