    Scaling in already created eq's in mathtype

    I have a catalog of functions that I have accumulated in word written on mathtype, and want to be able to scale them down so I can fit them on less pages, making them easier to access. I see how to change each equation individually, but is there a way to scale all of them at once?

    Fortunately there's a really simple way to do that, unless you're using Word 2008 on a Mac. For any other version of Word, 2000 and later, this will work.

    1. Double-click any of the equations you want to change.
    2. Change the font & size to whatever you want. (In MathType -- Style > Define, then Size > Define.)
    3. Close MathType.
    4. The equation you just changed should still be selected. Copy it.
    5. In Word, one of the menus (or tabs on the ribbon, if you're using Word 2007 or 2010) will be labeled MathType. In that menu, click the Format Equations command.
    6. There are 4 "radio buttons" in the top section of the Format Equations dialog, and probably at least one of these is grayed-out. Click the one labeled "Equation on clipboard". Make sure "Whole document" is selected in the bottom section.
    7. Click OK.

    Sit back and watch the fun. For a document with 50 equations or so, it should only take a few seconds, then it'll pop up a message telling you how many equations it changed.
