Modern (MultiDocs) Mode Vrs Classic Mode

Top  Previous  Next

When Efofex products were first designed in 1989, they only ran on Windows and used a Windows specific technology (called OLE) to integrate into Word. Thousands of teachers have spent decades using this old system, which we now call Classic Mode, to create millions of graphics and equations.


As teachers expanded their use of other products, like Google Docs and Mac machines, we need to develop a new way of using our products in these contexts. Modern Mode was the result of these changes.


In 2020, we developed a way of fully integrating Modern Mode graphics into Word on both Windows and Mac machines. If you use Word as your word-processing platform, we now recommend that you move all activities over to Modern Mode using the new, MultiDocs integrated system. While we will not remove the old, Classic Mode system we now consider it as obsolete.
