Equation Editor

  1. Jun 28, 2003 #1
    Who knows of a good equation editor?

    I have used the one that comes with MS Word, and I find it very convenient. Changes in my circumstances will take this editor out of my reach, so I need to find a new one. I found one that is called "Equation Illustrator V." It is clearly more cumbersome that the MS Word Equation editor.
    I would like the program to work indepently of other programs. It would be nice if it included drawing tools for diagrams and such. I don't mind paying a few dollars for a good editor, but of course I'd prefer a free one.

    what changes take this out of your reach?

    I'm going to school, moving away, buying a new computer. The new computer won't have MS Word. Rather than purchase MS word, I thought I could find a new editor. Besides, MS Word only writes equations. Drawing and labeling pictures is pretty good, but could be easier.

    MS word is still pretty good.

    maybe your new computer will come with something.
