Blackboard Math Equation Editor Issue

Article ID: 673
Last updated: 19 Oct, 2021

The Math Editor in Blackboard is displaying formulas with symbols overlapping each other and making the formulas hard to read. A fix for this issue is currently being developed for release by Blackboard.  In the meantime CIT recommends the following work around:

  1. Create a new MathType formula using a font size of 16px or lower and save.


  1. Open a currently corrupted MathType formula, adjust the Font Size in the MathType editor to 16px or lower and save.

This will fix the issue for new MathType formulas created going forward. For Math formulas that are still appearing as corrupting, please enter the MathType editor and resubmit to correct. No font size change is needed.
