I was sooo excited to see this add-on, because adding equations into Google Docs needs to be improved, but it's really lacking. MathType's power comes from the keyboard shortcuts and LaTeX support. Unfortunately this is just another WYSIWYG equation editor. The handwriting recognition is a good idea, but needs an eraser for when it messes up. And when my integral was finally inserted, it did not look anything like it had in the WYSIWYG window. The three stars are because it's OK for what it is, but don't expect anything nearly as good as MathType is.

haven't been able to edit the equations after inserting them. That would make this so much better

I can not remove it! I have tried 2 different ways and it will not go away. I tried through Google Chrome drop menu, more tools, extensions and it didn't show up. I then tried to manage add-ons directly through Google Docs, add-ons tab, which I am currently using to write this review, and it won't go away.

How can I convert a word document including MathType equations to a GoogleDoc? PS. I have tons of word docs with hundreds of equations, tried to convert equations using Google Doc (documents) translater v1.00 by Design Science. It didn't work !

Been using this almost everyday for a year now it is really helpful. I just wonder why there's no strikethrough on the editor when bold and italics are there. It would have been great since we can "cancel" units when doing calculations

As an elementary school teacher this add-on is great for to create Docs for my students that provide the same mathematical symbols as our curriculum resource. It's virtually impossible to obtain the mathematical symbols in Docs without this add-on.

Same complain as everyone here: Image definition is too low. That's sad as the editor is great. If you're looking for really good formulae rendering, checkout Auto-Latex Equations (yep, sorry guys, this is good old LaTex).

if you don't use any keyboard shortcuts, this might be for you! wanted to use it, but can't--as I've spent years learning the shortcuts (just like I did for WordStar in DOS!). I suppose, just like me, shortcuts will be dead. I really do love MathType--but just as a desktop app (and not subscription). I suppose I'll use version 6 until something kills off the ability to.

It is good but often terribly slow to reopen the same equation. Also there is upper limit on a size of equation that is also quite annoying. AND last BUT not least, it is blurish on macOS !!!
