Hi, I'm trying to write the following formula (selecting Insert->Object->Formula):

N = A \Bigg( {B} over {C} \Bigg) \Bigg( {D} over {E} \Bigg)^{-1}

but four inverted question marks appears on the top. I know they mean that expression is incomplete. Why do they appear? this expression doesn't look incomplete to me!

I am using OOoLatex version 4.0.0-beta-2

Thank you in advance

No problem with TexMaths



though you probably mean:

Code:
N = A \Bigg( {{B} \over {C}} \Bigg) \Bigg( {{D} \over {E}} \Bigg)^{-1}

Well, I cut and pasted the formulas that you wrote down and they both don't work for me. I solved my problem using 'equation' instead, that is even simpler, being standard latex.
But the error with 'Formula' isn't solved.

Insert->Object->Formula doesn't use LaTeX. The equivalent formula there is:

Code:
N = A left(B over C right)left(D over E right)^-1
