* Notice
* What's New (v5.42)
  • Added: A few new StyleSets with old MathMagic fonts setting added for those who prefer MM~ fonts to new MMa~ fonts, for the compatibility with older equations or Windows versions.
  • Added: Show Nesting Level is added to View menu, to help you figure out the depth level of nested boxes.
  • Added: When there is no bold face style available for a certain font used in the equation, MathMagic now manually generate a Fake Bold face by writing the char one more time with shifted 2% to the right. This value can be customized in the Preferences->Define Spacing->Export Margin & Others pane. 0% turns off this Bold face generating feature.
  • Added: PICT format can now be either Vector based(default) one or Bitmap based(new). This can be set Preferences->Misc pane. The setting applies to all PICT images in Copying, Dragging, and Exporting. Bitmap based PICT does not require the used fonts on the target system to display the equation. But the file size is bigger and the printing quality is limited.(It has 600dpi resolution so it should work fine with most display and printers.) Vector based one needs fonts on the system to display the euqation correctly. But the file size is more compact and there is no zagging even though you enlarge it.
  • Added: Align at Comma(,) is added under Format menu mainly for (many European) countries using Comma as Decimal Separator instead of Period.
  • Added: "Treat Comma as a Decimal Separator" checkbox is added in Preferences->Spacing->TeX Spacing rule pane. When checked, Comma(,) is treated as a Decimal Separator like Period(.) when used in-between numbers so that the leading or trailing space is managed as an Ordinary character instead of Punctuation.

  • Changed: Exporting in Gray EPS format now supports better matched gray conversion.
  • Changed: About box dialog is improved.
  • Changed: A few of Show ~ menu items under View menu are rearranged.
  • Changed: More than triple clicks remain as triple click selecting a full line so user does not have to pay attention whether it is the 3rd click or the 4th.
  • Changed: The file format version is not recorded in the equation if dragged out while pressing option key. This may be useful for making equation clips so it does not complain about the file format difference when dragged-in later from a different version of MathMagic application.

  • Fixed: The right side margin of the Exported PICT equation had 1 extra pixel, which is now fixed. Exported EPS file also had somewhat wider width.
  • Fixed: A few screen update bugs fixed.
