How do I number my equations?
Displayed equations in Writer documents can be numbered using a predefined AutoText:
Type fn at the beginning of a paragraph and press F3. This will insert an AutoText containing a dummy formula and a sequence number. Now doubleclick the formula to edit it.
If you want to number the equations by chapter you should
- Doubleclick on one of the equation numbers.
- In the listbox 'Level' choose the chapter level you want to number by.
- In the textbox 'Separator' type a character to separate the chapter number from the formula number.
If you want to modify the AutoText you should use the dialogue Edit-AutoText. You will find this AutoText in the group Standard.
