Word randomly rescales equations and other embedded objects
Sometimes in a Word document containing several equations, after closing and re-opening Word, the equations have been randomly re-scaled. 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.
Thanks for your feedback! We’re reviewing your suggestion.
I am using Word 2010 and MathType 6.9b and this random rescaling of the equations is extremely annoying. I keep fixing them, but they keep changing. Please fix this in Word and make my life much easier.
It took me several precious hours on re-typing my dissertation thesis. It contains more than 200 pages and 300 equations. Wish I have decided to use Latex...
Sorting this would be most helpful

Please fix that issue!
This is a tremendous problem in my Dissertation work. I've 150 pages + that are affected. Such a pain in the @#$ fixing this issue over and over and over ...
In one of my documents it contains more than 100 equations in Mathtype 6.9, every time when this MS.Word document open, MS. Word resizes some of these equations. Kindly remove the bug and issue an update for Office 2013.

In my experience, distortions are much larger than in the example above: 121x91% would be more typical.
