    Just some tests, trying to use Math Type

    \sqrt {{a^2} + {b^2}}

    \mathop {\lim }\limits_{x \to \infty }


    \int {\frac{{dx}}{{{a^2} + {x^2}}}}  = \frac{1}{a} \cdot {\tan ^{ - 1}}\left( {\frac{x}{a}} \right)

    Math type isn't supported on MHF, whereas LaTeX is. All you would need to do is copy the last line and put it in [tex][/tex] tags.

    So [tex]\sqrt{{{a}^{2}}+{{b}^{2}}}=\underset{x\to \infty }{\mathop{\lim }}\,+\sqrt{{{b}^{2}}-4ac}-\frac{n!}{r!\left( n-r \right)!}[/tex] yields \sqrt{{{a}^{2}}+{{b}^{2}}}=\underset{x\to \infty }{\mathop{\lim }}\,+\sqrt{{{b}^{2}}-4ac}-\frac{n!}{r!\left( n-r \right)!}

    It specifically says it it. Although it appears that there were some changes here because when math type does it, it assumes [tex] instead of [tex]. Oh well, I got it for free anyway. I'm sure there is a way to make it work by default I just don't know how. Thanks.

    Since the last upgrade to this forum the [tex] tag no longer work.
    MathType wrote that before that upgrade took place.
    But in the MathType options you should be able to change translators.

    If math type users wish to post in math help forum choose "Physics" under cut and copy preferences instead of "Math help forum". Simple as that.

    Yes, that's correct, and let me also correct a couple of incorrect statements earlier in the thread, and expand on one that's correct but needs explanation:

    • "Math type isn't supported on MHF, whereas LaTeX is."

    Sort of correct, but it would be better to say it the other way around: "MathType supports MHF". (Note the correct spelling/capitalization of the product: MathType.) Totally correct that MHF doesn't support MathType, which is what you said, but that also sort of implies that MathType doesn't support MHF. See next bullet.

    • "It specifically says it it."

    Yes, we have instructions on our website about using MathType with Math Help Forum. There is a Math Help Forum translator in both MathType for Windows (version 6.6 and later) and MathType for Macintosh (version 6.7, released yesterday, June 14, 2011).

    • "Since the last upgrade to this forum the [tex] tag no longer work. MathType wrote that before that upgrade took place. But in the MathType options you should be able to change translators."

    All of that is correct. MathType 6.6 was released before the change to MHF. The same MHF translator as in v6.6 is used in version 6.7 for Windows, but the translator has been updated for Macintosh, so with MathType 6.7 for Mac you can use the MHF translator as-is. zg12 is correct that for now, using the Physics Help Forum translator in MathType for Windows will produce the correct output. We'll correct the MHF translator for Windows at the first opportunity.

    Feel free to post here (I check MHF every day) or write me directly with questions about using MathType with MHF or any other software application or website.

    Re: Just some tests, trying to use Math Type

    Hello Zg12,
    Would you please show me how I can display like you above using Math Type. I have Math Type 6.6, but so far I am unable to display here at the forum. I try to copy from Word 2007 and paste it here but it does not work.
    Thanks,

    Re: Just some tests, trying to use MathType

    Hello,
    I have Math Type 6.6, but I am just trying to use it. Unfortunately I do not know how to post it here using the software. Would you please explain a little more clear of the steps using "The Physic Help Forum translator in MathType for Window will produce the correct ouput." I have contacted Design Science about this and they said I need to find out first what is this forum's data format so that I can learn and search in the translator of MathType for it to translate. I am appreciated if you can give me the instructions to post it here using MathType.
    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    On our website we have instructions for using MathType with nearly 600 software applications and websites. Please follow our instructions for using MathType with Physics Forums to post here (even though this is Math Help Forum, and not Physics Forums), since you are using MathType for Windows.

    For anyone using MathType 6.7 for Macintosh, the instructions for Math Help Forum are correct.

    Unnecessarily confusing, I know, and like I said above, we'll correct the issue in a future version of MathType. If you have other questions, feel free to contact me directly, or simply post here. I'll answer either way.
