Equation editor option for TM2002?

Post by Labcoatguy » Sat Feb 02, 2008 9:26 pm

I just downloaded a demo version of TextMaker 2002 for my Vadem Clio (MIPS, Windows CE 2.11, H/PC Pro), and I am enjoying it greatly. However, there are a few issues that are thus far preventing me from ordering the software. I am a student in math-intensive classes, and am mainly interested in the equation editor that is included in Textmaker 2006, but which was not an option for 2002. Is there any way to install the equation editor component in Textmaker 2002? The program will also sometimes freeze when opening or attempting to close dialogue boxes; I am still playing around with it to see if there is a pattern to these crashes.

I would recommend a search on this topic. I remember talking to a fellow about this in November/December. He is a math teacher. He actually found a math editor that he was able to use to TM because of his additional needs. That might be an idea. As for 2002, that is getting a bit old, did you consider looking at 2008? or 2006 for the pocket version. I THINK that there are efforts making a 2008 version as well.
Cheers

Thanks for your reply. Sadly, any options beyond TM 2002 are restricted because my platform, a Windows CE 2.11 machine on a MIPS processor, doesn't support TM 2006; I've tried, and it told me that it doesn't support my CPU. I think your other correspondent was referring to MathType, which is also unsupported on my platform. Thanks for your help though.

I see... I'm sorry I couldn't offer more assistance.

Our math editor works using OLE, which is available on desktop Windows only. Windows CE doesn't have OLE support, so you cannot use our equation editor on Windows CE devices.
