Downloading and installing MathType Desktop

Can I install MathType Desktop on both my home and work computers?

Yes, if you purchase a single-user copy of MathType Desktop, you may install it on all of your computers (i.e., home and work), both Mac and Windows.

Can I download MathType Desktop again if I need to reinstall my software?

Yes. For this you can simply use the link in the order information, which will be sent to you after ordering.

How do I install MathType Desktop?

Once you complete the purchase of MathType Desktop you will receive an order information, there you will be able to download the MathType Desktop software. Once that is complete, double-click the downloaded MathType Desktop installer file. On a Mac, this will open it in a separate window, so double-click "MathType Desktop Installer…" within that window, to run the installer program. On Windows, after you double-click the downloaded MathType Desktop installer file, the installer will run. On both platforms, it will present simple instructions that will guide you through the installation process. You'll be using MathType Desktop in no time at all.

I just bought a new computer. Do I have to buy MathType Desktop again? If not, how do I install it on my new computer?

No, you do not need to buy MathType Desktop again. Just install MathType Desktop on your new computer using the same license key you received by email with your original purchase.

Will others who don't use MathType Desktop be able to read or edit my equations?

You may want to send documents containing MathType Desktop 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 Desktop 30-day trial. Once the trial is over, the MathType Desktop editor will not be available. MathType Desktop's fonts will remain installed, so equations will still display and print.

Will I be able to edit Equation Editor equations with MathType Desktop?

Yes, MathType Desktop can understand and edit Equation Editor equations in your existing documents. MathType Desktop cannot create equations in the old Equation Editor format.

If I install the 30-day trial of MathType Desktop and decide not to buy it, can I go back to using Equation Editor?

Likely not, since Microsoft Office no longer includes Equation Editor. The same will be true of most other products that once included Equation Editor. If you decide not to buy MathType Desktop, you get to keep all of MathType Desktop's additional fonts, so you will still be able to view and print equations created with MathType Desktop, but will not be able to edit them.

Which versions of Apple Pages, Keynote, and Numbers work with MathType Desktop?

MathType Desktop works well with Pages 6.0, Keynote 7.0, Numbers 4.0, and later, but not with earlier versions. Apple picked MathType Desktop as the equation editor to use with these applications. When MathType Desktop is installed, an Equation command appears on the Insert menu. Choosing this command will open MathType Desktop, so you can insert an equation into the document.
