The Formula Textbox doesnt resize and its really annoying... Also when i want to update the Formula, that the Window Size adjust, the update button is grayed out. Sometimes when i tried it, the whole program crushed

I think for user experience this would be a very nice feature.

Good Job keep it going

Formula inserted to Impress canvas is an OLE object. 

You can not and never have been able to drag a handle of OLE object's frame to resize it.

You edit via the sm Formula editor.  Once edit is complete the OLE object will resize in response to the edit.

While editing in the sm Formula edit mode, wrap the formula in a "size ## { }" replacing the # with integers.
