For Immediate Release
MathType 6 for Macintosh is Now Shipping
for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and Intel Mac; compatible with Microsoft Office 2008
LONG BEACH, Calif. — August 19, 2008 —
Design Science today announced the release of MathType™ 6 for Macintosh, a major
upgrade that adds support for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and Intel Macs, and Microsoft Office 2008. New features include TeX/LaTeX input, the ability to copy
equations to and from Wikipedia, and more. MathType is the full-featured,
professional version of the Equation Editor in Microsoft Office and many other
products, and is used by math and science educators, engineers, research
scientists, students and publishing professionals to include mathematical
notation in printed documents, presentations and web pages.
MathType 6 for Macintosh enables the user to copy
equations from existing TeX documents, and scientists who already know the TeX
typesetting language can now type expressions directly into MathType. "The new
LaTeX-to-MathType feature is marvelous. Instead of having to retype all my
equations again to use in a PowerPoint presentation, I now can just cut and
paste. This is the best software purchase I have made in a long time," said
Alfonso Limon, Chief Scientist, A&A Consulting Ca.
MathType 6 for Macintosh now works with Wikipedia, the popular
online encyclopedia that contains thousands of pages with mathematical
equations. Users can do research on Wikipedia and copy relevant equations for
use in their own work. MathType equations can also be copied into Wikipedia's
page editor to create new pages, or edit existing ones. With MathType 6 for Mac
you can copy or drag equations from any web page that contains accessible math
directly into MathType.
MathType 6 for Macintosh is a Universal application
that runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macintosh computers, and has
all the features of MathType 6 for Windows.
MathType is US $57 for academic users, $97 for
non-academic users; upgrades are US $37 for academic users, $49 for non-academic
users. Anyone can download MathType from the Design Science website and try it
free for 30 days.
