"Excellent- makes math look like math"

February 09, 2011

 |  Version: MathType 6.0b

Pros

alignment, flexibility (e.g., large subscripts), custom toolbars, integration with Mathematica, and with MS Word, easy export in variety of formats

Cons

Extras (auto eqn numbering) only with Word 2004. Hope Word 2011 will restore Visual Basic and fix this.

Summary

Superb equation editor, even the MathType Lite version is great. Would be nice to have an equation database, to store equations by topic area; for now I just store equations in topic-based Word files. I had no trouble installing but I was upgrading from older versions.

"Installer is faulted"

February 02, 2010  |  By silasper

 |  Version: MathType 6.0b

Pros

Previous versions worked great

Cons

Installer did not work as promised

Summary

Altough installer said MathType 6.0b was correctly installed it did not work.
MathType support said it was an OLE problem and took me through steps to correct it but these didn't work either. I was than told of two choices. 1) I needed to remove MathType, reinstall MSWord and repeat. I asked what I could do to restore my computer to the previous verions (Time maciine and/or disk image). I was told that this was not possible. They couldn't telll me which files needed to be restored.

In fact it took me about 5minutes to do a global search for MathType on the main disk and the mirror. Compared the two, replaced the new ones from the files on the mirror and this solved the problem.

MathType support told me other users had the same problem that they had no idea what caused it.

Updated on Feb 2, 2010

Sorry; 2nd choice was to use Time Machine to restore the entire disk.

"could not see any improvement over v5.1"

September 08, 2008  |  By jonesmath

 |  Version: MathType 6.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
except being UB now, could not find any improvements on UI or feature set since v5.1.

Copying as TeX causes error very often and unstable, especially when there are some accute or accents applied. Sometimes crashes when pasting or typing TeX expressions.

You may just call it v5.x but defintely not v6.0 with this much changes.

Please watch out your competitors, MathMagic and MathEq.

"MathType is Back!"

March 27, 2004  |  By it young

 |  Version: MathType 5.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
After a long wait, version 5 is available for the Mac. I am runnng Panther 10.3.3 and everything has gone exceedingly well. First, I deleted all MathType v3.7 files, yes, all of them. The "uninstaller" missed some but OS X found the rest. Then I installed v5.0 and it is working perfectly. The connections to Microsoft Word v10.1.4 were made correctly and are also working perfectly. After installing OS X some 15 months ago, I am now back in business with MathType. I did not wait for the 30-day, full, free trial to expire. I paid immediately and it is worth every (Euro)cent.

What's new in version 6.0
Virtually all MathType features are enhanced in each major release. Here are some major new features in MathType 6. To learn more about these features, visit our Full Feature List.
  • Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Support: MathType now supports Mac OS X versions 10.3.9 or newer, including version 10.5 also known as Leopard.
  • Intel Mac Support: MathType is now a Universal application (also known as a Universal Binary) which means that it runs fast on both Intel and PowerPC Macs.
  • Microsoft Office 2008 Support: MathType is compatible with Office 2008 but not all features are available. Please see our Full Feature List for details.
  • Define Equations using TeX/LaTeX: If you already know the TeX typesetting language, you can enter equations quickly using MathType's TeX input mode. TeX editing can be mixed with point-and-click editing so you get the best of both worlds. You can also copy equations from existing TeX documents.
  • Copy and Author Equations from Wikipedia: Wikipedia, the popular online encyclopedia, contains 1000s of pages with mathematical equations. Once you do your research on Wikipedia, you can copy relevant equations for use in your own work. You can also copy MathType equations into Wikipedia's page editor in order to create new pages or edit existing ones.
  • Equation Browsing: The new equation browsing feature allows you to visit every equation and/or equation number and reference in your Word document or PowerPoint presentation.
  • MathML Clipboard Support: MathType can now copy equations to the Windows clipboard using the new MathML Clipboard Format that is supported by a growing number of mathematical and scientific applications.
  • New, Improved Online Help: We have combined MathType's user manual and help into a single comprehensive help system, featuring full text search and an extensive index, and works with Apple Help. It contains tutorials that teach you how to use MathType most efficiently as well as contextual help for its commands and dialogs.
MathType 6 equations are compatible with MathType 5 equations so you can continue to work with others even if they haven't upgraded yet. MathType 6 will also retain any changes you've made in your current version of MathType to keyboard shortcuts, toolbars, preferences, etc.
