Inserting, creating and modifying equations have never been so easy with this new feature in ActivePresenter 7. Besides a great number of built-in equations, you can edit and build your own ones or even copy equations from Microsoft Office to ActivePresenter. Let’s get to know about that in today’s tutorial.

Inserting Equations

First, to insert a built-in equation, do one of the following:

  • Navigate to the Annotations tab > Click the drop-down arrow on the Equation button
  • Or access Home tab > Click the drop-down arrow on the Equation button

Working with equations in ActivePresenter 7 Then, select one built-in equation from the list. Types of buit-in equations At the same time, a selected equation displays on the Canvas. For example, if you select Binomial Theorem, it will appear on the Canvas like this: Example of inserting an equation And in the Tabbed Toolbar opens a Formula tab containing symbols and structures that you can add to your equation if needed.

Creating and Modifying Equations        

Besides built-in equations, you can create your own ones by doing either of the following:

  • Click the Equation icon in the tabbed toolbar.
  • Click the Insert New Equation option at the bottom of the Equation gallery.

Working with Equations in ActivePresenter 7 Then, an equation editor (a rectangle with green dots) appears on the Canvas like this: Create new equation Here you can click the Equation button at the left corner to insert built-in equations. Or start typing your equation by using a variety of symbols and structures in the Formula tab. In the Symbols group, click the arrow at the bottom right corner of the gallery (1) to see more math-related symbols. Click the arrow at the top right corner of the gallery (2) to see more sets of symbols. Hover the mouse over a symbol to see its name.

Next to the Symbols group is the Structures group containing commonly used mathematical structures such as Fraction, Script, Radical, Integral, Large Operator, Bracket, Function and more. Just select a structure to insert it and replace the dotted-line boxes with your own values. Structures Note: Apart from inserting, creating and editing equations, you can copy equations from Microsoft Office and paste into ActivePresenter.

That’s all about equations in ActivePresenter 7. From now on, you can insert, create your own equations and edit them easily. Hope this is helpful. Contact us if you need any help.
