Thank you Sweaty for your trying and comments on MathMagic. I am one of the developers of MathMagic.
There are some differences between MathType and MathMagic in UI and features. In overall, I believe that MathMagic is better than MathType even though for a certain feature you may still count for MathType. If you like, I would like to make a comparision chart for you. MathMagic runs natively on Mac OS X with Aqua UI.
Regarding the limitation of the printing(1 page), there is no page size limit so you can print a big one page. But position for MathMagic was to make it work well with other word processors and DTP software. So you can create any size of equations and use them within other layout software to print multiple pages and make books. We will be the best in creating beautiful equations fast and then let the other software do their best with our equations in layouting, printing, or presentation.
It IS, however, in our future spec candidate list with low priority and it can be supported some that next year, I guess.
There are thousands of paid customers around the world already and some education districts/countis upgraded their Mathtype software to MathMagic already.(Most of them are Mac OS X users, though.)
For the pricing, our marketing team spent some time to compare all the features and prices of our competitors, and then decided the MathMagic price to be competitive in the market. Our pricing also includes 2-year free upgrades(after 2 year, you can use the last version continuously), which is our promise to improve the product continuously and then make you subscribe a new version happily. If you check, you can find that we have released updates and upgrades quite often(once a month ~ quarter basis) over the last year, while MathType 3.7 did not for years.
But we are open to launch a promotional price from time to time to give more chances to use MathMagic to vertical markets, and also we can consider to change the price if it demands.
If you are interested in trying MathMagic in more detail, we are more than happy to provide you a Serial # so that you can try MathMagic for a few years. Please just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personally I believe that it is worth just to try MathMagic for 30 minutes if you are a heavy equation players so that you can see how much time you can save with MathMagic.
If you are alreay MathType user, just 10 minutes will be enough to tell the difference and see whether MathMagic will fit for you.
I appreciate your time in trying MathMagic again. Any comments are appreciated.
