TeX & Math fonts

MicroPress is not just the home of the best TeX system: we are also the home for the best fonts to be used with TeX!

For the last ten years MicroPress stayed at the forefront of TeX technology. We were the first to bring out scalable fonts, font effects, support for all common graphics formats, integrated spell checking, visual tools, synchronization between the editor and the previewer, GeX and GeX plugins, quality Type 1 fonts and much more. Our 4-in-1 TeX remains the market leader today. VTeX, with its intuitive IDE, full online context-sensitive help, and the Visual Tools is the easiest to use TeX system for novices. Quality fonts, choice of three output modes, ability to write user extentions make it the choice for the professionals.

It is no wonder that majority of our users switched to VTeX from competing implementations; whether you are already using another version of TeX or just starting, whether you are looking for the utmost power or the ease-of-use, VTeX is the right choice for you.
