In Word 2016, when I insert an equation, it shows it to me correctly.

However, when I save the document and re-open it, the font gets automatically changed to Hindi fonts. Each time I change the font and save the document and then re-open it, it keeps going back to Hindi.

My default office language is set to English.

I have tried uninstalling the Hindi fonts but to no avail. When I uninstall one font, it just picks up another Hindi font.

I have also tried reinstalling Word itself, but that too didn't help.

Please guide what should I do to change the default equation language. I have become somewhat frustrated with this problem since the last many months.

    Create a blank document and insert an equation. Will the issue still occur? Generally, there is only one font supported in equations so far: Cambria Math. You can right-click an equation and select Font to have a check. Do you mean that your Asian Text Font is a kind of Hindi fonts? What's your editing language in Word? You can click File > Options > Language to have a check. In addition, you can also try to reset user options and registry settings in Word Oct 21, 2019 at 9:04
