Latex equation editor for Word and PowerPoint

If you use Latex, usually you hate the equation editor that is built in Microsoft office. One of the miserable factors is that, though the Microsoft office suit has been in the market for more than 20 years, Microsoft failed to provide a decent mathematical equation editor for the academics. In this post, I would like to share the tools I use for Word and PowerPoint.

Both TexSword and IguanaTex have been tested with Office 2010 and they work well.


  1. Have you tried IguanaTeX with PowerPoint 2013?

    1. No, but the official website it support 2013 version.

  2. Hi,

    Sereral days ago, I can run IguanaTeX and Texsword. But now only IguanaTeX works. Texsword can not run. When I click the "Run latex" button, I got the message: something went wrong? try again!

    Could you please offer some help? Thanks!
