RE: written report with equations.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


Your suggestions are very good.  I had looked at Open Office, but didn’t want to download until I was pretty certain that it would do the trick.  Hopefully this project will work into quite a few that are very similar and I can fill in blanks and make minor changes.  I also want to look at “tables” so that they can be done and modified per each similar project.  If I was a real whiz with spreadsheets I would write one that would fill in the tables (different values for wind pressures) for different site and building criteria, but sadly I am not that much of an Excel whiz.

I use Mathtype.


It is similar to the native MS version, but with better graphics and tools.  Once the “30-day” trail is over it is still fully functional (with some features limited).  I couldn’t even tell you what is limited, as I’ve never ran into any limitation in lite mode. 

MS Office 2007(?) and later have a decent built in editor. 

Open Office also comes with a good editor. 

If you’re looking for the software to do more than look pretty, but don’t feel like dropping $5k on mathematica then this list could be helpful:

They are linux based, but many have windows versions or can still be installed over windows with CYGWIN, or the likes.

If you are using Microsoft Word for your written text then look into their "Equation Editor" which is sometimes included free but often not installed in the basic setup.

Please respond to seaint






written report with equations.




This may seem a bit basic, but I am hoping I can put together a written report which will include type written equations which will show correct notations, roman numerals, superscripts, subscripts etc etc.  Just as soon not have to purchase anything.  Any suggestions?
