I have a latex command for an equation looks like

$p(\mathscr{P}\mid\tilde{N})=p(\tilde{N}\mid \mathscr{P})$

I want to copy the equation to word 2013. I tried some tools (mathjax, LaTeX2Word-Equation, mathtype...) but the result is not so good comparison with latex output. Could you suggest to me some good tool to copy from latex command to word file. Thank all.

This is my output of three tools when I copy in word 2013

enter image description here


I chose this \mathscr{P} and \tilde{N} by mouse in the Word generated menu (on the top of screen); do you think this is better?

By the way, why don't you think the mathjax output to be better? it seems to have inserted \left and \right into parentheses automatcally.

enter image description here

You seem to be very concerned with parenthesis height(?) If so, type () first, and simply paste (and do not edit inside) whatever inside which you have typed elsewhere. For example, you type \tilde{N} on another line, and type p(), and paste \tilde{N} inside (). This is because (it seems) MS Word automatically tries insert \left and \right; though not every time, the feature seem to be buggy.

  • Yes. It looks good. I think mathjax is not good because the mathjax's ouput has tilde is so far comparison with latex. But how you make it in word? Your result is in word, right. – Jame Nov 28 '16 at 12:03
  • my previous explaination unclear, please see I have edited. – Violapterin Nov 28 '16 at 12:05
  • So, your image result is from word or latex? I tried but the distance between tilde and N look far – Jame Nov 28 '16 at 12:07
  • The screenshot is from MS word, mine is for Mac, though; don't know whether they make difference. – Violapterin Nov 28 '16 at 12:11
  • Ok. Let explain my experiment to obtain the result. I copy the script $p(\mathscr{P}\mid\tilde{N})=p(\tilde{N}\mid \mathscr{P})$ in to mathjax.org site and then copy the text in the typying and choose the LatextoWord-Equation then paste to word. Is it correct step? – Jame Nov 28 '16 at 12:39
