How to convert equation in MathType to Latex

with 16 comments I wanna convert my equation in MathType to Latex. I used to present my lab seminar using Microsoft Power Point and now I wanna write my thesis using Latex. Therefore, I have to copy my equations in Power Point into my Latex file. Fortunately, MathType has Tex translator. I will show you how to use it.

1. Double click your equation then you will go to MathType

2. Click Preferences –>Cut and Copy Preferences

3. And choose MathML or Latex

4. Copy your equation into your Latex File

5. Finish

I hope it helps 🙂

  7. I have a word document with a million different Mathtype expressions in it, separated by text. I want to convert the entire document to latex. Copying each expression into latex separately would be prohibitively time-consuming. Is there anyway to do a one click conversion that places latex code into the word document, say, just below where the MathType image is, so that I could then convert the entire document to latex using, say, writer2latex?

    Thanks for any suggestions.
