Equation Illustrator V has been designed to ease the difficult task of combining graphics and complicated formatted text such as math equations in electronic and printed documents. A WYSIWYG interface which keeps automation to a minimum and allows you to put what you want where you want it. Formatted equation macros can be stored and retrieved with a cut and paste type interface. Selections can be sent to the Windows clipboard as Enhanced Metafiles and bitmaps or saved to file for use in www and other documents. Vector drawing functions are included from simple rectangles to regular polygons and Bezier curves. Some technology specific functions such as waves and pulses are also included, over 50 drawing tools in all. Equation Illustrator V is designed for people who know what they want and where they want it. Pixel by pixel control over formatted text allows precision alignment of equations. Fonts for special math characters and the periodic table are included in the price. This is a major update of the program and includes many improvements and additions. Full text selection with keyboard and mouse. Flicker associated with image objects eliminated. Multiline formatted equation/text storage. Unlimited number of drawn vector shapes.

Options to convert rectangular shapes into polylines/gons during rotation (includes ellipses which are converted into 'poly Beziergons'). Options to draw polar and rectangular transforms in random colours. Zooming of vector graphics. Comprehensive dimension formatting: decimal places, scientific etc. Colour reduction, anti-aliasing and rotation of bitmapped images. WMF and PNG graphic formats added.
