Impossible to change the size of the formula in wrtier.
In draw, the size is protected (size is checked in position and size).
When unchecked, size is automatically checked again.
What do you mean by "change the size of the formula" ? Please provide a step by step scenario to reproduce the problem.

Did you try to resize a formula in writer ? Type a formula, enter and then try to grab one size to resize : not possible.
In draw : Right clicking and uncheck size under protection in "Position and Size" does not do anything, it's checked again and again
A formula is not an image. The size of the formula is defined by the size of the used fonts : menu Format -> Font size.

In Draw/Impress you have to set the new size immediately after removing the check by entering new size values in the dialog. Don't forget to check "keep ratio". Such formula resizing is possible in Calc too.
Resizing is possible for other OLE-objects and I see no reason, why it should not be possible for Math-OLE. It is an artificial restriction that resizing is not possible in writer.
Caolan McNamara committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
Resolves: rhbz#1012353 fdo#48846 allow starmath objects to be resized
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
