Equations: Add the ability to insert equations
In the traditional version of Word, we are able to write equations. Can that ability be added here? It is especially useful for students that are in the fields of science, engineering, and mathematics that are working on group projects.

Please add Equation editor in Office 365 online (Word + Powerpoint and others). I use Linux and cannot get Office to work properly on my desktop so I really hope to use the online version but I regularly need to write and edit equations. It'd be very helpful! As of now, I am thinking of migrating to something more Linux friendly and might unsubscribe from this  which I don't want because it takes sometime to relearn stuff. This is one of the basic features that I am very comfortable using with my old Windows machine and really should be in the online version as well. Otherwise, this is driving people away, especially the ones in quantitative fields (like in universities)  that's a lot of customers, Microsoft!

Bring equations to Word Online because my computer isn't compatible to download Microsoft Office!

Equation Editor 3.0 has been removed from Word due to security reasons. Yet, that means that old equations written in that way are now not editable (without using costly third party tools such as mathtype). As I have a lot of documents containing such equations, this is a major issue. Is there any way to fix this problem?

One of the reasons why we use Google Docs for projects.

Most of my students at university all work on Windows, but the university lab compututers are running Ubuntu. I thought of sharing a document with the class to edit and play around the equation editor, but saw it's not there. Teaching would also require being able to edit equations.
Collaboration (as mentioned previously) would also require the ability to edit equations.

I have to use the online editor, since my computer won't allow me to download the original. After quite a bit of searching, I found that the equation editor wouldn't show up, even after download after download. Please add the equation editor.

This request's been posted since August 2015... I'll keep hoping Microsoft will listen though :T

Thank you.

As a math teacher, equations are my life. Agreed, it would be great to have this capability! Google equation editor is horrible. Having something as friendly as Word's equation editor would be great.

Add the equation editor to office online.

In the software version of Word and other Microsoft Office product you are able to add equations to your document using the equation editor. I don't understand why this product has been out for several years now but does not have feature parity yet. If you want to bill this as a replacement for the yearly office suite at least add the basic functionality that already exists in the software version. Google Docs can do it, why cant you?

Please add the equation editor, that is one of many reasons why Microsoft is more user friendly than any application competitor. Google already has this feature on the cloud applications, please, add this feature and all the other desktop features to online, it would make me a more efficient user. As a person developing curriculum and using the desktop equation tool would allow me to stay in the cloud instead of jumping between the desktop and cloud versions. I would hate to see Microsoft lose users to Google because Office desktop features are not available in the cloud.
