The WIRIS MathType Equations Editor requires a separate license. 

Contact your Jama Software® Success Manager to:  

  • Inquire about purchasing a license. 

  • Convert existing WIRIS MathType named licenses to float licenses. Self-hosted and Airgap environments with named licenses must complete this conversion before upgrading to Jama Connect 8.66.

Note: In Cloud environments, WIRIS MathType availability isn't impacted by this change.    

MathType and ChemType buttons are now visible to all creator users from any Rich Text Editor. 

  • Depending on license availability, creator users obtain a license by opening the equation editor. 

  • Close the equation editor to return the license to the floating pool.
