Equations Everywhere and Anywhere™
Work with math in 800+ applications and websites!
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 LaTeX:
If 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.
Copy and Paste:
If you created a MathType equation for use 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.
Supports Microsoft Office:

focus your audience's attention on just the
portions you want. Show what changed in each

those equations really come to life.
MathType has hundreds more symbols and
templates than Equation Editor. Besides our
exclusive Euclid™ math fonts, you can also
make use of the 1000s of math symbols in
fonts already on your computer, as well as

Work with MathML and LaTeX:
Work in standard math notation:
LaTeX and MathML are computer
languages for representing mathematical
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
directly with standard math
notation in MathType.
was created in 1998 by the
World Wide Web Consortium
(W3C) and defines math in
HTML5, EPUB3, DAISY, DITA,
NLM/JATS, and many other
publishing standards. It is
not intended to be typed by
humans but created and
edited with tools like
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).
