MathType 101 – Maria H. Andersen busynessgirl.com/resources/handouts 1 MathType 101, Lesson 0: Creating the CtrlE Hotkeys Creating the CtrlE Hotkeys for Opening and Closing Equations You should only have to do this ONCE for each computer. Directions for Office 2010: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dutBZJNn1bA Directions for Office 2007: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozo4FrEhB30 Directions for Office 2003: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsLtOoGTZKY Note to Mac users: The CMDE hotkey is reserved in the system, so please use CTRLE. Creating the CtrlE Hotkey to OPEN an equation: 1. Open Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010 2. Click on the Office button (upper lefthand corner) 3. Click Word Options (lower part of the window) 4. Inside Word Options, choose Customize from the lefthand menu options 5. By Keyboard Shortcuts (bottom of panel) click Customize… button 6. In the lefthand list, scroll down to where you see Macros and choose that 7. Under Macros (on right), scroll down and select MTCommandInsertInlineEqn 8. Where it says “Press new shortcut key” click in the box and then type Ctrl+E 9. Click the Assign button 10. Close the Customize Keyboard window, then Okay in the Word Options window Creating the CtrlE Hotkey to CLOSE an equation: 1. In Word 2007 or 2010, use CtrlE to open a MathType equation 2. Go to the Preferences tab and choose Customize Keyboard 3. Open the list of commands for Menu Commands (click the +), then File Menu 4. Select Close and Return to 5. Click in the box called Enter new shortcut key(s) and type CtrlE 6. Click the Assign button 7. Exit the Customize Keyboard window NOW TRY IT! This would be a good time to go ahead and create the Ctrl+E hotkeys for opening and closing MathType windows. You will only have to do this once, and then the settings will be saved.
