# Import formula

This command opens a dialog for importing a formula.

The **Insert** dialog is set up like the Open dialog under **File**. Use the **Insert** dialog to load, edit and display a formula saved as a file in the **Commands** window.

You can import MathML files created by other applications as well. The MathML source must have a `math`

element with an `xmlns`

attribute with value "http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML". The languages MathML and StarMath are not fully compatible, therefore you should revise the import result. For details about the language MathML see its specification.

Choose **Tools - Import Formula**

# Import MathML from Clipboard

This command transforms MathML clipboard content to StarMath and inserts it at the current cursor position.

If the transformation fails, nothing is inserted.

Choose **Tools - Import MathML from Clipboard**

This command handles only MathML content. If you have copied a LibreOffice Math formula to clipboard, insert it using the command Paste under **Edit**.
