Typed in about 10 lines of Trig Identity stuff. All nice. Sent it back to the doc. All nice. Back into MathType Added a drawn symbol -- all my work vanished :-( Started again Typed in three Trig Identities, then Small Angle Approximations. All nice. Sent it to the doc and returned to viewing the Doc. All gone again. Only wasted about an hour and a half. Realy happy with the Product (NOT).

The functionality is good...it's got tons of options. But it's pricy for what you get. I've been able to do nearly everything this does in a basic Word Processing program such as Word for years, so I resent paying for that functionality. Also, you have to open the extension each time and it's super slow. So if you need to fill out a table with multiple equations it's klunky. I want to be able to leave the extension open and move through the document adding equations as needed.

If you know latex, just use beamer and look at the 5 minute overleaf tutorial. The typesetting is poor, if you need to put more than 1 or 2 equations on a page every time you insert an equation it wipes out the textbox, and it takes 20 seconds just to load the software. The only reason I downloaded it was because my organization wouldn't let me download any other extension, but it's honestly better to just use online tools.

MathType on Google workplace - This app uses password access and compromises on my account. Extremely lousy. Stop that action now, user privacy intruder!

I supposedly had a 30-day trial, but it only worked once. Each subsequent time I opened the extension in google docs a blank MathType dialog box appeared. When it works, it is great. I have used it on my work account. I am leary to purchase for my home computer since the trial did not work.

Horrible! I cannot add the equations to a slide without everything I have already put on the slide being gone. Hate our management makes us use this horrible extension!

There is a lot less functionality that the version I used with pages. Is there any way to edit an equation once it has been placed in a google doc? If so, it is not easy to find.

For some reason I can use this even though my account permissions are managed by my school district. Love it!

I had to open the app 3 times, log in twice, just to make a basic fraction and have it delete the table I was trying to insert it into. This used to be my go-to app for math equations but now it's incredibly bloated and requires purchase after 30 days.
