• Ink Equations
• Professional
• linear
• Normal text

Equation option has some ready formulas and Equations which has already made and save there. You can select them and rewrite them according to your need and use them in your documents.

• Geometry

Structures are the Icons of our Main Group in This Article

In this Group, we have some basics Categories that Help us to make our Equations, in these eleventh structures, we can make our Favorite Equations and Formulas. Here we have not any limit for our task because they work like a format that we are entering our Idea here to make our Formula.

Here we have various Equations, now as an example, i write a Formula. For writing your formula here, just you need to click on your favorite format then click on the square to fill in the blanks. In this example step by step, we are going on to reached the Sixth step.
