Default How do you add Math equations into Microsoft Powerpoint?

I tried using the built in equation editor and it ends up bigger than the other fonts, not to mention the equation goes over other texts.

When I tried copying and pasting from Microsoft Word, Powerpoint will only import/show the text, not the equations. How do I fix this? My presentation needs to be done by today.

From within the Equation Editor:

See link: http://office.microsoft.com/en...spx?pid=CL100626991033

You can modify the font, font size, position (for example, subscript or superscript), or format (normal, bold, or italic) of characters or symbols by selecting them and then choosing commands from the Style and Size menus.

The problem is the font size you give it only applies to what it looks like in the Equation Editor. Once you get exit the equation editor, the equation looks totally different (much larger in my case) and when I go to edit it it takes me back to the Equation Editor, which shows it as how you saw it before in the equation editor. This is frustrating.

Sure-fire WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) method:

1. Take a screenshot of the equation (PrntScrn key)
2. Paste it into Powerpoint.
3. Crop it as needed (Picture Tools / Format tab in Powerpoint 2007)
