    I've used MathType with Pages without any issues for quite a while now. Until very recently, the process for inserting an equation into a document was very straightforward:
    1. Within Pages, I would choose Insert > MathType Equation and MathType would launch.
    2. I would create the equation from within MathType
    3. I would hit the red 'close window' button in the MathType window
    4. MathType would close immediately and the equation would be in my Pages document.

    All of a sudden, the behavior has changed: now when I attempt to close MathType, I get the typical "document save" dialog. To insert an equation, I now have to save the equation and then import it using the Insert > Choose menu options from within Pages.

    Here's what I've tried so far:
    • Uninstall/Reinstall MathType
    • Trying from within other apps (e.g Keynote)
    • Pulled MathType and Pages plists

    Any suggestions for troubleshooting?

    Thanks,

    Something similar happened to me, but with Keynote. I tried the same things as you. Restarting my MBP solved the problem.
