comment How to fix missing equations in Word 2007 when printing/converting to PDF?
Oh, my bad, only now did I see that @Димитър provided the same solution in an edit yesterday. I've missed that earlier.

@pipitas, I think you've encouraged me to keep looking and not to let it go unsolved. By some lucky coincidence I found a topic on the Adobe Forums where one of the hints was helpful enough in resolving this. So, I will indeed unaccept your answer as suggested. :-)

I doubt that in cases like this you can find a specific solution other than by accident. Knowing it's a unique configuration issue is good enough for me. Probably reinstalling all from scratch would (could?) help. If you're feeling uneasy about this, you may rephrase your answer to "can't reproduce, works by me, try repairing your system". ;-) Which is a valid hint by the way. If I happen to pinpoint the underlying cause somehow (doubtful, but nothing is impossible), I will post it here and move the acceptance mark. :-)

Unfortunately the fonts are available, so this should not be a problem. I'm afraid this is one of those hard to reproduce configuration specific issues. Thank you for all your help on this. I will mark this answer as accepted, though I haven't found a real solution yet. Nevertheless, you've helped me confirm that this is a single system issue. At least for the time being, I can switch to some other station for final printing until I find the underlying cause. Once again thanks for the input.

I'm still trying to pinpoint what could be causing this. Unfortunately, I don't have access to a newer Adobe Acrobat version. So testing this path is not possible at the moment despite being the most promising way.

Thanks, it is probable that Acrobat 8.0 has some issues. But it's the first time I have some problems with it on Word 2007. I've added some additional files. As you can see on the faulty workstation the built-in exporter does have similar issues. On my netbook I've managed to "save as PDF" with all equations visible, but they seem to get converted to lower quality graphics (not selectable in the generated PDF). The Distiller gives better results in general, but in this case the non-rendering issue makes it unacceptable.

comment how to debug epicly slow wifi but fast lan
And another thing - you mention "and it still sometimes happens". Do you mean normally it's OK or are you getting wireless problems most of the time?

Just recently tested NETGEAR WNR3500L. Works nice with DD-WRT and other alternative firmwares. Check out myopenrouter.com

comment Should I put my operating system or my working files on the faster hard drive?
Are both drives similar in size? Cause otherwise this could be a practical factor to consider too.
