    No workaround that I'm aware of yet.

    We want to let you know that the Word team has heard your feedback and are planning to offer a way to turn off the checking for individual rules in the right click menu  in Word 2016. If you’re an Office 365 subscriber, you should see this change in a future update.

    Also, for individual cases where you’d like to turn of flagging of a particular issue, you can always click on “Ignore Once” in the right click menu.

    As always, thanks for your feedback. We appreciate it!

    Tables do not always have to be inline. This refers specifically to when tables are used as a floating object (perhaps more accurately a framed object?). In this case text does wrap around the table and the table can be dragged to different locations on the page, or specifically set to a specific border or position. So maybe there is no "anchor" because it is not fixed to the text in the same way as an image, but knowing where the insertion point is in the text is just as important and serves the same purpose as the anchor: I need to see and control where that insertion point is in the text to better control the page the table is on and the white space of text when text-wrapping doesn't happen as expected. The workaround is to cut the table, and paste it in the text somewhere else (even though the table doesn't get inserted where it is pasted because it is not in-line), then fix the floating position again, and repeat as necessary till desired results are achieved.

    Here's an example of something that works well, by capturing full expressions. It still couldn't distinguish between Z_p1 and Z+p or Z/p:

    Find what:
    (?)<

    Please implement the find and search described here:
    https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/murrays/2007/03/15/math-findreplace-and-rich-text-searches/

    With use from above I can now do the following as better partial work arounds:
    Using wildcards helps to find more complex equations in find and replace. To find something like x_a, then "(?x?a?)" will allow "\1" to find and replace it correctly without destroying formatting as long as it is the full thing not x_a1.
    Another note as to why just typing x?a in doesn't work is that in math equations different characters are used. Using the alt-x trick I find that x and a have codes 0078 and 0061, but in equations they are characters with codes 1D465 and 1D44E. Copy and paste into the advanced find changes them to standard characters. The highlight, find, then advanced find pulls them in correctly (most of the time). Typing in the character codes lets alt-x convert them to the right ones in the find or replace boxes (but it is hard to build up the right terms this way).

    Automatic equation numbering is almost there. To make it work completely, inserting cross references needs to have the choice "number only" or "field only" rather than "label and number". Right now, the "#" in the equation will do the correct flush right numbering without a table, and auto numbering can be done by using a sequence field (or caption) inside the equation after the "#", but there's no good way to reference the equation. Using the cross-reference dialogue would insert the whole equation and number using insert "label and number", or bookmarks have to be manually added to each equation.
