For those reviewers who tout LaTeX, you should know that they are techies who love messing around with computers as opposed to getting their main work done. LaTeX is a markup language that does not let you even see how your program will look without going through a separate rendering stage; in the meantime, you are looking at gobbledygook expressions. With all respect to to Donald Knuth whose TeX is the basis for LaTeX, pleasejoin the twentieth (that is, 20th) century. If you really want to use TeX or LaTeX, GraphEQ will politely export in that format. But in the meantime, you get to set your equations using common GUI techniques.

Still, if you can't tell the difference between the output from Microsoft Word's Equation Editor (which MathEQ resembles to a frightening degree: maybe they have common parentage?) and an equation typeset in latex then I wish you luck... If you can, and appreciate the extra quality of the output, then the "techy" barrier to using latex will look trivial.

Suppose in addition, you find it necessary to change your notation to improve clarity. With TeX you change one macro and the rest follows. No graphical equation setter can do that. If you have many equations the scope for error [not to mention the amount of work] is huge in a graphical interface.
Bottom line is that graphical systems are OK for occasional equations and where the best typesetting is not required, but for anything more complex or professional, TeX is a must.

Just an advice from a satisfied TeX user...
