# Learn@UW - Equation Created by Equation Editor Cannot Be Edited

If you created an equation using the Graphical Equation editor in a document, you may not be able to edit the equation.

This apparently works for Content topics but not for News items, Discussion posts, Glossary items, and possibly other non-Content tools that use a slightly different HTML editor than the Content tool.

In tools other than Content, you see just a single small square where the equation is expected to be in the 'Edit Equation' interface. Then, you have to Cancel out to avoid losing the original equation.

This is a known issue.
