* How MathMagic Pro application and MathMagic Plug-in works

Please refer to the User Guide manual for the details: III. 8 Using MathMagic Plug-in in Adobe InDesign.

1. Installing

• Make sure that MathMagic plug-in is manually installed in the following location.

2. Creating Equations

• Launch Adobe InDesign CC (or CSx) application.
• Make a new InDesign document or open a document.
• Choose "New Equation" item to create an equation.
If the cursor is located in the text box, the equation will be inserted in the cursor position as an In-line Graphic(ILG). Otherwise, the equation will be placed as an EPS graphic on where you click the mouse.
• You may select the Sigma tool button from the floating main toolbar to create an equation box, and then drag a rectangle in the document to specify the location of an equation once created by the external MathMagic Pro.
• You may also control-click(or right button click) while the cursor is in the text box, so that you can choose the "New Equation" from the contextual menu.
• If you either select "New Equation" menu or drag a rectangle with th Sigma tool, MathMagic Pro application will be launched, if not running already, and an empty equationd editor window will be opened. In case MathMagic Pro application is not launched automatically within a few seconds, please launch the application manually from the following location.
:Applications:MathMagic Pro Edition:

• Enter any equation in the MathMagic editor window, and then Close(cmd-W) or Save(cmd-S) the window. This will send the equation to the InDesign document back.

3. Editing Equations

• Choose "Edit Equation..." item to edit the currently selected equation. Or, just double-click on the equation box to open it with the external MathMagic Pro application for editing. You may also control-click on the equation to bring up the contextual menu, after changing the cursor to the Arrow tool.
• After creating or editing of equation with the external MathMagic Pro, just close the equation editor window so that the equation is placed in the InDesign document.

4. Changing the Baseline and Bounding margins

• The baseline of all equations will be automatically adjusted. But if you want to lower or raise the baseline, you may do so.
• just change the cursor to the arrow cursor and move the equation box by dragging to where you desire, or
• control-click on the equation box to bring up the contextual menu, and then select "Shift Baseline" item, or
• select an equation box and choose "Shift Baseline" menu from the MathMagic plug-in menu
• You may also customize the bounding margin gaps(left, right, top, bottom) of the equation, by specifying other value from the last item of Define Spacing window.

5. Applying a StyleSet to equations in InDesign document

• Or, select one equation, or drag-select a range of text to include multiple equations, or select a Text box, then go to Plug-ins - MathMagic - Apply StyleSet command.
• Select one StyleSet from the list. Then, specify the scope to apply the StyleStyle: the selection equation, the current Text box, the current Page, or the whole document. Then, click "Apply".
• The maximum number to Apply a StyleSet is 100 equations at a time. If the selected range includes more than 100, please select smaller area and try again.
• If multiple equations are in the specified area, it may take a while to apply a StyleSet to all the equations in the scope.
• If no equation is found in the specified area, or if more than 100 equations, there will be an error message.
• After applying a StyleSet to all specified equations, there will be a Completion message with the total applied number of equations.
