fxRender v3 beta
Designed for Microsoft Excel®
Formula Render (fxRender™) is a new way to visualise Microsoft Excel® formulas.
- Document and Audit calculations with beautiful coloured equations that present your calculations in a clear and concise format.
- Find Errors with a structured view of the variables and values used in formulae.
- Publish equations to other applications and websites.
Version 3 (2013)
The first version that can operate entirely offline using our new equation rendering system developed specifically for Windows. This makes fxRender substantially faster and opens up a range of new possibilities. Most other features of the add-in have been enhanced, with a great deal of attention attributed to improving usability. Furthermore Number Find and Text Find capabilities have been added to help find hidden constants within formulas.

The following developments are planned:

- Improved online equation rendering, particularly for EMF format. And better support for international characters.
- VBA solution that can be used in Office 2011 for the Apple Mac. Though we are waiting to see how Office 2013 operates on the Mac.
