I have a Word Document with some text and Equation Editor equations that needs to be pasted into AutoCAD. AutoCAD doesn't support Equation Editor (or LaTex) objects in a MTEXT field.

Is there a way to convert an Equation Editor object back to plain text, or do these need to be retyped?


Copy the equation container and paste it into Notepad... the container is removed and the equation is then converted into a linear plain text format.
