Love the shortcuts

Comment by dekolta
about MathType Apr 2013

What I really love about MathType is that it has these shortcuts. Instead of most equation-writers that I know, you have to use mostly the mouse. It is easy that you can use Ctrl+F for fractions, Ctrl+g for greek symbols and so on. Everytime, you click something you can also easily what the shortcut is at the bottom for future use.
