Say for example I have A = (B) + C, I can't work out how to remove the parentheses/brackets around B without also deleting B. There's no way to select the brackets individually, as far as I can tell...


That behavior of Equation Editor is by design, and there is no way to delete B without deleting the parentheses. The program evaluates the parentheses as a whole object: (◻)

What you can do is (especially when the content in the parenthesis are longer) to double-click on the content to select it, and to use CTRL+X to cut it to be pasted later.


Found another "solution" (which I don't like much more than copy/paste): switch to Line mode, where you can remove parentheses.


You'll need to cut and paste B outside the brackets, and then delete the brackets.
