The MathML Toolbox Standard
MathFlow for Arbortext
Design Science has partnered with PTC to create two products
that install into Arbortext Editor and Arbortext Publishing Engine.
Each product may be purchased separately,
and are available as fixed or concurrent (floating) licenses.
- MathFlow Editor: a full-featured WYSIWYG MathML equation editor
that installs into Arbortext Editor for authoring and editing MathML
equations. In addition, it enables import of Microsoft Word documents, with
equations as MathML instances within an XML document.
- MathFlow Composer: works with Arbortext Editor or Publishing Engine
for PDF and web output of MathML equations.
MathFlow Editor is a native MathML equation editor that works with Arbortext
Editor. MathFlow Editor's user experience is similar to how Design Science's
MathType product works with Microsoft Word — the operator
double-clicks on an equation in an XML document and it automatically opens in
the MathFlow Editor window. To compose a new equation, a click on the MathFlow
Editor button in the XML editor's toolbar opens a new equation window. Equations
appear in typeset form within Arbortext Editor and are saved as MathML within
the XML document.

MathFlow Editor also adds equation conversion to PTC's Arbortext
Import/Export feature. With MathFlow Editor installed, MathType and Equation
Editor equations in Microsoft Word documents will be converted to MathML while
the surrounding document is converted into XML.
MathFlow Composer works together with Arbortext Composer and
Arbortext Publishing Engine to generate output documents with properly formatted
mathematical equations. The following composition options are available in
- Draft PDF Composition: generates a PNG image for each equation, to be
included in the PDF file.
- High Quality PDF Composition: generates postscript code for each equation
(this feature is available only on Windows).
- HTML Composition: saves an HTML or XHTML version of the document that can
be viewed with a web browser.
