I have numbered the equations on its right in my Word document and

they are aligned to the center when the equations have more than

one line. I would like to align the equation numbers to the last

line of the equation (or the bottom of the object) and wonder how I

can do so.

Thanks

The most reliable method is to use a two-column borderless table,

with the equations in the left (wide) column and the equation

numbers in the right (narrow) column. Select the right column, right

click it, select Cell Alignment, and choose the bottom right

alignment.

Thanks for the response.

I have created a particular formatting style to automatically number

the equations and align them horizontally and it's been very useful

other than for this stated issue. So I'm wondering if it's possible

to maintain this and just alter some formatting setting such that the

equation numbers on the right can be align to the bottom of the

equation object.

I don't think there's anything you can do in a style, but you can ask Design

Science (www.dessci.com or www.mathtype.com), the company that supplies the

Equation Editor to Microsoft. You should also look at their commercial

product MathType, which (among many other enhancements) can make its own

equation numbers.
