MathType – Evaluation version of a commercial equation editor

MathType is a point and click mathematical equation editor. While its mouse-centric user interface is somewhat the opposite of ’s, it has a number of features that may be of interest to members of the community:

  • It works with many Windows applications that 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 and code from its equations. This can be helpful to someone learning or just to take advantage of MathType’s ability to work directly in mathematical notation in order to get the nested braces right on a particularly gnarly equation.
  • You can even type language directly into the MathType window. This allows you to get the best of both the WYSIWYG editing and worlds.
  • MathType can also produce GIF files for websites and blogs and EPS files for desktop publishing chores.

MathType does not require a product key for installation. Upon first launch, you will have an opportunity to begin a 30-day trial or to enter a purchased product key. If you decide to purchase MathType, you can use the Order MathType command within MathType itself to purchase a product key. You can also visit the Wiris website to learn more about MathType.
