What are the 6.x Math Import/Export Filters?

On 8 Oct 2015 I listed the LO-5.0.0 Math import/export filters. Those filters are made use of every time we import from, or export to, a LO-Math file. So, 5 years later, what are the current Math filters?

LO-5.x Math filters

LO-6.x Base filters
LO-6.x Calc filters
LO-6.x Draw filters
LO-6.x Graphics filters
LO-6.x Impress filters
LO-6.x Writer filters


LO-6.4 file-conversion filters
(many thanks to Mike Kaganski for the last link; he says that the filters began to be documented at v6.3)

~$ lsb_release -a Devuan GNU/Linux 3 (beowulf)
~$ soffice.bin --version LibreOffice 10(Build:2)

Hand-extracted from /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/registry/math.xcd

Almost identical to the 5 x LO-5 Math filters:

  • Filter v6.1.5.2
  • media
  • file extension(s)

☑ == New entry
☒ == Removed

1 MathML XML (Math)
  • application/mathml+xml
  • mml
2 math_MathType_3x
  • -
  • xxx
3 StarOffice XML (Math) (math6)
  • application/vnd.sun.xml.math
  • sxm
4 math_pdf_Export
  • application/pdf
  • pdf
5 math8
  • application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.formula
  • odf

‘MathML XML (Math)’ now has “UI Name == MathML 2.0” + it can now be exported as well as imported. That’s the only difference from LO-5 that I can spot.

If this helps then please tick the answer (:heavy_check_mark:)
