Robust, efficient equation numbering in MS Word 2016
April 29, 2018 6:02 PM Subscribe
I'm writing a doctoral thesis in mechanical engineering. I will have lots of equations to write in my paper which need to be labeled with numbers. Throughout the body of the paper I will have to cross-reference those equation numbers in discussion. I am currently using the built in functionality in Word but it is not tailored for equation numbering and includes some very cumbersome and finicky workarounds. How do people handle this efficiently in their science/engineering papers? Are there 3rd party products that will do this for me automatically and update the numbers automatically for both the equations and cross-references to them? I am willing to spend money on a solution if need be. The solution must work with MS Word 2016 and I also need the ability work on the same document on two different computers' installs of Word 2016. Any help is appreciated.
