In Microsoft Word, there are two ways to display equations; Inline and Display. An inline equation is in line with text (as the name suggests), so that equations and text can be mixed. A display equation appears on its own line and is automatically centred, like so:
These are three separate equations, but because they are set to display mode they all appear centred and on their own line. If their mode is changed to inline, they all appear on the same line and not centred instead:
My problem is that LibreOffice shows all equations using inline-mode, even if they are set to display-mode in the docx file. If I create the first example using display-mode equations Word, save it, and then open it in LibreOffice, the equations appear as if they are inline-mode:
Is there a setting which I can change to get display-mode equations to be on their own lines and centred, like they are in Word? Due to the sheer quantity of Word documents I have, I'd rather not modify the documents individually.
If not, is there an alternative word processor which displays the equations correctly?
