Fix excel curve fit equation integration in word document in the speed grader


I frequently have students use the excel trendline feature to find the curve equation for a plot. I recently discovered that if a student copies and pastes their plot into Microsoft word and then submits it to canvas the equation doesn't show up in the speed grader. 

This same equation does show up if you download the file so it is defiantly actually there. Additionally it also shows up properly in excel directly. 

This is a very subtle error and something I missed for years....Which means I've been incorrectly grading my students work.

Though it can be worked around by having them save as a pdf or paste the plot as an image it is something that should be fairly easy to fix since it works in excel using speed grader and all other images/textboxes in the plot correctly appear.
