Main Question or Discussion Point
Hello, do anyone know a website where we can download for free 'equation editor' or any program to write math equations easily, which can be used on microsoft word? Thank you..
TC may not be very well-designed, but it's not buggy and it works as advertised. A few minutes will get you used to its quirks. I don't use any of its "helper" functionality, but I wouldn't use that with any sort of IDE. It's certainly far preferable to writing TeX in Word!All you need to create LaTeX is the LaTeX installation and a *good* text editor. That would mean Vim or Emacs. TexnicCenter is truly awful: it is quite clearly a programming IDE that has been hacked to work for LaTeX and it shows (to compile the latex source is non-obvious, try the build menu. To view the output is even more non-obvious since that too is on the 'build' menu, and not the 'view' menu - that would be too sensible).
And so does Emacs (or Vim). Still, if people want to use unnecessarily complicated pointless interfaces good luck to them. Personally, I can't think of any editor that is better than Vim with the LaTeX extension. Just think of all the nice features:TC may not be very well-designed, but it's not buggy and it works as advertised.
Thx, uart. I have downloaded abiword, but i cant find any equation editor in it. Where is it? or do i have to download extra file?
Ok here's the part where you actually have to learn some basic latex commands. Don't be discouraged if it looks complicated at first, just concentrate on learning the most basic features like fractions, square-root, indices (superscripts) and subscripts for now. You'll soon find it becomes very fast and easy to use.I have downloaded the plugin for equation editor. But how to make roots or fractions? like 1/2 or x^0.5 to appear with the appropriate symbols
