MathType now works with Office 2016 for Windows, Mac Office 2016 soon...
If you are using Microsoft Office 2016 for Windows, or if you have been waiting to upgrade Office until MathType was compatible, we're happy to announce there is a new update to MathType 6.9 that is compatible. If you own MathType 6.9 for Windows, download the free update. If your copy of MathType is older than version 6.9, you can purchase the upgrade from our website. If you are using Office 2016 for Windows, you do actually need the upgrade to MathType 6.9, but there is plenty of new functionality -- check out our MathType page for all the details.
What's the story with MathType and Mac Office 2016?
Some of you have been asking about MathType's compatibility with the recently released Mac Office 2016. Microsoft decided to make Mac Office 2016 compatible with Apple's Mac App Store which imposes security restrictions that affect communication between applications, preventing MathType from working with Mac Office 2016 applications such as Word and PowerPoint. Our engineers are working with Microsoft engineers on a solution but it will take some time before it will be available. We will keep you informed as we get closer to release. In the meantime, MathType 6.7 for Mac still works great with Office 2011 for Mac, Apple Pages and 800+ other applications of websites.
Thank you for your patience while this is being worked on. And thank you for continuing to use MathType.
