Equation Editor fuckupedness
So I did some experimenting. Because, it seemed that just these two sets of equations that I was trying to enter just weren't showing up. When I'd save the equation, it would just show up as a blank box of the appropriate size. When I double-clicked on it to edit it, it would be there in the Equation Editor window, but it's like, in the Word document, it had its text white or something. And this was for 2 out of the 10 equations, and just those 2. No matter where in the document I put them. So I took the equation, changed one character, and it was fine. Something really bizarre is going on, and I have no idea why. So, I was able to just put two of the lines of equations (each bit was three lines of equations) in Equation Editor, and then last line just in regular text, since it doesn't have anything that requires Equation Editor. Someone is going to be cursing me down the line, I'm sure, but I'm just stumped as to why it wasn't working.

This sounds like you're not supposed to avoid Equation Editor like the plague, as we do here.
Will it really become a problem down the line, if it's something that you can just type from the regular keyboard?

I don't know and I don't care. It's going out of house. We're not doing any formatting on this, since it's all going to get dumped into the ir software for making these tests in the e-book, so it's all probably going to have to be remade anyway. The guy I'm doing this for has said we can do whatever we want for the art, sketches, CAD stuff, Word art, whatever, just as long as they know what it is. So, since the art is all being remade, I'm sure the equations and such will be remade too.
