MathMagic Pro 5.3 Improves LaTeX, ASCIIMath Support
InfoLogic has released MathMagic Pro 7.12 for Mac OS X and 5.3 for Windows.
MathMagic Pro is a math notation plugin for Adobe InDesign and XTension for QuarkXPress, as well as a standalone equation editor. It's designed for typesetting expressions (for worksheets, technical documents, and other applications) rather than solving equations. There's also a Personal edition, a stand-alone editor with a WYSIWYG interface for creating mathematical expressions for use with word processors and presentation software.
The latest releases of the Pro editions, version 7.12 for Mac OS X and version 5.3 for WIndows, adds support for setting trailing and leading line spaces and includes improvements for color handling in the areas of spot colors and overprint controls in EPS documents. It also gains improved support for LaTeX and ASCIIMath. (The version for QuarkXPress on Mac OS X is still at 7.11 and was released late last month.)
The full edition of MathMagic Pro runs $299 for an academic license ($499 non-academic license). The Mac edition requires Mac OS X 10.4 through 10.6 and supports Adobe InDesign CS through CS5 and QuarkXPress 6 through 8. The Windows edition requires Windows XP, Vista, or 7 and supports Adobe InDesign CS2 through CS5 and QuarkXPress 6 through 8. Further information can be found here.
