Default Keeping an Equation Together in One Line

have a look at photo and DOC attached. I can not keep an equation together, if it goes to end of line.
Who has an idea?

You asked me to look at this. I never use equations. Sorry.

  • Start your equation on a new line? (Shift+Enter)
  • Look at the size of the font for the equation?
  • Consider using a landscape section?

Charles
There are so many equations in my document, so I need a general solution for all of them. Your suggestions seem not to be general and changing size of fonts does not cause same result.
What I need is a general solution (like using 'Non-Optional Break' for normal texts) for gathering an equation together in one line.

I don't know why it behaves that way. These are just suggested workarounds rather than straightforward fixes.

Back in the good old days before the Equation Editor, you could create equations with an Eq field and they stuck together. You could always use that which still works.

Another alternative is to encapsulate the equation inside something that doesn't naturally break across lines. have you tried putting your complete equation inside something else that doesn't break. For instance you can insert your equation inside a superscript entry box using the equation editor and that equation will be smaller but will not break at the end of a line. Interestingly, putting the same equation inside the non-superscript box will not stop it line breaking so you need to put a space in there to hide that box.

Sub and superscripts do not work on equations and using subscripts and superscripts of equation dialogue box, it creates a blank character which is extra, useless and has to be removed. But it is not removed. have a look at photo:
