Hello all,

I need help with this topic:

I have to translate a document in word, the file format is *.doc, and in some sentences there are mathematical equations written with a special application, whose name is MathType.

The matter is that when I generate the target translation, apears a lot of merge type identifications field, such as:




and in the source file it is visible

MACROBUTTON MTEditEquation-Section2 (and other, hidden)

the mathematical equations are seen as OLE objects as

EMBED Equation.DSMT4

But the principal matter is that the merge functions doesn´t work in the target file [Alt+F7].

Any suggestion or help will be appreciated.
