 Posted: Tue Jan 17, 2012 3:22 am    Post subject: How do I remove inverted question mark in formula? 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}

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
