Hello,

I would like to write something like:
a+b =
= d*f =
R

My problem is that the Math program is not happy with
a + b = newline
= d*f
- it shows a red question instead of entering a new line

The best I can do is:
a + b %= /newline
%=d*f
this one is on two lines, but there still remains the red question mark at the end of the first line.
Any suggestions, tricks?
Thank you
majsta

There are two think you can do.

1) place the equal signs in speech marks:

Code:
a+b "=" newline
"=" d*f "=" newline
R


2) insert something invisible on the empty sides of the equal signs, such as a pair of speech marks, or two curly brackets:

Code:
a+b = {} newline
{} = d*f = {} newline
R


or

Code:
a+b = "" newline
"" = d*f = "" newline
R


The problem you are having is that the equal sign takes two arguments: X equals Y. The red question mark indicates that one of the arguments is missing. In the first solution, you use the equal sign as a text element, and thus no arguments are required. In the second solution, you give OOo Math the missing element, but one that doesn't show up.
