View formulas as real math equations

See your formulas in symbolic math notation. Fully customizable to match exactly how you'd like to see it.

Greek letters, subscripts & superscripts

The equations display math-friendly formats, displaying Greek letters etc.

If named ranges or ‘cells to the left’ contain the name of a Greek letter, such as alpha, beta, pi etc. then the equation will display the Greek symbol instead.

Greek letters can also be written with a leading ‘\’ eg: \pi, \alpha. In fact, if a cell’s value is a sentence that includes Greek letters, then the letter names MUST be preceeded with ‘\’, otherwise they will be ignored.  

Friendly reference names

Customize how referenced cells are displayed. Instead of B23, see: Address, Name, Value, Cell to the left, Formatted value, Table header.

Copy, save equations as images

Copy or save equations to paste elsewhere into Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, or other Microsoft Office applications.

Copy or save as an equation object or as a image (PNG).

Insert auto-updating math equations for your formulas

Live equations (or static)

Document your formulas by adding live (auto-updating) equations to your worksheet.

Add the equation displayed in the Math Equation viewer to the current worksheet. ‘Live’ equations will auto-update when the cell’s formula changes.

Static (non-live) equations won’t auto-update when the underlying formula changes.  

Write Greek letters, subscripts, superscripts quickly

Finally, a way to enter Greek letters, sub-scripts and super-scripts into cells in seconds, without needing to open the symbol editor or the font-dialog. This is especially useful when entering mathematical and scientific names.

Greek letters

Enter Greek letters quicker than ever by just typing the name eg: 'alpha' then right-click 'Transform'If named ranges or ‘cells to the left’ contain the name of a Greek letter, such as alpha, beta, pi etc. then the equation will display the Greek symbol instead.  

Sub-scripts and super-scripts

Convert ‘_’ and ‘^’ into subscripts and superscripts with one click by right-clicking the cell(s) then click 'Transform'.

Plot any formula

Just point at a formula and create the plot - no need to create a data-series of values.


Any cell referenced in the formula can be selected as the Y-axis. 

Multiple plots

Multiple plots can be added to the same display – variants of one cell (different references as Y-axis), or other formulas from other cells. 

Create & update Word documents from Excel

Insert formulas and values

Choose and insert cells, their formulas, names, descriptions etc. into Word documents.

Live auto-updates

Auto-update the Word document when the underlying cells change value. Your Word document is always up-to-date.

Engineering calculation sheets

Perfect for engineers to document their calculations and formulas.
