MathType with Microsoft PowerPoint 


MathType for people that know TeX/LaTeX
 Type equations in TeX directly into Word: You can type TeX directly into your Microsoft Word document. When you are done, type Alt+\ (Toggle TeX) to convert it to a MathType equation. Later, if you want to edit the equation’s TeX code, just type Alt+\ again. The Toggle TeX command allows you to switch between TeX and MathType views of the equation.
 Mix typing TeX with pointandclick editing: You can enter equations quickly using MathType’s TeX input mode. TeX editing can be mixed with pointandclick editing so you get the best of both worlds.
 Paste TeX from existing documents: Many TeX users have existing documents with lots of equations. Just copy them to the clipboard and paste into a MathType equation window to avoid retyping them.
 Export equations to TeX/LaTeX: MathType comes with translators for several variant’s of TeX/LaTeX:
 Plain TeX (as described in Donald Knuth’s The TeX Book)
 AMSTeX (Plain TeX with extensions from the American Mathematical Society)
 LaTeX (version 2.09 and later)
 AMSLaTeX (LaTeX with AMS extensions)
 Customizable translators: Each translator is defined in a text file using a simple scripting language. This allows you to customize any of our translators to suit your own needs, or even create one from scratch.

More Features
More math symbols and fonts:
 More symbols and templates: MathType has hundreds more symbols and templates than Equation Editor. Beside our exclusive Euclid™ math fonts, you can also make use of the 1000’s of math symbols in fonts already on your computer, as well as math fonts you can download from the Internet.
 Insert Symbol Dialog: MathType’s Insert Symbol dialog allows you to explore the available symbols and insert them with a click or keystroke.
 Search for characters based on words in their Unicode description: MathType contains a database of character descriptions and knowledge of what characters are contained in most math fonts. For example, search for “less” to see the many variations of the < symbol.
Color all or part of an equation:
 Great for slide presentations and teaching: Coloring an equation can make it stand out in a slide show. Use color to highlight part of an equation to focus your students’ attention on it. Show the part that changed in each step of a multistep procedure.
 CMYK, RGB, spot colors: MathType also handles CMYK, RGB and spot color for page layout software, such as QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign.
Customizable keyboard shortcuts:
 Shortcuts for virtually every command: While pulldown menus make MathType easy, keyboard shortcuts make it fast as well, allowing power users to drive MathType without taking their hands off the keyboard.
 Assign new shortcuts to your favorite symbols or equations: You can assign your own keyboard shortcut to any symbol from any font, or any equation or expression you want to insert quickly from the keyboard.
Save equations as GIF, EPS, WMF and PICT image files:
 GIF images: MathType creates smoothlooking GIF equations on either color or transparent backgrounds. Since MathType’s image generation is optimized for mathematical notation, equation images created with MathType look much better than those created by other tools.
 EPS: EPS is often the format of choice for professional publishing with QuarkXPress, Adobe InDesign, PageMaker and other page layout programs.
 WMF: WMF is the standard file format for line art for Microsoft Windows operating systems.
 Automatic file numbering: MathType can automatically number the equation files it saves, making it easy to save a sequence of equation files having similar filenames (e.g. “eqn1”, “eqn2”, and so on). This is especially handy when working with GIF files or EPS files.
Unlimited undo and redo:
 Unlike Equation Editor, MathType lets you undo your editing one step at a time, all the way back to the way your equation was at the start of the session.
Support for ViewPlus Braille Math:
 Design Science worked with ViewPlus, Inc. to allow you to prepare Word documents that can be printed on a ViewPlus Tiger Embosser. See ViewPlus’ Fast and Easy Braille Math Translation for details.
Automatically formats as you type:
 MathType applies the rules of mathematical typesetting as you type. It automatically chooses fonts, style, spacing and position as you enter the equation. You can modify MathType’s rules to accommodate your own style, or switch between automatic formatting and plain text modes with a single keystroke. For maximum flexibility and control, MathType gives you the ability to nudge equation elements in 1/4 point increments.
Add or delete matrix/table rows and columns:
 Unlike Equation Editor, MathType allows you to add or delete rows and columns within existing matrices and tables by using the commands on the new Matrix menu.
Save common equations and expressions for reuse with just a click or a keystroke:
 Saves time: Holds hundreds of your most frequently used symbols, expressions, and equations.
 Drag and drop expressions: Drag from your equation and drop onto the toolbar.
 Insert symbols or expressions with just a keystroke: Associate a keyboard shortcut with any symbol, template, or expression so that it can be inserted later using just the keyboard.
 Named tabs: Organize your toolbar expressions and symbols using named tabs (e.g. “Geometry”, “Science”, etc.). Customize the names as you see fit.
Export to MathML:
 MathML: MathML is an XMLbased language adopted as a Recommendation by the World Wide Web Consortium, the main standards body governing the web. If you are interested in learning more about MathML, a good place to start is our Math on the Web section of this site.
 Customizable translators: Each translator is defined in a text file using a simple scripting language. This allows you to customize any of our translators to suit your own needs, or even create one from scratch.
Customizable function recognition:
 Automatic function recognition: When you type “sin”, “cos”, “lim”, etc., MathType understands you are typing a function and will automatically change its font to “function style”.
 Add your own functions: You can also add your own functions to the list that MathType recognizes.
Three toolbar viewing sizes:
 You can choose from three different viewing sizes for MathType’s toolbars, making it easy to adjust the way you work to both small and large screens, as well as make it easier for those that simply like larger buttons.
International character and keyboard support:
 Asian characters: Supports input of East Asian characters on Windows and Mac OS using standard input methods.
 Accents: European accented character support.
 Multiple soft keyboards: When multiple “keyboards” are installed, you can choose to have MathType automatically switch keyboards when you switch styles and viceversa. (Windows version)
