Mathematical typesetting in Indesign CS
0

I am working on a textbook which had a few mathematical fractions and equations in it - such as a bracketed fraction multiplied by another fraction etc. I am finding this quite difficult..

I was wondering if anyone had any advice on creating nut fractions in particular and any general tips in Indesign CS. I don't have Indesign CS 2, apparently it makes things easier for numerical data.

Many thanks
-Cheryl (new typesetter/production assistant)

PowerMath supports various versions of InDesign including an older version that covers CS2:

A plug-in like Math Magic might help.

At my day gig we use MathType. Making equations is very quick and intuitive, but placing the resulting .eps files in my InDesign documents often requires a good bit of tweaking (baselines, etc.)... Especially if you don't want to use Times.

I've been longing for a sans version of Symbol for ages now, I might just have to make it myself.
