If you haven’t noticed already there’s been an update to Promethean Activ Inspire.  We’re now on to version 1.6.

The birth of Activ Inspire (the replacement for Activ Studio) meant that we lost a lot of cool features that have been slowly creeping back.  I’m really happy to see that the equation editor is back! Finally!  I know a lot of maths teachers who were refusing to upgrade from studio V3 to Inspire because this feature didn’t exist any more in the new release.   The good news is that functionality of the new equation editor is even better than the old one!

The Maths Equation Editor is Back!

Once you have the upgrade you’ll find the editor in the “insert” menu.  If it’s something that you’re likely to use all of the time, you can, of course, add it to your tool bar too.  Just head, as usual to view and then customise so that you can add it in.

What does it let you do? Selecting the “Equation” tool, and tapping somewhere on your page, brings up an equation editor screen. By selecting options from the icon menus at the top and typing in numbers you can easily create some really simple and more complex equations/ maths problems for your class to solve.

I love that this has returned and (unlike SMARTS tool) it’s a FREE add-on.  No extra bundles to pay for here!

It also offers and Embedded Web browser (a little like the browser widget in Easiteach Next Generation) and support for  vertical text when using Asian languages.

What is a shame is that Promethean still haven’t added support for the Common File Format.  They really are the only ones not doing it now… Come on Dev team… we’re cheering you on!

How do I get the upgrade?

    how can I change the font and size in the equation editor?

      To make the font bigger you should be able to use the select tool (the black arrow). Click on the object you’ve created with the editor and use the circle in the bottom right hand corner to make it larger – just left click and drag.

      I thought that the font might change with the settings for text (found by hitting the T menu) but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Nor can I see any settings in the software options. My guess is, as yet, you can’t change the font. I’ll see what I can find out though.

      In the meantime, if anyone else has found the answer to the second part please feel free to share 🙂
