Word randomly rescales equations and other embedded objects
Sometimes in a Word document containing several equations, after closing and reopening Word, the equations have been randomly rescaled. The proportions aren't off by more than a few percent, but it's noticeable. An example would be height & width of 97x101%, when of course the original was 100x100%. To be clear, this isn't with a specific version of WinWord, but it is specific to equations created MS Equation 3.0 and MathType  IOW, equation objects. We've seen this happen with other objects too, primarily embedded Excel charts, so it does seem like it's Word causing the issue, and not Equation Editor, MathType, nor Excel or any other app.

This really needs to be fixed. As I'm writing this, it's been 9 months since put under review.

Please please fix it or make a proper equation editor supporting Times New Roman for scientific work, because not everybody is allowed to use LaTeX...

pls fix this problem, it's very troublesome for me to type the equations all over again especially for long and complicated equations. This has happened more than once when I'm writing my paper

This issue is extremely irritating given that I write very technical documents that require many embedded mathematical symbols and equations. Every time I reopen a document they are all rescaled (some larger, some smaller, some scaled to give different aspect ratios, etc.). Is there any way that I can avoid this?

Please fix it asap.

This also happens with Office 2016 and Office 2013 which I use at home. Very frustrating to have to redo equations over and over.
