In Word 2010, letters in equations are italicized by default. But after I formatted the document using the Format Painter, equations are not italicized.

Now I want to italicize all equations in the document. Is there a quick way to do so? Alternatively, how can I format-paints a paragraph without changing the format of the equations in the paragraph in the first place?

Try this:

  1. Click Find.
  2. Click More.
  3. Press Format and then Font.
  4. Choose Cambria Math (assuming this is the font used in your equations).
  5. Press Find In -> Main Document.
  6. You should now have all equations in your document highlighted.
  7. Close the dialog and apply the appropriate formatting.
