This howto describes the measures needed to have equations with a black or dark background in OpenOffice Impress. The default font size is also wrong by default.

- Create a new equation, which opens the equation editor
- First of all write
`color white size 28`

which sets the equation colour to white and resizes the equation. - Write your equation code inside curly brackets, so that
these properties are set on the whole equation and not just the
first character,
`color white size 28 { ... }`

- Since the equation editor uses white background even if your
document background is black, you can't see anything white. A
tip is that you insert a single letter after the keywork
`white`

while you edit your equations.
