To add mathematics, such as equations, there are two available math editors in Paligo. Learn how to switch between them, see Choose a Math Editor.

MathQuill is the default builtin math editor in Paligo. To learn how to use it, see Use the BuiltIn Math Editor.

MathType provides more advanced mathematical features and requires a Wiris MathType subscription. This is available on the Enterprise plan . To learn how to access it, see Use the MathType Editor.
Paligo's builtin editor MathQuill is the default math editor. It is free to use and you can use it to create simple equations. If you need to use more complex equations, you can switch to the MathType editor instead, although this does require a Wiris MathType subscription.
Note
The MathType editor is backwardscompatible with the builtin editor, so you can switch between them if needed.
To choose which math editor to use:

Select the topic or component in the Content Manager to open it in the Editor.

Select Editor settings in the toolbar.

Paligo displays the Editor Settings dialog.

Select the Editing tab.

Scroll down to the MathType Editor section.

Select Use the Mathtype editor for editing math expression box to choose the math editor you want to use for your topics:

Check the box if you want to use MathType.

Clear the box if you want to use Paligo's builtin math editor.
