  • 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.

  • Select one StyleSet from the list. Then, specify the scope to apply the StyleStyle: the selection equation, the current Text box, the current Page, or the whole document. Then, click "Apply".
  • The maximum number to Apply a StyleSet is 100 equations at a time. If the selected range includes more than 100, please select smaller area and try again.
  • If multiple equations are in the specified area, it may take a while to apply a StyleSet to all the equations in the scope.
  • If no equation is found in the specified area, or if more than 100 equations, there will be an error message.
  • After applying a StyleSet to all specified equations, there will be a Completion message with the total applied number of equations.
  • If just one equation is selected, the completion message may not be displayed.
