Coded in... what?!

OpenOffice has a quite nice formula editor and is a full-featured "productivity suite". I made the switch a while ago and never really regreted it.

I don't cut-paste them from mathematica, true. It may not be the easiest/fastest to use, but I've seen worse (read: MS Word).

stefan, no idea, i never really used mathematica much.
rarefluid, correction: word 2003 and lower.

stefan, you got me curious, so i tried: if i "copy as.. MathML" from mathematics 5.2 and paste in word 2007, it's a working word equation that i can edit and all that, and looks pretty good, or so it seems. not sure if it does all you want though, my formulas are never very complex.

Is there similar support for Maple?

Talking about formula editors LyX has a handy one and can export to TeX.

skrebbel: I can't get it to work in Word 2008. If i just paste the Math ML it render as .. text. Same problem if i try to paste it in the equation editor. How did you do it?

Obviously you never really worked in a professional workspace before typing that cluster of characters

stefan, hmm that's weird. i just paste it, and it's an equation editor formula. plainly into an empty word document. no idea. word 2007 NL for non-commercial use.

I used Word 2008 (os x).. I guess that is the "problem" oh well.. LaTeX it is :(

I was working on a school project with NeoOffice (a mac port of OpenOffice) and well, let's just say that if it were a person, I'd never talk to him again.

Now we're using LaTex for the same project...

I found neooffice was fine. But then again, I'd prefer office 6. It gets the job done without all the extra crap :)
