Inserting, creating and modifying mathematical equations has never been so easy with ActivePresenter 8. 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.

Insert Built-in Equations

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

  • Navigate to the Home tab > Click the drop-down arrow on the Equation button.
  • Access the Insert tab > Click the drop-down arrow on the Equation button.
Access the Insert tab > Click the drop-down arrow on the Equation button.

Then, select one built-in equation from the gallery.

Select one built-in equation from the gallery.

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:

Also, the Equation tab appears in the Tabbed Toolbar. It contains symbols and structures that you can add to your equation if needed. You will see more details of this tab in the next part below.

Write and Modify Your Own Equations        

Besides built-in equations, you can create your own ones by using symbols and structures in the Equation tab mentioned earlier. Do the following:

Step 1: Click the Equation icon in the Home tab or the Insert tab. Alternatively, click the Insert New Equation option at the bottom of the Equation gallery.

Click the Equation icon in the Home tab or the Insert tab.

After that, a rectangle with green dots appears on the Canvas like this:

A rectangle with green dots that appears on the Canvas enables you to write your own equation.

Step 2: In the Equation tab that appears, insert a mathematical structure you want to use in the Structures group. 

Insert a mathematical structure you want to use in the Structures group.

It contains commonly used mathematical structures such as Fraction, Script, Radical, Integral, Large Operator, Bracket, Function and more. Then, just select a structure to insert it and replace the dotted-line boxes with your own values.

Step 3: You can also add values to selected structures with symbols in the Symbols group. 

You can also add values to selected structures with symbols in the Symbols group.

Click the arrow at the bottom right corner of the gallery (1) to see more math-related symbols. In addition, click the arrow at the top right corner of the gallery (2) to see more sets of symbols. Then, hover the mouse over a symbol to see its name.

Note: Apart from inserting, writing and editing equations, you can copy equations from Microsoft Office and paste them into ActivePresenter 8.

That’s all about equations in ActivePresenter 8. 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.
