Date: May 10, 2008 5:46:56 PM CEST
This pack­age has been in­stalled and is work­ing its way through the mir­ror­ing sys­tem. Thank you, Jim Hef­feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ........................................................................... The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: MathType 6 for Win­dows Author's name: De­sign Science, Inc. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /sup­port/mathtype Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Math­e­mat­i­cal equa­tion ed­i­tor for Win­dows. English, French, and Ger­man edi­tions. Li­cense type: other-non­free An­nounce­ment text:
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 math 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.
