MathType 6.0 for Windows features:
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 point-and-click editing. You can also copy equations from existing TeX documents.
Copy and author equations from Wikipedia: Wikipedia, the popular online encyclopedia, contains 1000's 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 and improved online help: A combination of 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 efficiently as well as contextual help for its commands and dialogues.
