Description nicolasg 2004-09-29 11:37:31 UTC
Simple MathML files, like the most simple ones of the MathML test suite 
( ) are not loaded in the formula editor but 
it seems as Web View of OOo-Writer, even if the files are renamed with a .mml 
( 1.9.54) 
Have a nice day!

TL->BH: This is a request for enhancement since currently we can basically only
read the MathML we have written while saving.
Please take over. Thanks!

The files are not opened in Math module and not imported via Tools > Import Formula because they do not start with an <?xml instruction.

I like to see, that such MathML fragments are imported the same as full MathML files. Such feature is also needed to import formulas from Websites which use MathJax.
Comment 4 Regina Henschel 2015-06-14 13:16:39 UTC
I have made the detection method less restrict. You should be able to use such *.mml files, when you first start Math and then use Tools > Import Formula. 

The result might not be correct in some cases. But please keep in mind, that Apache OpenOffice only supports a subset of the MathML elements and attributes.

You can test the changes in a developer version from To not overwrite you current version use an administrative installation. I've you need help with that, please ask on mailing list or forum.
