MathType

Design Science MathType™ is a powerful interactive tool for Windows and Macintosh that lets you create mathematical notation for word processing, web pages, desktop publishing, presentations, and for TeX, LaTeX, and MathML documents. MathType is the professional version of the Equation Editor in Microsoft Office and works with 600+ of applications and websites.

Works with Many Applications

While many MathType users create equations for Microsoft Word documents and PowerPoint presentations, MathType also works with many, many other applications and websites and we are adding more and more every day:

  • Add equations to Quark and InDesign documents.
  • Copy equations from websites like Wikipedia, PlanetMath, etc. for use in your own work. You can author new equations for those websites as well.
  • Copy equations from Mathematica or Maple into your research. Use equations to label DeltaGraph scientific graphs and Excel spreadsheets.
  • Work with TeX and LaTeX editors and documents.

Go to Works With ... to see the MathType Interoperability Registry which lists 100s of compatible applications and websites. Most likely you will see several that you already use or plan to use. If your favorite one is not there, MathType may still work with it using cut and paste, drag and drop, Insert Object, or equation image files.
