    Is there a way to change the color of the font in an equation using ppt 10 and Equation Editor 3.1?

    Thanks!

    Using color in equations in PowerPoint

    No, but MathType gives you that capability. You can even use more than one color in an equation, like you might want to do if you want to focus attention on part of an equation. Like this...

    Considering the quadratic formula, the quantity in red is called the discriminant:


    By evaluating the discriminant, we can determine the number of roots of a quadratic function.

    But you can't do that with Microsoft Equation 3.1.

    By PPT 10 do you mean 2010 or Version 10 (2002)

    In 2010, I was able to use Insert | Equation and change the color of just the radical.

    Yes, of course you can do that. That's not what the original question was though -- "mcoleman" asked specifically about using "Equation Editor 3.1", and you cannot change the color in EE3.1.
