    hi all,

    i'm giving a try to iwork this weekend. i can't figure how to write equations in

    pages. i used to do my scientific papers in word using equation editor.

    is there something similar for pages ? even as a plugin or a 3rd party

    application ? please note that i do not know TEX or LATEX.

    I don' know of any built-in equation editor. I use MathType (It's a bit rough round the edges - PPC) but it does the job.

    And it's not free :(

    MathMagic equation editor works with Pages

    You can Copy&Paste or Drag&drop equations from MathMagic window to Pages, or vice a versa for re-editing.

    Inserted equations are automatically baselined to Pages text line if inserted as an Inline graphic.

    Free trial is available here:

    Hope this helps.
