**More Ways to Create Equations:**

**Entering Math by Hand:**Enter equations as

easily as you would write math with paper and pencil! This feature uses

the built-in handwriting recognition in Windows 7 and later.**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 customizable 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 a

MathType equation for use 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**:**Office 2016 for Windows:**MathType 6.9 is fully compatible with Office 2016 and Office

365 for Windows**Office 2013, 2010, 2007,**MathType 6.9 is

2003, & XP:

fully compatible.**Office Web Apps, Office**MathType equations

Mobile, and Office RT:

cannot be edited in these Office versions but equations created in other

versions of Office will display and print.**Microsoft Office 365, 2016 (Windows), 2013, 2010 & 2007 —**MathType takes full advantage of Office’s Ribbon User Interface

MathType Ribbon Tab in Word and PowerPoint:

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**MathType adds a toolbar

in Word and PowerPoint:

and menu to Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, allowing quick access to its

features and powerful commands to do equation numbering, produce

great-looking math web pages, presentations, and much more.

**Find
Symbols: **MathType’s Insert Symbol dialog allows you to explore

the available symbols and insert them with a click or keystroke.

**More Control:**

**Color:**Use color 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 our exclusive Euclid™ math fonts, you can also make

use of the 1000s of math symbols in fonts already on your computer, as well as

other math fonts you can download from the Internet.

**Work with MathML and LaTeX:**

**Work in standard math notation:**LaTeX and MathML are

computer languages for representing mathematical notation.**LaTeX**is used by many mathematicians but has a

steep learning curve and its abundance of braces and keywords make typing

it extremely tedious and error-prone. Most people find it much easier to

work directly with standard math notation in MathType.**MathML**was created in 1998 by the World Wide

Web Consortium (W3C) and defines math in HTML5, EPUB3, DAISY, DITA,

NLM/JATS, and many other publishing standards. It is not intended to be

typed by humans but created and edited with tools like MathType.**Copy as MathML or LaTeX:**Complex mathematical

equations can be entered easily in MathType and then copied to the

clipboard as LaTeX or MathML to be pasted into applications and websites

that use those languages.

**Paste
MathML or LaTeX into MathType: **Many websites contain equations

expressed in LaTeX or MathML and can be pasted directly into MathType for use

in your own work or to convert them to a different format (eg, LaTeX to

MathML).

MathType runs on Microsoft Windows 10, 8

(not Windows RT), 7, Vista, or XP. RAM and hard disk requirements are minimal.

MathType will run on Microsoft Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2, Surface 3, and

Surface 3 Pro tablets. MathType **will not run on Surface RT, Surface,
and Surface 2 tablets. **If in doubt, check the version of Windows your

tablet is running. If it is running Windows RT, you cannot use MathType with

it. If it is running Windows 10 or any of the other supported versions of

Windows, MathType will work with it.
