MathType for Blackboard - Math editor

MathType is a WYSIWYG formula editor designed to streamline the process of writing mathematical equations. It is a powerful tool that allows composing any math expression with high graphics quality while remaining simple and easy to learn.
WIRIS EDITOR was rebranded as MathType in March 2018. MathType 7 is a merge of classical MathType, WIRIS EDITOR and new apps developed for Google and Office Online.

Click or tap the MathType icon in the editor toolbar. If you don't see the MathType icon, click the down icon to expand to the full toolbar, then you should see it.

If you want to modify an existing equation, select it and click or tap the MathType icon. After writing or modifying the formula, click Accept if you want to insert the formula as shown, or Cancel if you want to exit without saving changes.

Equations are treated as any other kind of object:
  • You can select an equation by either clicking it or by moving the cursor over it while holding the SHIFT key.
  • You can erase formulae by selecting them and pressing delete, or move the cursor after (before) them and press the delete (Delete) key. If you delete a formula accidentally, you can recover it by clicking the undo icon, or pressing CTRL + Z.
  • You can cut, copy, and paste formulae in the usual way by pressing CTRL+X, CTRL+Ctrl, and CTRL+V. This is particularly useful when you have to write several formulae which are very similar. You can apply all of those operations to a single formula or to combinations of formulae and text, and you can paste to other MathType windows.
  • You can also drag&drop a formula using the mouse.
