I read a similar question on the Google Docs Help forums, but if I copy an equation that contains a symbol without using an image (such as the ∈ symbol), the symbol goes away in the presentation. Is there a way I can create equations in a presentation and/or get an equation that I made in a document out and put it into a presentation without losing any formatting and without using an image?
There does not seem to be a way to do this. I have tried
I assume these ways work pre-Google's new layout.
And only fonts (not symbols such as omega) are recognized by the presentation when transferring.
There is a lot of JS/CSS/HTML magic going on in there
As seen above, the symbols differ.
I am not sure why it isn't priority for them as an equation editor has been requested for a while
The ugly workaround would be to download as a .doc re-upload to Google Docs, and let all equations be converted to images now you can share the web clipboard.
