Mathtype equations conversion

open-issue

#1

Conversion of docx files with Mathtype equations is not done properly (by Uploading docx to docx2Latex website)

There are some ways to fix this:

  • I have written a macro which converts Mathtype equations to MS word equations, then we can use Doc2Latex for conversion to Latex: https://github.com/aminya/Amin-MSWord-VBA-macros#mathtype2word

  • Another way is to convert Mathtype equations to Latex inside MS word (Mathtype has a macro for this). But Doc2Latex should have some logic to detect the equations that are between \[ \] and $ $, and not convert them to simple text, and instead to math equations. In Google doc addon, the user can inter Latex blocks for these, but it is time-consuming and manual.

  • Fix the direct conversion errors.

Now without any change Mathtype equations like this:

are converted to this:

Also, equations numbers are ignored which is another problem!

Thank you for your concern @Amin_Yahyaabadi. This is known issue since long time and we are working on it this week. We will try and see how we can integrate this with our system.
