    "Excellent- makes math look like math"

    February 9, 2011  |  

    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.

    I tried to install 6.7B four or five times, and each time it crashed just after I put my system password in. When wil there be a better installer?
