[Math+Magic]™ Pro Edition for Adobe InDesign
for Mac OS X

Update for InDesign CC 2022

As Adobe InDesign CC 2022 was released on October 26, 2021, we are working on CC2022 plug-ins for MathMagic Pro for InDesign.
As InDesign CC 2022 for Mac reqires macOS X 10.15 Catalina or newer, we hope to release the CC2022 compatible version of MathMagic Pro for Mac sometime early in Q2, 2022 as we are still working on the 64-bit version of MathMagic.
If your regular MathMagic Pro was purchased or upgraded after September 1, 2021, you can enjoy the free upgrade to the CC 2022 ready version.
Or, if your 2-year free upgrade service period or subscription period is still in effect when CC2022 ready MathMagic Pro is released, you may simply download and use it when released.

*** Until CC 2022 MathMagic plug-in is available, we recommend you to stay with InDesign CC2021 or older version (without Updating to InDesign CC2022) if you need to write/edit equations in your InDesign documents.
If you just need to view or print your InDesign documents that contain MathMagic equations, you can open the document with InDesign CC 2022, as MathMagic equations are stored in EPS format and InDesign does not require MathMagic plug-in to view or print equations.
Thank you for your patience.

MathMagic Pro Edition v9.77

  • You may select the Sigma tool button from the floating main toolbar to create an equation box, and then drag a rectangle in the document to specify the location of an equation once created by the external MathMagic Pro.
  • You may also control-click(or right button click) while the cursor is in the text box, so that you can choose the "New Equation" from the contextual menu.
  • If you either select "New Equation" menu or drag a rectangle with th Sigma tool, MathMagic Pro application will be launched, if not running already, and an empty equationd editor window will be opened.
