A box created using Word’s formula typesetting commands does not display or print correctly. The problem occurs with a full box or with a box set so only the top and/or bottom edges appear.
The box formula does not display correctly if the boxed text in the formula contains a right-aligned tab set further than 2.5 inches to the right of the start of the formula.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Word for the Macintosh. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
Change the right-aligned tab to a left-aligned tab and adjust it as needed to produce the desired appearance.
Use an alternate technique, such as underlines, tables, or borders, to achieve the same visual effect offered by the box formula.
