I do not think that this is possible with MS Equation Editor 3.0. But it is possible with MathType (a commercial software product, Link).

I made a LaTeX introduction in German - here are the relevant slides:

  • Thanks Manuel, I've used MathType in the past. Today received one MS document where symbols and formule are entered using MS Equation Editor, So checking if similar output is possible to get directly from equation editor 3.0

    I see. Maybe you can use MathType to open the document and then convert the equations. There's a 30 days trial version available. Commented Aug 21, 2013 at 13:29
  • Thanks Manuel ; i've installed trial version and using same.
