Questions about the use of formulas, insertion content, etc

Hello:
I am using docs version 7.0.I encountered some problems during use and sought solutions.

① onlyoffice word Do word files support Latex/MathType formulas? how to use?

  1. Copy the formula in the locally opened Microsoft Word file to the editor, and it will automatically become an image [1], and it cannot be displayed correctly!
  2. When copying the formula from the onlyoffice word editor into Microsoft Word, you will get the result as shown in image[2]!
  3. The standard Latex formula (eg: $\sqrt[n]{x}$) will result in a dotted rectangle [3]!

Expect formulas to be non-destructively copyable and editable between Microsoft Word files and onlyoffice word editors!

② How to insert rich text content with original style (for example: from makedowan format) at the specified cursor, instead of using plugins and macros (reason: writing plugins requires a lot of code work, and the user’s learning and use costs increase).

③ Now that the A.docx file is opened, the content of the B.docx file needs to be spliced to the specified location of the A file. After querying the document, no suitable help is found. How can I achieve this purpose?

looking forward to your Reply!

Hello @uncle
As for your requests.

Copy the formula in the locally opened Microsoft Word file to the editor, and it will automatically become an image [1], and it cannot be displayed correctly!

When copying the formula from the onlyoffice word editor into Microsoft Word, you will get the result as shown in image[2]!

The standard Latex formula (eg: $\sqrt[n]{x}$) will result in a dotted rectangle [3]

As for p.1, we know about this issue (internal number - 29867). We are working on it. As for p.2-3, please provide us with examples of files where issues are reproducible.

② How to insert rich text content with original style (for example: from makedowan format) at the specified cursor, instead of using plugins and macros (reason: writing plugins requires a lot of code work, and the user’s learning and use costs increase).

We don’t have ready-to-go solution for this request, but I think you can achieve it with custom plugin where content controls are implemented.

③ Now that the A.docx file is opened, the content of the B.docx file needs to be spliced to the specified location of the A file. After querying the document, no suitable help is found. How can I achieve this purpose?

It can be implemented via content controls: ONLYOFFICE Api Documentation - Plugin examples

If I misunderstood your requests, please clarify them.

Thanks for your answer!

But I have a new problem: the time parameter(lastsave and history.changes.created) of the callback interface is 8 hours different from the time zone (GMT+8) it is in. And the time zone configuration has been corrected in the centos 8 system, but there is still a time difference, what should I do?

Please provide us with details about your installation. Did you use docker or package installation?

Sorry for the wait. The installation package method used (refer to this installation tutorial).

Hello @uncle
Sorry for the late reply. We rechecked the situation. ‘created’ and ‘lastsave’ parameters always use UTC timezone. It isn’t related to server time.

Thanks Reply!
I need to change it to the correct time zone time (GMT+8), what should I do?

Sorry, but nothing can be done here. These parameters use UTC only.
