Entering a Measurement in the Equation Editor

The Equation Editor uses a separate system of measurement than what you may have defined in Word. By default, the Equation Editor works with measurements in points for some settings and percentages of normal for others. (The term percentage of normal simply means that the Equation Editor has some internal value that it believes is "normal" for the setting. The measurement you enter is considered a percentage of that internal value.) You can enter measurements using different units by appending any of the abbreviations shown here:

Unit Abbreviation
Inches in
Centimeters cm
Millimeters mm
Points pt
Picas pi
Percentages of normal %
