Take control of your maths equations with MathType 6.8

Newly released MathType 6.8 from Design Science (Long Beach, California) is a powerful interactive equation editor for Windows that lets you create mathematical notation for word processing, web pages, desktop publishing, presentations, elearning and TeX, LaTeX and MathML documents.

Available from Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) MathType 6.8 works with over 600 applications and websites including 64-bit Microsoft Office 2010.  A major new feature of MathType 6.8 is the ability to paste a table from your spreadsheet, document or web page straight into MathType as a matrix.

MathType 6.8 gives you more ways to create equations:

  • Entering maths by hand: Enter equations as easily as you would write maths with paper and pencil! This feature uses the built-in handwriting recognition in Windows 7.
  • Point-and-click editing with automatic formatting: Create equations quickly by choosing templates from MathType’s palettes and typing into their empty slots. MathType applies mathematical spacing rules automatically as you type.
  • Keyboard shortcuts: Save time using keyboard shortcuts. MathType has customisable keyboard shortcuts for virtually every symbol, template and command.
  • Type TeX or LaTeX: If you already know the TeX typesetting language you can enter equations directly into MathType or Microsoft Word documents. TeX editing can be mixed with point-and-click editing so you get the best of both worlds. You can even paste in equations from existing TeX documents.
  • Copy-and-paste: If you created your equation in another application or found one on a website, why take the time to create it by hand again? Simply copy-and-paste it directly into MathType and it is ready to edit or use in your work.
  • Save expressions in the toolbar: Drag frequently used equations and expressions to the MathType toolbar so they can be inserted later with just a click or a keystroke.
  • Supports Microsoft Office 2010 (both 32- and 64-bit), 2007, 2003 and XP (2002).
  • Microsoft Office 2007 & 2010 – MathType Ribbon Tab in Word and PowerPoint: MathType takes full advantage of Office’s Ribbon User Interface making it easier than ever to do equation operations in documents and presentations. New equation numbering and browse features work with all Word equation types.
  • Microsoft Office 2003 and XP (2002) – MathType Toolbar and Menu in Word and PowerPoint: MathType adds a toolbar and menu to Microsoft Word and PowerPoint allowing quick access to its features and powerful commands to do equation numbering, produce great-looking maths web pages, presentations and much more.
  • Find Symbols: MathType’s Insert Symbol dialogue allows you to explore the available symbols and insert them with a click or keystroke.

 In addition, MathType 6.8 affords more visual control: 

  • Colour: Use colour to highlight part of an equation and focus your audience’s attention on just the portions you want. Show what changed in each step of a multi-step procedure and make those equations really come to life.
  • More Fonts: MathType has hundreds more symbols and templates than Equation Editor. Besides the exclusive Euclid™ maths fonts you can also make use of the 1000s of maths symbols in fonts already on your computer, as well as other maths fonts you can download from the Internet.

MathType has long been known as the professional version of the Equation Editor in Microsoft Office, used by millions of educators, scientists and engineers to create papers and presentations with textbook-quality equations. According to scientific and technical publishers, over 85 per cent of submitted manuscripts containing mathematical notation are Microsoft Word documents with MathType or Equation Editor equations.

Working with equations gets even easier

Equations are fiddly things to construct in a document, email or web page – it’s almost impossible to make them look right without a dedicated equation editor. The Equation Editor that’s bundled with Microsoft Word has hardly changed in almost 20 years, so for a flexible, inexpensive solution that’s easy to use, has a huge range of formatting and presentation options, and works with just about every online or desktop application you’re ever likely to use, there’s nothing to rival MathType.

MathType 6.8 for Windows has just been released and it’s hard to imagine a more useful tool. It works with over 600 applications and websites, including 64-bit Microsoft Office 2010. It offers better accessibility for people with, for example, low vision; speech commands; handwriting input and much more. One major new feature of MathType 6.8 lets you paste a table from your spreadsheet, document or web page straight into MathType as a matrix – that’s really useful.

Why not download our MathType 6.8 trial version today? Even if you don’t decide to buy it, after the 30-day trial has expired it reverts to the free MathType Lite which has a lot more functionality than Equation Editor, so it’s a win-win for you whatever you decide!

Apple Picks MathType for iBooks Author

Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) is pleased to announce that MathType from Design Science (Long Beach California) has been chosen by Apple as the equation editor for its new Mac iBooks Author application. Authors are now able to create ebooks that include mathematical notation which can be read on iPad tablets.

“Obviously ebooks are the future for education and the future is now. We’re happy to have the opportunity to work with Apple and that iBooks Author handles mathematics so well,” said Paul Topping, Design Science’s President and CEO.

Within iBooks Author, an Insert MathType Equation command appears on the Insert menu if MathType is installed. Choosing this command inserts an equation into the document at the insertion point. This is similar to how MathType works with Apple’s iWork ’09 office suite. In order to make the maths accessible to users with vision impairments, users can associate text to be spoken for each equation using Apple’s VoiceOver screen reader software.

MathType is used by millions of educators, scientists, engineers and publishing professionals to include textbook-quality mathematical notation in all types of printed documents, presentations, on the web and now ebooks.
