Equation editor

I'm wondering if you can adjust the 'font size' of equations or do they present as one size. I am finding it is displaying quite large compared to the text.

    Hi Sue,

    The Config Variable d2l.Tools.WYSIWYG.MathjaxScaling ( Org ) sets the default scaling for any equations that are rendered by MathJax - used by the WYSIWYG editor. Typically, equations are scaled slightly larger than surrounding text - the default value is 150.

    For example, setting this value to 100 will default the equation size/scale to same size of the surrounding text.
    You will need administrative privileges to make the Config Variable change. A change to this variable will apply to all current and future equations.

    Best to discuss the proposed change with your institutions Brightspace administrators.

    Hope that helps!
