In LibreOffice 3.3 Math Guide (0700MG33-MathGuide3.3.odt), on p.
14, the following is written:
Equation numbering is one of LibreOffice Math's best hidden
features. The steps are simple, but obscure:
1. Start a new line.
2. Type *fn* and then press *F3*.
When I typed fn and pressed F3, nothing happened. In the document
the fn I typed appeared, not the desired result. I do not know
whether my F3 key did not work.
I think what you may be doing (understandably) is to try this in a
Math document - and I cannot see how it works there. Instead, it
works as described in a text (Writer) document. Indeed, I notice
that the version of the Math Guide for LibreOffice version 3.5 has
corrected "Equation numbering is one of LibreOffice Math's best
hidden features" to read "Equation numbering is one of Writer's
best hidden features".
In a text document, in a new paragraph or after a space, type "fn"
and press F3. A table with a single row of two columns appears,
containing a dummy equation and the required number (as a
field). You need only to double-click the equation to open the
Math window at the bottom of the window, where you can remove the
dummy equation's definition and replace it with your own.
The typing of fn and the pressing of F3 yields an onscreen message:
AutoText for Shortcut " not found.
Something seems to be missing on my computer. Perhaps I need to
re-install LibreOffice 3.6.4, which I am using?
No, I suspect that you are simply not following the advice
given. *Don't* start a Math document. *Don't* use Insert | Object >
| Formula. Instead, forget about Math for the moment! In a text
(Writer) document, type "fn" in a new paragraph and press F3. You
will see the dummy numbered equation. Now double-click the equation:
this will automatically open the Math sub-window and you can replace
the dummy equation's definition by your own.
I trust this helps.
