"The best program of its kind! No Competition yet!!"

Pros

Easy syntax. Great Copy paste short cuts of the "image" CTRL+M. No need to learn LateX and similar complicated stuff. Easy paste into other MS products. PDF retains High quality equation image.

Cons

The compatibility settings do cause poor image quality, but that is an issue if you are sharing the raw MS word files digitally with non-users. I used a PDF printer (Bullzip) to solve this issue. Also OneNote, retains the images in high quality - if you turn off the computability/portability view.

Summary

I have used this through out university BA and MA Economics to make my notes and lectures digital. I used it as the professor taught and copied MS Word output into OneNote for traceable notes attached to an audio file and lecture slides (printed into Onenote from Powerpoint)

In summary, great for note taking, and in some cases PDFs shared with others. Sharing the MS word/power-point files you run into issues.

Suggested use for Class notes/Lecture notes:
Print Powerpoint slides into OneNote, copy paste them into a Column (Dont give up it took me some time to figure out how easy this is from the unfilled notes section). Create a side column for actual notes type as needed. When it is time for equation Open MS word. In MS word open Rapid-PI to write equation, do not close editor, simply CRTL+M to copy the HQ image. In OneNote paste into desired location. It will take some tweaks to get font size to be perfect, but if its not the HQ image is okay to resize. Next time you need equation, simply close the editor in MS word and add another Raid pi -equation next to the previous one. When done save the MS word as the Master file for equations to make future edits and corrections.

Practice and all will be great. Add the use of Paint.NET for diagrams on the fly and you will stun people all the time. I usually had 90% of the notes digitized by the end of the lecture. When equation got out of hand, Paper notes were done and then added back into the right place.
