All MicroPower units will support
the Optical RPM Sensor without a

remains available as a fallback option
for occasions where the user forgets a

Rapid-Pi also includes a comprehensive User Guide and a Symbols
Reference, providing detailed
information about all features and
symbols supported by Raid-Pi.
Rapid-Pi supports a wide range of
mathematical symbols and expressions, including all symbols supported by the Equation Editor.
Rapid-Pi integrates with
Microsoft Word (version 2000 or
later), allowing users to insert a
Rapid-Pi object into a Word document with one click.
Rapid-Pi also has an
AutoSuggest facility which allows
the user to quickly correct misspelled keywords. When a keyword is
misspelled, Rapid-Pi underlines it
with a red squiggly line. Right-click-ing on the keyword displays a list of
Rapid-Pi requires Microsoft

Trident Software Pty Ltd. now
offers Rapid-Pi, an equation
editing add-on for Microsoft Word.
Rapid-Pi provides a new, faster way
of creating and editing mathematical
formulas and equations in
Microsoft Equation Editor (often
referred to simply as “the Equation
Editor”) is an equation editing program that comes with Microsoft Word.
Equation Editor supports a variety of
mathematical symbols and is very
easy to use. Unfortunately, editing
math with the Equation Editor can
become a highly time-consuming
process for regular users.
Equation Editor requires users to
go through toolbars and menus to
insert symbols one by one, like beads
on a string. Math teachers, students,
and others who frequently create
documents containing mathematical
expressions often find that writing
math using the Equation Editor can
be unacceptably slow.
Rapid-Pi provides a faster way to
input equations and formulas.
Mathematical expressions can be
entered as easy-to-understand text.
For example, the user can type
“(y+2)/x^2” to create a fraction
containing “y + 2” in the numerator
and x-squared in the denominator.
Rapid-Pi’s text-based input is
similar to that used by graphing calculators and so will be instantly familiar
to most math students and teachers.
While Rapid-Pi’s input method
does require some initial learning,
this investment is soon paid off with
ongoing time savings.
Few people have time to read a
User Manual. That’s why Rapid-Pi
comes with a short “Getting Started
Guide” that covers the most common
expressions and symbols and allows
the user to start editing math with
Rapid-Pi in as little as five minutes.
Rapid-Pi also has a symbols toolbar containing all symbols and expressions supported by Rapid-Pi. If a user
needs to enter a particular symbol for
the first time, the
user can just click on
toolbar button and
Rapid-Pi will insert
the correct textual
keyword for the symbol (for example, “.a”
for lower-case alpha,
“.int” for integral).

will find that they
