I have been encountering some real issues when trying to enter text equations using the typesetting templates.
As soon as I type into a typesetting box, I lose the cursor. I am unable to click a typesetting box to set focus to it and cannot tell which box has focus as multiple boxes are often highlighted.
I have no such problems using the equation editor in MS Word 2013. Is there any way to use the MS equation editor in Mathematica 9?
