* How MathMagic Pro application and MathMagic XTension works

1. Installing

  • Install MathMagic Pro Edition for Windows with the MathMagic Pro for QuarkXPress installer.
  • Make sure that MathMagic XTension is installed in the following location.
    \Program Files\QuarkXPress\XTensions\

2. Creating Equations

  • Launch QuarkXPress application(6.5, 7.x or 8.0).
  • Make a new document or open a document.
  • Go to MathMagic menu in the QuarkXPress menubar.
  • 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 QuarkXPress's 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 application.
  • 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 popup 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 specify the path to MathMagic Pro for QXP application from MathMagic XTension's Preferences dialog box. The path should be in the following if not specified otherwise when installing.
    \Program Files\MathMagic Pro\MathMagic Pro 3.6 QXP.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 QuarkXPress document back.

3. Editing Equations

  • Choose "Edit Equation..." item to edit the currently selected equation. Or, just right-click on the equation box to open it with the external MathMagic Pro application for editing. Please note that QuarkXPress does not allow double-clicking on the equation to re-edit it. Double-clicking will led to its internal handling process rather than opening it directly from MathMagic.
  • 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 QuarkXPress document.

  • The baseline of all equations will be automatically adjusted. If you want to lower or raise the baseline, however, 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 XTension menu.

* System Requirements
  • Pentium or Faster
  • Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, NT, Vista
  • QuarkXPress 6.1 ~ QuarkXPress 8
  • About 15MB of hard disk space for a complete installation

* Installation
  • If this is the first time to install a MathMagic,
    • Please download the Full Installer
    • Double click on the installer icon to begin and proceed the installation.
    • This is to install a required DLL library and some other components.
  • Once you have installed a MathMagic recently,
    • You can just download the latest version of MathMagic Pro application.
    • You may need to download the latest fonts as well if updated.
    • Unzip the downloaded application, and the copy it to
      \Program Files\MathMagic Pro Edition\
  • If MathMagic XTension is updated,
    • please download the MathMagic XTension and the copy the correct version(for 6.5 ~ 8.0) to
      \Program Files\QuarkXPress\XTensions\
  • Please NOTE that MathMagic Pro for QXP application works only with its accompanying MathMagic XTensions, while MathMagic Pro for InD application only works with its MathMagic Plug-ins.
    So, if you need to work with both InDesign and QuarkXPress, you need to install both MathMagic Pro for InDesign and MathMagic Pro for QuarkXPress separately.
