* Microsoft Word documents(.doc, .docx) are supported


If you have MS Word documents with equations and need to re-use those equations in your publication, MathMagic will help you save time.
MathMagic v6.9x for Mac and MathMagic v4.9x for Windows now come with "Batch conversion" of equations out of MS Word documents. MathMagic reads one or more of MS Word documents(.doc, .docx), extract all equations and save as external files for each equation, allowing you to choose the external format from any of MathMagic supported formats: PDF, EPS, PICT, JPEG, GIF, LaTeX, MathML, and others. MS Equation 3.0 equations, MathType equations, and MathMagic equations in MS Word documents are supported. Equations created using MS Word 2007's new Linear equation format not supported yet although we are going to support it by later this year.
You can also extract all other images as external files. Conversion list can be saved in the log file.

Here is the screen shot of the batch conversion dialog.
