MathType adding extra space between lines after inserting inline formula in MS Word.

I have got a question regarding the MathType equation editor software in MS Word. After adding an inline formula (variable with subscript), the MathType adds some extra space between the line in which the formula is and the following line (see Fig. 1). When doing the same thing with MS Equation editor, no extra space is added (see Fig. 2). I don't like the extra space MathType adds but I don't want to go back to using MS Equation editor.
Fig. 1: θj inserted using MathType.

Fig. 2: θj inserted using MS Equation editor.

How to prevent MathType adding the extra space between the lines?

Quite frankly, I cannot see what in the world you are on about. What extra space? I do not see it.

Why would anyone use MathType with Word? I do use use MathType to generate TeX coding for direct use in web posting.

For publishing, the full version of MathType has many options for formatting.

In the example at the top the spacing between lines 2 and 3 is larger than the spacing between lines 1 and 2.

Re: MathType adding extra space between lines after inserting inline formula in MS Wo

I need to use ms word since I am writing an article into a scientific journal and they require the articles to be send in ms word format. The extra space between the lines is not possible to overlook (see Fig. 1 and compare it with Fig. 2). It looks ugly when the distance between lines is not equal.
So this is what I want:
- use mathtype to insert inline equations but avoiding adding extra space between lines, which is not necessary since ms equation editor can do it without it (I presume that mathtype is more advanced than ms eq. and so it should be able to do it as well).

I am still not sure that I see that.

I suggest that may be a function of Word and not MathType. It may have to do with a 'linefeed' code??
