  • 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 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 equation editor window will be opened. In case MathMagic Pro application is not launched automatically within a few seconds, please launch the application manually from the following location.

You may also control-click on the equation to bring up the contextual menu, after changing the cursor to the Arrow tool.
  • After creating or editing of equation with the external MathMagic Pro, just close the equation editor window so that the equation is placed in the InDesign document.

    • just change the cursor to the arrow cursor and move the equation box by dragging to where you desire, or
    • control-click on the equation box to bring up the contextual menu, and then select "Shift Baseline" item, or
    • select an equation box and choose "Shift Baseline" menu from the MathMagic plug-in menu
