Ebooks, equations, MathType

I’m test driving Scrivener. I like it a lot so far. I am having some problems with exporting to the ebook format.

I will use Scrivener mainly for writing a technical book that includes quite a few equations. I’m using MathType.

The problem I’m having is that I don’t know how to control how big the images will be when I open the ebook in, say, kindle or my ipad.

In my experiments the images for equations are:

  1. too big
  2. more annoying, or different sizes

thanks in advance for any help,


Images in e-books should appear the same size as they are in the editor. Is the font consistent in all of your MathType images?

Also, what type of e-book are you generating, and what software or hardware are you using to preview them?

Yes the font is consistent but when I have a single equation the font is larger than when I have 2 or 3.

How do I control the final size? The way it looks now the equations are 3 or 4 types larger than the text.

I’m compiling an epub book. I’m previewing in Ibooks in an ipad.
