* How MathMagic Pro application and MathMagic Plug-in works

1. Installing

  • Install MathMagic Pro Edition for Windows with the MathMagic Pro installer.
  • Make sure that MathMagic plug-in is installed in the following location.
    \Program Files\Adobe\InDesign CS4\Plug-ins\

2. Creating Equations

  • Launch Adobe InDesign application(2.x ~ CS4).
  • Make a new InDesign document or open a document.
  • Select the Plug-ins menu -> MathMagic sub-menu.
  • Choose "New Equation" item to create an equation.
    If the cursor is located in the text box, the equation will be inserted in the cursor position as an In-line Graphic(ILG). Otherwise, the equation will be placed as an EPS graphic on where you click the mouse.
  • 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.
    \Program Files\MathMagic Pro\MathMagic Pro 4.2 InD.exe

  • Enter any equation in the MathMagic editor window, and then Close(cmd-W) or Save(cmd-S) the window. This will send the equation to the InDesign document back.

3. Editing Equations

  • Choose "Edit Equation..." item to edit the currently selected equation. Or, just double-click on the equation box to open it with the external MathMagic Pro application for editing. 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.

  • The baseline of all equations will be automatically adjusted. But if you want to lower or raise the baseline, you may do so.
    • 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
