This may be just something that I'm going to have to lose with the conversion from PC to Mac, but:
On the Windows version of Word 2011, when you click equation, the program immediately goes into equation mode and you can start typing the equation right there on the line. Once you're done, you just hit the right arrow key to exit. If you want to edit the equation, just click in it and the cursor will move inside it. It's incredibly convenient for someone who has to use equation mode every ten seconds to add an integral or something, like me.
On the Mac version, equation is a button that you press. A window comes up (it takes about five seconds to appear), and then you have to type your equation in the window and click X. If you want to edit the equation, click on it and the window will pop back up. It's very inconvenient and makes writing math documents take a lot longer.
Is there a way to get the Mac version to behave like the Windows version?
