Why Upgrade?

To get the latest features, bug fixes, and compatibility maintenance changes for new versions of Microsoft Office and other applications

MathType is a mature product that has been around for 25 years, and we continually add new features. Also, upgrading to the latest version of MathType ensures maximum compatibility with applications you use with MathType and with your computer's system software. If you already use MathType, it is important that you upgrade to the latest version in order to take advantage of these enhancements.
 

MathType 6.7 New Features:

 

Virtually all MathType features are enhanced in each major release. Here are some major new features in MathType 6.7. To learn more about these features, visit our Full Feature List.

  • Mac OS Sierra (Version 10.12) Support: MathType now supports Mac OS X Tiger (10.4.9) or later, including Mac OS Sierra (version 10.12).
  • Apple iWork Support: Apple has picked MathType as its equation editor. If MathType is installed, a MathType Equation item appears on the Insert menu in all three iWork applications: Pages, Keynote, and Numbers, including the versions released in October 2013 and updated in September 2016.
  • Microsoft Office 2011 Support: MathType brings back its full functionality, including equation numbering, within Word 2011. MathType is also compatible with Office 2008 but not all features are available. Please see So what's the story with MathType and Microsoft Office 2008? for details. Please see FAQ #17 for an explanation of compatibility with Office 2016 for Mac.
  • Type TeX/LaTeX directly into a Microsoft Word document: If you already know the TeX typesetting language, you can enter equations quickly using that language in either the MathType editing window or directly into a Word document using the new TeX Toggle command.
  • Copy spreadsheet cells and word processing tables into MathType as matrices: MathType lets you copy and paste a range of cells in Excel or Numbers, or a table in Word or Pages, and paste it into the equation you are working on as a matrix. This saves you time by avoiding typing and mistakes due to missing decimal points or dropped digits.
  • Compatibility with 800+ applications and websites: Google Presentations, Desire2Learn, Stack Exchange, and 114+ other applications and websites join Microsoft Office, Apple Pages, Keynote, Numbers Adobe InDesign, and hundreds of others that work with MathType! Check out Works With... to see if your applications are compatible.

MathType 6.0 New Features:

Virtually all MathType features are enhanced in each major release. Here are some major new features in MathType 6.0.

  • Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) Support: MathType now supports Mac OS X versions 10.3.9 or newer, including version 10.6.3 also known as Snow Leopard.
  • Intel Mac Support: MathType is now a Universal application (also known as a Universal Binary) which means that it runs fast on both Intel and PowerPC Macs.
  • Apple iWork '09 Support: Apple has picked MathType as its equation editor. If MathType is installed, a MathType Equation item appears on the Insert menu in all three iWork applications: Pages, Keynote, and Numbers.
  • Microsoft Office 2008 Support: MathType is compatible with Office 2008 but not all features are available. Please see our Full Feature List for details.
  • Define Equations using TeX/LaTeX: If you already know the TeX typesetting language, you can enter equations quickly using MathType's TeX input mode. TeX editing can be mixed with point-and-click editing so you get the best of both worlds. You can also copy equations from existing TeX documents.
  • Copy and Author Equations from Wikipedia: Wikipedia, the popular online encyclopedia, contains 1000s of pages with mathematical equations. Once you do your research on Wikipedia, you can copy relevant equations for use in your own work. You can also copy MathType equations into Wikipedia's page editor in order to create new pages or edit existing ones.
  • Equation Browsing: The new equation browsing feature allows you to visit every equation and/or equation number and reference in your Word document or PowerPoint presentation.
  • MathML Clipboard Support: MathType can now copy equations to the Windows clipboard using the new MathML Clipboard Format that is supported by a growing number of mathematical and scientific applications.
  • New, Improved Online Help: We have combined MathType's user manual and help into a single comprehensive help system, featuring full text search and an extensive index, and works with Apple Help. It contains tutorials that teach you how to use MathType most efficiently as well as contextual help for its commands and dialogs.

MathType 6.0 equations are compatible with MathType 5 equations so you can continue to work with others even if they haven't upgraded yet. MathType 6 will also retain any changes you've made in your current version of MathType to keyboard shortcuts, toolbars, preferences, etc.

MathType 5 New Features:

 

Just in case you haven't updated your copy of MathType in a while, here are the new features we introduced in MathType 5 and are included with MathType 6:

  • Color: You can color all or part of an equation to match the color scheme of your PowerPoint presentation, or to draw your students' attention to a particular step in a derivation.
  • Insert Equation in Word: MathType installs a toolbar into Microsoft Word, giving you the ability to insert mathematical notation inline or centered, with or without equation numbers, with just a click. No need to use Word's clunky "Insert Object" dialog.
  • MathType Commands in Word: The MathType toolbar in Microsoft Word also gives quick access to commands to renumber equations on the fly, insert equation references, or convert a Word document to a web page, all while working in Word.
  • Export Equations: Export all equations in a Word document as GIF or EPS image files for use with web page construction or desktop publishing applications such as Adobe InDesign and QuarkXPress.
  • Insert Symbol Dialog: Lets you explore the many math symbols present in fonts you already have on your computer, fonts you can purchase, or fonts you download for free. You can insert them into your equations with a click or, if you plan to use the symbol often, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to it or drag it to the toolbar.
  • Save Word documents as math-savvy web pages: MathType's new MathPage™ feature allows you to save a web page where, unlike Word's built-in "Save as Web Page" command, the equations actually look good. Choose to make your equation a GIF image or MathML, the W3C's XML standard for math.
  • Customizable Keyboard Shortcuts: Work faster by assigning keystroke combinations to your favorite symbols and templates.
  • Unlimited Undo/Redo: Everyone makes mistakes. Fix them faster by undoing your equation edits you started, if necessary.
  • MathML 2.0 Support: MathType's MathML translators have been updated to the latest MathML Specification from the W3C.
