MathType is a powerful interactive equation
editor for Windows and Macintosh that lets you create mathematical notation
for word processing, web pages, desktop publishing, presentations,
elearning, and for TeX, LaTeX, and MathML documents.
Entering Math by
Hand: Enter equations as easily as you
would write math with paper and pencil! This
feature uses the built-in handwriting
recognition in Windows 7 and later.
Editing with Automatic Formatting: Create equations quickly by choosing
templates from MathType's palettes and
typing into their empty slots. MathType
applies mathematical spacing rules
automatically as you type.
Shortcuts: Save time using keyboard
shortcuts. MathType has customizable keyboard shortcuts for virtually
every symbol, template, and command.
Type TeX or
you already know the TeX typesetting
language, you can enter equations directly
into MathType or Microsoft Word documents. TeX editing can be mixed with
point-and-click editing so you get the best
of both worlds.
You can even paste in equations from
existing TeX documents.
If you created your equation in another
application or found one on a website, why
take the time to create it by hand again?
Simply copy-and-paste it directly into
MathType, and it is ready to edit or use in
in the Toolbar: Drag frequently used equations and expressions
to the MathType toolbar so they can be inserted later with just a click or a keystroke.
Office 2013 and Office 365: MathType 6.9 is fully compatible with Office 2013 and Office 365 installed on Windows 7 and 8 computers.
Office 2010, 2007, 2003, and XP: MathType 6.9 is fully compatible.
Office Web Apps, Office Mobile, and Office RT: MathType equations cannot be edited in these Office versions but equations created in other versions of Office will display and print.
2013, 2010, & 2007
Ribbon Tab in Word and PowerPoint: MathType takes full advantage of Office's Ribbon User Interface making it
easier than ever to do equation operations
in documents and presentations. New equation
numbering and browse features work with all
Word equation types.
2003 and XP (2002) — MathType
Toolbar and Menu in Word and PowerPoint: MathType adds
a toolbar and menu to Microsoft Word and
PowerPoint, allowing quick access to
features and powerful commands to do equation numbering, produce great-looking math
web pages, presentations, and much more.
Find Symbols: MathType's Insert Symbol dialog allows you to explore the available symbols and
insert them with a click or keystroke.
Save expressions in the toolbar:
Microsoft Office 2013, 2010 & 2007 — MathType
Ribbon Tab in Word and PowerPoint:
Color: Use color to highlight part of an equation
your audience's attention on just the
portions you want. Show
what changed in each step of a multi-step
procedure and make those equations really
come to life.
MathType has hundreds more symbols and
templates than Equation Editor. Besides our
Euclid math fonts,
you can also make use of the 1000s of math symbols in fonts already on
your computer, as well as other math fonts
you can download from the Internet.
Add color to spice up a presentation:
Work with MathML and LaTeX:
Work in standard math notation:
LaTeX and MathML are computer
languages for representing mathematical
LaTeX is used by
many mathematicians but has a steep learning
curve and its abundance of braces and keywords make
typing it extremely tedious and error-prone.
Most people find it much easier to work
standard math notation in MathType.
MathML was created in 1998
by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and
defines math in HTML5, EPUB3, DAISY, DITA, NLM, and many other publishing
standards. It is not intended to be typed by
humans but created and edited with tools
Copy as MathML or LaTeX:
Complex mathematical equations can
be entered easily in MathType and then
copied to the clipboard as LaTeX or MathML
to be pasted into applications and websites
that use those languages.
Paste MathML or LaTeX into
MathType: Many websites contain
equations expressed in LaTeX or MathML and
can be pasted directly into MathType for use
in your own work or to convert them to a
different format (eg, LaTeX to MathML).
