# [icon-users] Saving a maths formula to word

Greetings! I reported last week on a problem I had on saving a maths formula from TWriter to WORD, and how I solved it by saving to RTF, and loading the RTF document into a blank TWriter document, when the formula was saved correctly. I have now discovered that the problem is something to do with line spacing. The original TWriter doc, in 12pt Trinity, was to go to a journal for publication. It contained a single formula. The journal requires wide line spacing and I set it, in TWriter, with "Document body" selected to "Exactly 18 points" via FORMAT. I took a copy of the original document this evening, set line spacing to "Exactly 18 points" and copied to WORD. Failure again - no formula. Changed line spacing to "At least 18 points" and it saved to WORD correctly. Then I saved to RTF and loaded this into a blank TWriter, the line spacing of document body reverted to "Auto". With this line spacing saving to WORD got the equation correct. This seems to explain why saving to RTF sorted it out. The formula had just a "t" on the LHS and a fraction, with square roots in both the numerator and denominator, on the RHS. Is this problem some sort of bug, or am I doing something wrongly?
