Reason #1: To get the latest features, bug fixes, and compatibility changes for new versions of Microsoft Office and other applications
While MathType is a mature product that has been around for over 20 years, we continually add new features to help you with your work and to keep current with the applications and websites it works with and your computer's system software. It is important that you upgrade to the latest version in order to take advantage of these enhancements.


 Compatibility with Microsoft Office 2010: MathType works with the latest release from Microsoft, Office 2010, as well as Office 2007, 2003, and 2002 (XP).
 Compatibility with over 350 applications and websites! Check out Works With ... to see our list of the many applications and websites that now work with MathType. Here are a few of the most popular:
 Windows 7 compatibility: MathType 6.7 works on Windows 7 (32bit and 64bit versions), Vista, and XP operating systems.



 Recognizes handwritten math: If you are using Windows 7 you can use a tablet, mouse, or touch screen to enter handwritten math directly into MathType, Microsoft Word and PowerPoint.
 Compatibility with over 350 applications and websites! Check out Works With ... to see our list of the many applications and websites that now work with MathType. Here are a few of the most popular:
 Windows 7 compatibility: MathType 6.6 works on Windows 7, Vista, XP and 2000 operating systems.



 Equations Everywhere and Anywhere™: Up until now, MathType has been thought of mostly as a tool that works with Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. But it has always been much more than that. You can label graphs with equations, create equation images for websites, blogs, wikis, export equations to TeX or MathML, and much more.
 Enter equations in TeX/LaTeX directly in Word: If you know the TeX typesetting language, you can type it directly into your Word document. When you are done, you can use the TeX Toggle keyboard shortcut to toggle between TeX and MathType views of the equation.
 New keyboard shortcuts in Word to open equations for editing: Many of our customers like to use the keyboard. Now you can open an equation next to the insertion point using a keyboard shortcut. Together with our new TeX Toggle feature, you can now enter and edit equations completely from the keyboard without leaving Word.
 New translators for Maple, Mathematica, Physics Forum and more: As part of our "Equations Everywhere and Anywhere" effort, we have added new translators for many applications and websites. See Works With ... to see our MathType Interoperability Registry which lists the many, many applications and websites MathType works with.
 MathML Import: Now you can import mathematics defined using MathML from the many applications that produce it. MathML code can be either in the new MathML Clipboard Format that is supported by a growing number of mathematical and scientific applications or plain text such as from an XML editor. The MathML can be imported via cut and paste or drag and drop.


 Microsoft Office 2007 Support: MathType takes full advantage of Office 2007's new Ribbon User Interface by adding a new MathType Tab in Word and PowerPoint. This makes it easier than ever to do equation operations in documents and presentations. New equation numbering and browse features work with all Word 2007 equation types. MathType 6 also supports Office 2003, XP (2002), and 2000.
 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 pointandclick 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.
 Windows Vista Support: MathType 6 now works on Windows Vista, XP, and 2000 operating systems.
 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. It contains tutorials that teach you how to use MathType most efficiently as well as contextual help for its commands and dialogs.


 Color: You can color all or part of an equation to match the color scheme of your PowerPoint presentation, or to draw your student's attention to a particular step in a derivation.
 Insert Equation in Word: MathType installs a toolbar into Microsoft Word, giving you the ability to insert mathematical notation inline or centered, with or without equation numbers, with just a click. No need to use Word's clunky "Insert Object" dialog.
 MathType Commands in Word: The MathType toolbar in Microsoft Word also gives quick access to commands to renumber equations on the fly, insert equation references, or convert a Word document to a web page, all while working in Word.
 Export Equations: Export all equations in a Word document as GIF or EPS image files for use with web page construction or desktop publishing applications such as Adobe InDesign and QuarkXPress.
 Insert Symbol Dialog: Lets you explore the many math symbols present in fonts you already have on your computer, fonts you can purchase, or fonts you download for free. You can insert them into your equations with a click or, if you plan to use the symbol often, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to it.
 Save Word documents as mathsavvy web pages: MathType's new MathPage™ feature allows you to save a web page where, unlike Word's builtin "Save as Web Page" command, the equations actually look good. Choose to make your equation a GIF image or MathML, the W3C's XML standard for math.
 Customizable Keyboard Shortcuts: Work faster by assigning keystroke combinations to your favorite symbols and templates.
 Unlimited Undo/Redo: 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.
 MathML 2.0 Support: MathType's MathML translators have been updated to the latest MathML Specification from the W3C.
