This new version features handwritten math input via mouse, tablet or touchscreen, and compatibility with over 350 applications and websites, including Google Docs, Gmail, Blackboard and many others.
MathType is a powerful interactive equation editor for Windows and Macintosh that lets you create mathematical notation for word processing, web pages, desktop publishing, presentations, and for TeX, LaTeX, and MathML documents. MathType works with 100s of applications and websites, allowing you to put Equations Everywhere and Anywhere.
Equations Everywhere and Anywhere:
Up until now, MathType has been thought of mostly as a tool that works with Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. But it has always been much more than that. You can label graphs with equations, create equation images for websites, blogs, wikis, export equations to TeX or MathML, and much more.
Enter equations in TeX/LaTeX directly in Word:
If you know the TeX typesetting language, you can type it directly into your Word document. When you are done, the TeX code will be converted to a MathType equation. [Bob's note: This isn't automatic. You can either click an icon on the toolbar or Ribbon, or use the Alt+\ keystroke.] The TeX Toggle keyboard shortcut allows you to toggle between TeX and MathType views of the equation.
New keyboard shortcuts in Word to open equations for editing:
Many of our customers like to use the keyboard. Now you can open an equation next to the insertion point using a keyboard shortcut. Together with our new TeX Toggle feature, you can now enter and edit equations completely from the keyboard without leaving Word.
New translators for Maple, Mathematica, Physics Forum and more:
As part of our "Equations Everywhere and Anywhere" effort, we have added new translators for many applications and websites.
Now you can import mathematics defined using MathML from the many applications that produce it. MathML code can be either in the new MathML Clipboard Format that is supported by a growing number of mathematical and scientific applications or plain text such as from an XML editor, for example. The MathML can be imported via cut and paste or drag and drop.
MathType Interoperability Registry
This is our list of applications and websites that MathType works with. Many of them allow you to create equations using an Insert Object command. Others work with simple cut-and-paste or drag-and-drop. Yet more can accept EPS or GIF equation image files created by MathType. For many of these applications and websites, MathType includes online help pages describing how best to work with it.
Top 10 Applications:
MathType 6.6 equations are compatible with MathType 6.0 and 5.0 equations so you can continue to work with other MathType users even if they haven't upgraded yet. MathType 6.6 will also retain any changes you've made in your current version of MathType, including keyboard shortcuts, toolbars, preferences, etc.
MathType 6 for Windows:
Microsoft Windows Vista, XP, and 2000.
10 MB free hard disk space.
MathType will run on any Windows computer. MathType is not RAM-intensive so listing its requirements is not necessary.
CD-ROM for installation (not required if product is downloaded via the Internet).
MathType does not require Microsoft Office or Microsoft Word. However, it adds a MathType ribbon to Word and PowerPoint 2007, and a MathType toolbar and menu to Word 2003, 2002 (XP) and 2000.
