Is there a word processor for Linux, specifically Ubuntu, which has excellent support for Word equations in existing docx documents?

LibreOffice supports viewing and editing equations, but the editing process seems a bit complicated. You can't just type in them; clicking them to edit them opens a new window in which you edit your equation. Ideally I'd like to be able to edit them in-line.

I also like Word's 'LaTeX shortcuts' feature, where LaTeX symbol names such as \theta are automatically replaced with actual Unicode symbols.

Are there any Word alternatives for Linux with all of these features?

  • Replacing things like \theta automatically can be done in Libre Office using Format -> AutoCorrect :) – ByteHamster Feb 1 '18 at 23:44
