MathType 6 for Macintosh is now shipping

New version adds support for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and Intel Mac; compatible with Microsoft Office 2008

Adept Scientific plc (Letchworth, Herts) is pleased to bring you the latest release of Design Science’ s (Long Beach, California) MathType™ 6 for Macintosh, a major upgrade that adds support for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and Intel Macs and Microsoft Office 2008.

New features include TeX/LaTeX input, the ability to copy equations to and from Wikipedia, and more. MathType is the full-featured, professional version of the Equation Editor in Microsoft Office and many other products and is used by math and science educators, engineers, research scientists, students and publishing professionals to include mathematical notation in printed documents, presentations and web pages.

MathType 6 for Macintosh enables the user to copy equations from existing TeX documents and scientists who already know the TeX typesetting language can now type expressions directly into MathType. “The new LaTeX-to-MathType feature is marvellous. Instead of having to retype all my equations again to use in a PowerPoint presentation I now can just cut and paste. This is the best software purchase I have made in a long time,” said Alfonso Limon, Chief Scientist, A&A Consulting Ca.

MathType 6 for Macintosh now works with Wikipedia, the popular online encyclopedia that contains thousands of pages with mathematical equations. Users can do research on Wikipedia and copy relevant equations for use in their own work. MathType equations can also be copied into Wikipedia’s page editor to create new pages or edit existing ones. With MathType 6 for Macintosh you can copy or drag equations from any web page that contains accessible math directly into MathType.

MathType 6 for Macintosh is a Universal application that runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macintosh computers and has all the features of MathType 6 for Windows.
