Upgrading to Microsoft Office XP and Office 2003 results in the MathType menu and toolbar not appearing in Word. In addition the toolbar button for inserting equations not appearing in PowerPoint 2002.
Mathtype D52E MathType 4.0 for Windows users who upgrade to Microsoft Office XP and Office 2003 find that the MathType menu and toolbar do not appear in Word 2002 and 2003. In addition the toolbar button in PowerPoint 2002 for inserting MathType equations into presentations is also absent. Reinstalling MathType does not cause them to appear. The reason for this is: MathType 4.0 is compatible with Office XP and 2003, but was released in early 1999, long before Office XP, and was not designed to work with Word 2002 and PowerPoint 2002. The add-in included with MathType 4 for Word 2000 will work with Word 2002 and 2003, but it must be manually installed. The MathType add-in for PowerPoint 2000 does not work with PowerPoint 2002, but you can easily add a button for inserting MathType equations in PowerPoint by customizing PowerPoint's toolbars. You can edit MathType equations by double-clicking on them in Word 2002, Word 2003 and PowerPoint 2002 without the add-ins being installed. Solution To get the MathType menu and toolbar in Word, you need to manually install the MathType add-in for Word 2000. We are currently developing MathType 5.0, which will install improved add-ins correctly into Word 2002, Word 2003 and PowerPoint 2002. We will automatically notify all registered MathType users when MathType 5 for Windows is released. If you would like to be notified, please register your copy of MathType if you have not already done so. This notice addresses both Microsoft Word 2002, 2003 and PowerPoint 2002. 1.
