Ugly equation:
Left side: one usage of equation builder. Increase font size.
Right side: use another instance of equation builder.

In this example, 30px on the left, 18px on the right. The formula writer tried to keep the box (container for formula) the same height as the rest of the line height; shrink to fit.

  • Thank you. It seems it not always work changing font for an existing equation. – Fish Monitor Jun 10 '16 at 11:05

    If you make two equations it should work out visually for you. It really is one equation, but it's in two parts. The equation becomes an Object when you use the equation builder. The Object is shrunk down to fit the height of the Line and that's why the equation gets really small. So use two parts if only one side is a fraction. – ejbytes Jun 11 '16 at 1:30

Select the whole equation box, and change font size normally

    Doesn't this change the font size for the entire equation? That's probably not what the OP wants. – Vidar S. Ramdal Oct 2 '17 at 14:31
  • No really it does – Omar Elrefaei Oct 3 '17 at 14:41
  • You have to change the font size for the whole line that the equation is in. If you have text other than the equation in the same line, and try to only increase the font size for the equation, it won't work – kakhkAtion Feb 12 at 23:32
  • Worked for me. The font of the whole equation is changed, but it looks that, now the font in the fraction matches the rest of the text. – Darkov May 20 at 11:10
