Description arinya 2009-10-18 03:41:05 UTC
Platform: OpenOffice 3.1.1 (go-oo version) on Windows XP

  After inserting a formula in a writer document, we can press ESC twice to
continue to write in writer. Everything is OK. But I think the default frame
style of Formula is ugly, it sets the amount of space between left(right, top,
buttom) edge of the formula and text to 0.20cm. It's too wide. So I change them
all to 0.00cm. 
  Now, pressing ESC twice will cause the cursor located *before* the just
inputted formula. We have to use right arrow in the keyboard to move forward ---
an extra unnecessary step. 
This small improvement will benefit men of mathematics more.

MRU->OD: change the spacing in the wrap page of frame style "Formula". Now
insert a Formula object into Writer, leave it with 2 times ESC -> cursor is left
of object. It is correct when you leave the default spacing in the frame style.

@rainerbielefeld: you should place some text before starting your verification. 
So, the step is:
0. input "akldjfl"
1. Menu 'Insert -> object -> Formula' 
2. "a + b = c" 
3. <esc>
   formula input will be closed, control points will be shown
4. <esc>
   Caret appears in line behind formula
5. modify the formula style: set border width to 0cm
6. goto step 0
