Just an idea: Something like TexMath (entering equations using latex) for Libreoffice would be very very useful.

### Re: Equation Editor for Linux Versions

I tried inserting an OLE frame with a libreoffice equation. I showed the libreoffice math application, I entered an equation and went back to textmaker but the frame is empty. It would have been a nice alternative to be able to insert libreoffice equations.

### Re: Equation Editor for Linux Versions

I have been waiting for the equation editor or some sort of solution for years. I wanted to buy to help this kind of effort to provide other options for word processing. However, the lack of equation editor has prevented me to do so. Perhaps they should do a crowdfunding campaign to sponsor the integration or development of an equation editor.

### Re: Equation Editor for Linux Versions

The lack of equation editor in TextMaker is definitely huge drawback of the program which could costs you a lot of technical- and scientific-oriented users.

I purchased Office for Linux for the sake of compatibility with my MS-Office bound colleagues, and I like the level of compatibility that SoftMaker office provides. But, really, I am blocked now, because most of my texts contain formulas.

There is a new equation editor named JMathEdit, which is free on Linux platforms. It supports LaTeX, MathML and can export SVG, EPS, EMF and PNG.
