Aha! I had tried the stack command before, but it didn't work. I think
I may have left out the #s.

That line didn't work. Not only did I not get the mathematical + and -,
the stack also didn't work. But the + for my font works pretty good,
and for the - I just use U-2212.

I finally found the place to set the point size. The only problem is
that I have keep resetting it for each new formula. It even forgets
that I don't want italic. And if I close the document and reopen it
Writer even loses the font name. There must be a style setting for this
somewhere that works, but the Formula style in the styles palette
doesn't offer much, and when I make changes Writer just ignores them.

This looks like it might be lots easier than messing with formulas, but
I don't have a Symbols toolbar. When I installed LO I thought I
installed absolutely everything, but maybe I missed something.

Thanks a lot for your help. I'm making progress!
