# MathType Alternatives

MathType is described as 'powerful interactive equation editor for Windows and Macintosh that lets you create mathematical notation for word processing, web pages, desktop publishing, presentations, elearning, and for TeX, LaTeX, and MathML documents' and is an app in the Education & Reference category. There are more than 25 alternatives to MathType for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Online / Web-based and Self-Hosted solutions. The best alternative is LibreOffice - Math, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like MathType are Overleaf (Freemium, Open Source), fxSolver (Free), TexMaths (Free, Open Source) and AxMath (Paid).

- Math is the LibreOffice suite's formula editor, that can be invoked in your text documents, spreadsheets, presentations and drawings, to enable you to insert perfectly-formatted mathematical and scientific formulas.

##### Overleaf vs MathType opinions

It does have the ability to edit equations, albeit via LaTeX. And it is a really lovely tool!As far as I know, Overleaf is very convenient (I use it a lot) but has no graphical editing of formulas. - Online math solver, equation library, graphing calculator and science/engineering problem helper.
- TexMaths is an addon designed to provide LaTeX support into LibreOffice. LaTeX equations can be inserted as images (SVG or PNG formats) and the LaTeX code is saved into the image attribute for further editing.
- Free • Open Source
- Mac
- Windows
- Linux
- LibreOffice

- AxMath is a powerful interactive equation editor for multiple purposes. AxMath lets you create complex equations at ease. With sementic math you can type any equations at lightspeed without using a mouse. Still confusing with Word, MathType, LaTeX, Lyx, TexMacs...?

Almost all the features of mathtype are available with Axmath. Price is also very less - KLatexFormula is an easy-to-use graphical application for generating images (that you can drag and drop, copy and paste or save to disk) from LaTeX equations. It is written in Qt4.
- JMathEdit is an equation editor that helps editing complex mathematical expressions with ease.
##### JMathEdit vs MathType opinions

it is a very bad interface not user friendly at allA good free alternative for ubuntu... easy to use, much better than LibreOffice equation editor - Getting your research published is tough. You face complex author guidelines, painful citation formatting, messy email collaboration, frustrating word templates, and long drawn submission processes. The good news? Typeset makes it easy.
- EqualX Equation Editor - is a powerful interactive tool that lets you create mathematical notation for word processing, web pages, desktop publishing, presentations in TeX, LaTeX
- Math, part of the Apache OpenOffice suite, is a tool for creating and editing mathematical equations, similar to Microsoft Equation Editor (included in Microsoft Office). The created equations can then be embedded inside other OpenOffice.
##### Apache OpenOffice Math vs MathType opinions

Has minimal and generally useless mathematical formulae and/or symbols.
