    I have a dual monitor setup. (Windows XP, Office 2003) When I use the Equation Editor in the secondary monitor and click on any of the icons (say to insert a fraction), the options always show up in the primary window. If I use it in the primary window, they appear inside the program as they should. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Ronny,

    Looks like some more of MS excellent programming.
    I tried this with Word open on my 2nd screen...the Equation Toolbar shows up on screen 1. If I drag it to screen 2 the minute I release the mouse it disappears!

    Thank you MS!

    You might try setting Equation Editor to open in a separate window. To do that, follow the steps in Tip 3 here: http://www.dessci.com/en/products/ee....htm#open_mode
