# MathType – Evaluation version of a commercial equation editor

MathType is a point and click mathematical equation editor. It is
the full-featured version of the Equation Editor that comes with
Microsoft Office and other products. While its mouse-centric user
interface is somewhat the antithesis of TeX’s, it has a
number of features that may be of interest to members of the TeX
community:

– It works with many Windows applications that TeX does
not work directly with, such as word processors, presentation
programs like PowerPoint, and many more. You can even place
equations in flowcharts made with programs like Visio.

– It can produce TeX and LaTeX code from its equations.
This can be helpful to someone learning TeX or just to take
advantage of MathType’s ability to work directly in
mathemtical notation in order to get the nested braces right on a
particularly gnarly equation.

– You can even type TeX language directly into the
MathType window. This allows you to get the best of both the
WYSIWYG editing and TeX worlds.
– MathType can also produce GIF files for websites and
blogs and EPS files for desktop publishing chores.

MathType is supplied here as a 30-day evaluation. If you decide to purchase MathType, you can use the Order MathType command within MathType itself to purchase a product key.
