MathType finds and opens hard disks with files that store equations. For more information, do you have a problem with equation files, please see the MathType help or ask your question on the MathType forum.
You may want to send documents containing MathType 7 equations to other people so they can view, print, or even edit them. In case they need to edit the equations, they should download and install our free MathType 30-day trial, and they will be able to edit your equations during the trial period. Once the trial is over, the MathType 7 editor will not be available for editing equations. MathType 7 fonts will remain installed, so equations will still display and print.
Equation Editor was a formula editor developed by Design Science that allowed users to construct math and science equations in a WYSIWYG environment, and was included in Microsoft Office and several other commercial applications. It was a simplified version of Design Science's MathType, evidenced with a dialog box enticing the user to upgrade to the full, paid version of the software. It could be used as a standalone program or as an embedded object from within applications that support OLE. Its feature set had not changed significantly since its introduction in Word for Windows version 2.0.
Equation Editor is no longer the default method of creating equations, and is kept for compatibility with old documents only. Instead, a reengineered equation editor is included, which is built into the document-editing part of the Fluent User Interface on core Office 2007 programs and all Office 2010 and 2013 programs, rather than accessed through a separate dialog and being treated as an OLE object in the document. In January 2018, Microsoft published a security update that completely removed the old Equation Editor for Office 2007, Office 2010, Office 2013 and Office 2016 when the update was installed, due to a vulnerability that was being actively exploited.
MathType works well with Pages 6.0, Keynote 7.0, Numbers 4.0, and later, but not with earlier versions. Apple picked MathType as the equation editor to use with these applications. When MathType 7 is installed, an Equation command appears on the Insert menu. d2c66b5586
