MathType 5.0 for Macintosh is now shipping

The fastest way to get equations on the web

Adept Scientific are pleased to announce the release of MathType™ 5.0 for Macintosh OS 9 and OS X; a major upgrade that has all the features of the Windows version. MathType is the professional version of the Equation Editor included with Microsoft Office, AppleWorks and many other products, and is used by maths and science academics, research scientists and publishing professionals to include mathematical notation in printed documents and web pages.

The new version adds hundreds of mathematical and technical symbols and templates, a toolbar and menu commands that turn Microsoft Word into a powerful maths word processor and web page editor. MathType is now able to export all equations from a Word document as individual EPS, GIF, or WMF files, simplifying the workflow with page layout programs, such as QuarkXPress. Other new features include colour support for professional publishing, unlimited undo, add/delete matrix rows and columns, mouse-wheel support, translators to TeX, LaTeX and MathML, and the company’s new MathPage™ technology for converting whole Word documents to web pages that display and print high-quality mathematical notation.

“Anyone who’s ever tried using the ‘Save as Web Page’ feature for documents containing maths, knows that the results are less than desirable”, said Paul R. Topping, the company’s president. “We wanted to give authors an easy way to create Web documents with great-looking maths. The result, our MathPage technology, not only makes the process of putting technical documents on the Web easy, the pages print beautifully.”, said Topping.

What do our Customers say about us?

“While skeptical at first, now having switched to Origin I know it will remain my graphing software of choice. Not only does it have an intuitive user interface, but it also has the power to quickly and efficiently complete all of my graphing needs. Origin is the best graphing software available. Period.”

Mr. Kevin Clark, University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign

Your website is hugely informative and a pleasure to visit. Frankly I wouldn’t dream of buying technical software from anyone else.
