For work-related reasons I recently switched from LaTeX to Word. I heavily use the MathType equations editor (in-line; not the pop-up editor) in Office for Mac 2011 14.1.0 on Mac OSX 10.8.2 Mountain Lion.
I read online that the built-in MathType editor can apparently understand simple and even more sophisticated LaTeX commands. Here is an example of a list of commands that ought to work: http://iun.edu/~mathiho/useful/word07shortcuts.pdf
The simplest commands, however, do not work for me. That is, I cannot use the hotkeys for superscript (^), subscript (_), and fraction (/) (i.e. most commands on page 1 of the PDF above don't work). Strangely, however, many other commands from pages 2-6 work!
Is this a known bug? How can I fix this problem? Thank you!
