MathMagic Pro is a multi-purpose equation editor which works with wide range of apps and documents such as InDesign, InCopy, Illustrator, Photoshop, Keynote, Pages, iBooks Author, and web editors. This version adds support for direct drawing of vertical and horizontal Fences for fine control over the Fence shape and thickness which is useful for very tall or wide Fences, various Frame types with corner decoration options, includes new Symbol fonts, more Sigma shapes, and more.
v8.5 also comes with new Plug-ins for InDesign CS5, CS5.5 and CS6 to enable batch applying of StyleSets to multiple equations right within InDesign documents. User can apply a new StyleSet to one or more equations with an option to specify the scope, such as drag-selected area, equations in the current Text Box, equations in the current page or in the whole document. This feature dramatically improves the productivity when it is necessary to change a font, font size, spacing or equation shape for hundreds of equations placed in InDesign documents.
InfoLogic also introduces a new MathML converter solution to convert equations linked or embedded in XML/HTML files into MathML. This solution is available for further customization for several XML based workflows.
MathMagic Pro for InDesign comes with Plug-ins for Adobe InDesign CS ~ CS6 to enable the ability to create and edit equations right inside your InDesign document. Equations are placed in EPS format for high quality printing and PDF conversion. Automatic baseline alignment of inline equations and easy double-click re-editing are just a few of the features.
MathMagic Pro works as a stand-alone application so those equations written in MathMagic can be used by wide range of applications by drag and drop or copy and paste. MathMagic reads and writes various industry standard equation formats, such as MathML, LaTeX, Plain TeX, MathJax, ASCIIMath, MathType, Wiki equation, Microsoft Word Equation, or files saved in PDF, EPS, PICT, PNG, JPEG, GIF, BMP by MathMagic or MathType. MathMagic reads mathematical expressions and symbols aloud via Text-To-Speech so it is also widely used for special education.
