MathType works well with PageMaker using cut and paste, OLE, and imported
files. The first part of this document discusses specific issues relating to
MathType’s use with PageMaker. If you want more detailed instructions on the
standard procedures for inserting and editing equations, see the section, Inserting and Editing Equations.
Aligning MathType equations at the baseline
With the exception of equations saved as PICT files or as EPS files with
attached PICTs in the Macintosh version, PageMaker 5 does not automatically
place equations at the baseline. The following procedure will align equations at
the baseline:
 Make sure that you set your Vertical ruler to picas within PageMaker.
 Select Preferences from the File menu.
 Select Picas from the Vertical ruler: pulldown (in the
Layout section).
 Click OK.
 Make sure that Control Palette in the Window menu is checked. The
Control palette should be visible on the screen.
 Bring the equation back into MathType.
 If the equation was imported as a file, run MathType and select Open from the File menu and then select the name of the equation
file.
 If the equation was brought in via Cut and Paste or OLE, doubleclick on
the equation.
 Choose Select All and then Copy from the Edit menu.
 Write down the Baseline: (B= in the Windows version) number
that is displayed in MathType’s status bar.
 Click once on the equation from within PageMaker.
 On the left hand side of the Control palette is the baseline adjustment
section. Convert the number you wrote down in step 5 to picas (1 pica = 12
points, therefore 14 points = 1p2). Enter this number as the baseline
adjustment.
Resizing the OLE frame after an edit
PageMaker does not resize the OLE frame after an equation’s size has been
changed via an OLE edit. Instead, the new equation will be compressed or
expanded to fit in the same frame as the original. Therefore, the frame must be
manually resized. To resize the OLE frame after an edit:
 Make sure that Control palette in the Window menu is checked and
that the palette is visible on your screen.
 Click once on the equation that you wish to resize.
 In the Control palette, there are spaces for width (W) and height (H)
information. Next to those spaces is the current size, and the percentage of
the full size that the current size represents. Change the percentage to
100% next to both W and H.
The equation is now the proper size.
Inserting equations via OLE
To insert equations into a PageMaker document via OLE, use the following
procedure:
 Select Insert object from PageMaker’s Edit menu.
 Select MathType Equation from the Insert Object dialog box. MathType
will now run.
 Edit your equation in MathType. When you are finished editing, select Close from MathType’s File menu.
 Confirm that you want to update changes when the Update Changes dialog
appears.
The equation you created in MathType is now automatically inserted into your
document.
Pasting MathType equations into PageMaker
To paste equations into a PageMaker document, use the following procedure:
 Run MathType and create an equation.
 Choose Select All from the Edit menu to highlight the equation.
 Choose Copy or Cut from the Edit menu.
 Switch to PageMaker and select Paste from the Edit menu.
The equation is now placed in your document, and can be doubleclicked for
editing.
Editing equations with OLE
PageMaker’s support for Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) allows equations
in PageMaker documents to be edited via the following procedure:
 Doubleclick on the equation within the PageMaker document. MathType will
run and the equation will appear in its window.
 After editing the equation in MathType, select Close from the File
menu.
 Confirm that you want to update changes when the Update Changes dialog
appears.
The equation in your document will automatically reflect the changes that you
made in MathType, although it will not be the proper size. See the section
above, Resizing the OLE Frame After an Edit for details on resizing
equations.
Importing MathType equation files into PageMaker
PageMaker accepts equations saved in any file format with the exception of
the Windows Metafile format (in the Windows version). To import MathType
equation files into PageMaker:
 Create an equation within MathType and then select Save from the
File menu. Save the equation in any format except Windows Metafile.
 From within PageMaker, select Place from the File menu.
 Select the file you just saved.
