    When i download powerpoint presentations from some of my proffessors websites the formulas dont show up instead i get a slide that looks like this

    If click on format picture and then click on recolor the image i get a screen that looks like this

    That shows the actual formula, but i cant figure out how to get the formula to show up in the slides. Ive played around with a bunch of options in the format image section but nothing has worked. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Did you try running an AutoUpdate to get the latest software drivers for Office/PPT?


    hmm... I did a quick search on the Microsoft Office Web site and found some Mac :Office user groups that may help you.

    You can search the word "equation" and see what you come up with;

    the particular user below suggested the same remedy, but he replied to someone who may have more insight.

    Either way, it may be handy to bookmark the page, just in case.
