How to numbering multiple equation in libre office math. Current implementation numbered equation in libre Office just give 2x1 table for each equation. This is not suitable for multiline equation. If i give one table for one part equation, there must be many space for multiline equation. I need multiline equation numbering like Latex style, so each line in multiline equation got same vertical space with other paragraph line. Make just 1 x 2 table for each equation make redundant of space.

I'm not sure exactly what your problem is here: you ask about numbering equations, but your main problem appears to be the vertical spacing of separate lines of a multi-line equation. I don't know what you mean by "like Latex style" in this context: do you want one equation number per multi-line equation or one per line?

There are various ways you can solve this, I think:

```
o Within the definition of your equation (in Math), use "newline" to move to a new line. You should see normal line spacing.
```
```
o Within the single table row for a numbered equation, you can create new lines. If you use a line break (Shift+Enter) you should see normal line spacing. If you use a paragraph break (Enter), you will indeed see extra spacing, but this is the default "below paragraph" spacing of the Table Contents paragraph style. You can reduce this - perhaps to zero - at right-click | Edit Paragraph Style... | Indents & Spacing | Spacing | Below paragraph.
```
```
Your (single) equation numbers should be centred within the multi-line range. If you want numbers for each line, you can space these similarly using line breaks or paragraph breaks; in this case you will have to insert the appropriate fields, most easily by copying and pasting existing ones.
```
I trust this helps.

PS: Your system clock is wrong by fourteen hours. You will want to correct this. My guess is that you are actually in time zone +0700 (perhaps in Indonesia?), whereas your system claims you are in -0700 (e.g. US west coast). Either that, or your message was time-travelling!
