The new math editor supports the editing and display of LaTeX formulas. In display mode, the formulas display normally. In editing mode, the LaTeX for the formulas displays. LaTeX formulas can be edited directly using LaTeX or by clicking in the formula and opening the WIRIS editor for true WYSIWYG editing. When you save the formula, it is not converted and retains its LaTeX origin. This is useful for users who have libraries of LaTeX formulas. You can simply copy-paste a formula into the editor for reuse or as the basis for new formula.
WIRIS provides the math formula editing capabilities of the Content Editor that was introduced in SP 10. In SP 10, the WIRIS plugin was delivered as a Java Applet, which meant that math editing was not available to all platforms because java virtual machine capabilities were required on the target platform.
The editor is backward compatibility with existing WebEq, WIRIS 2.0 formulas and ensures proper formula compatibility in CE4, Vista, and ANGEL course conversion.
