MathType provides close
integration with Microsoft Word, letting you
insert equations by clicking a button on the
toolbar. You can also perform other tasks such
as numbering equations, formatting all the
equations in your document, and much more.

Word is a word processor that's
part of the Microsoft Office suite of
applications. Word supports a widespread
standard for linking and embedding objects
called OLE (Object Linking and Embedding). Since
MathType equations are natively OLE objects,
this means that MathType and Word work well
together.

## With MathType and Word, you can:

**Add an equation to Word:**
With Word, you can use MathType
toolbar, menu, or Ribbon tab
commands to insert an equation
at the insertion point or in a
separate paragraph.
Alternatively, you can
drag-and-drop or copy-and-paste
equations and expressions from
MathType directly into Word.
**Edit an equation in Word**:
Since OLE remembers that
MathType was used to create the
equation, double-clicking it
opens the equation in MathType
for editing. After you have
finished your changes, closing
the window will update the
equation in Word.
**Insert handwritten math
into Word:** If you're using
Windows 7, easily insert
handwritten math with the
Windows Math Input Panel and a
tablet PC, a digitizing tablet,
or a mouse.
**Number and reference
equations:** Numbers and
references automatically update
if you add a new equation.
**Change the font and size
of all equations in a document:**
Change the font and size of all
equations in a document -- very
convenient when you need the
equations to match the style of
the rest of the document.
**Create good-looking,
accessible math web pages:**
MathType's Publish to MathPage
command makes it very easy to
publish technical documents to
the web.
**Type LaTeX directly into
Word** and convert to a
MathType equation with a click.
**Browse all equations and
equation numbers in a document:**
If you need to check your work,
use MathType's browse feature in
Microsoft Word to visit all the
equations.
**Export all equations in a
document to TeX/LaTeX, MathML,
EPS, GIF, or WMF:** If you
need to use equation images from
Word in another application or
web page, convert them all to
images with a single command.
