Can someone please tell me how to break up a formula accross multiple lines to get this:

(a +
b) = c

I've tried "(a + newline b) = c"
but I just get:

(a + ?b) = c

Also, I need to be able to break before or after operators such as 'and' and 'join'.

eg.
(a = b) ^
(c = d)

I don't do formulas but literally fumbling around with the info at Help > Index tab > Formula parts/ Manually Aligning I managed to get your first item in the formula editor with:
\(a+{} newline {}" " b\)=?

When was in a text doc and did Insert > Object > Formula I got it on two lines but couldn't get it vertically aligned on the left.
