Can PDF/Docs (with math equations) documents be imported into Mathematica?
I think that the PDF's can only be imported as graphics. Look at the Import function in the Help, "Listing of Formats", and "Vector Graphics formats". I hope that this helps!
If you have an MS Word document with math equations created using MathType (version 6 or higher), then you can copy the formula from MathType and paste it into Mathematica Notebook. Note that such imported formula not necessarily represent a valid Mathematica formula.
Can you explain more about copying MathType into Mathematica?
I have version 6.9 of MathType and version 184.108.40.206 of Mathematica. I am not a Latex user. I am also interested in a good video on how to use the tools to use the new interface to create documents. Is there a good youtube video? Is it possible to switch between the interface and the code? I have been using mathematica since version 1.8, when a lic was more than $2,000 in 1990 or something. I have never used the interfaces.
Mathematica should have a choice of an interface the same as Word. If Mathematica allowed users to choose either text/code in a notebook, or the current Mathematica interface, or an interface that is the same as Word then the world would not need MS Word.
Later, just replace all MS Office programs.
Here is a video showing how I do this using MathType 7.4.10 and Mathematica 8.0.4:
(I simply press Ctrl+C in the MathType window, and then Ctrl+V in the Mathematica window, then I show that the formula is pasted as a Mathematica expression by selecting its parts, and finally I convert the expression into its InputForm).
How can I pause the video?
It is a GIF-animation. You can't control how it is played. But of course you can import the GIF file into Mathematica and do whatever you want with the result.
