The example equation that is going to be transformed has the form

$latex a = b \cdot c_{d}$ (1)

**Importing an Equation from a $latex \LaTeX$ document **

**Transforming the $latex \LaTeX$ code** To make $latex \LaTeX$ code usable in MOSAICmodeling

- Select the
`Equation Editor`in the Editor Bar on the left hand side. - Click at the arrow of the combo box to the left of the
`[Import]`button and select`LaTeX 2.09`from the list. - Click
`[Import]`to open the transform dialog. - Copy the equation out of the $latex \LaTeX$ document and paste it into the text field. Alternatively, you can use the following code

a=b\times c_d

- Click
`[Submit]`to transform the equation into MosaicLatex and to close the transform dialog. The transformed equation appears in the field MosaicLaTeX. The equation is now transformed into MosaicLaTeX. Continue to import the equation in the usual way described in tutorials.

**Importing an Equation from MathType**

MathType is a software that allows to improved editing of mathematic content in Microsoft Word. It also provides an export functionality to Latex 2.09, which can be used to export equations written in Word to MOSAICmodeling

**Preparing MathType** Before mathematic expressions can be copied to MOSAICmodeling the following steps have to be done in MathType.

- Start MathType
- Click
`[Preferences]`in the menu bar - Click
`[Translators]`in the drop down menu `Select Translation to other language (text)`. Select`TeX - $latex \LaTeX$`as translator.

2.09 and later

Equations in the MathType window are now translated to $latex \LaTeX$ 2.09 when

they are copied.

**Creating and Using an equation**

- Create or open a Word equation in MathType
- Follow the instructions from the first section with the following difference:
- Instead of copying a Latex expression, select and copy the whole symbolic expression within MathType.
- Hint: There will be additional code pasted along with the equation which will be shown in the text field of the transform dialog. This code will be removed automatically during the export.

**Importing an Equation from Word 2007**

First create a Word document with equation(1) by yourself.

**Transforming the Word code into MosaicLatex**

- Select the Equation Editor in the Editor Bar on the left hand side.
- Click at the arrow of the combo box to the left of the
`[Import]`button and select`Word 2007`from the list. - Click
`Import`to open the transform dialog. - Copy the equation out of the Word document and paste it into the text field.
- Click
`[Submit]`to transform the equation into MosaicLatex and to close the transform dialog. The transformed equation appears in the`field MosaicLatex`.
