I use Mathtypeto insert mathematical equations in MS world.
Today I understood that there's no built-in symbol for $\mathscr(F)$ in MathType so I searched for a way of using LaTex codes in MathType. here and here and on this page, it says that it's possible for MathType 6 users and later to use $TEX$ in MathType editor.
But whenever I try, I see that TEX codes won't be translated and nothing happens. The version of MathType installed on my windows 7x64 is 6.9a. Is there anything that I should do?

I have MiKTeX 2.9, Texmaker and Word-to-LaTeX installed on my computer.

    It means that it is the time to move from MS Word to (La)TeX. You are welcome to TeX society. :-) – Przemysław Scherwentke Aug 5 '15 at 18:37

    @PrzemysławScherwentke I believe the OP is entitle to three "free" curses at MSWord and/or Bill Gates before he is required to contemplate the (La)TeX alternative. – Steven B. Segletes Aug 5 '15 at 18:40
  • I don't have much time to learn Latex right now. because I'm busy with my thesis. I'm a bit familiar with mathematical codes for TEX because of my activity in math.stackexchange.com. Surely there should be a way. Videos by System Design Inc. on Youtube verifies that. But that way just does not work on my laptop. I'm wondering maybe I should have something installed on my system like a compiler or so? – Sepideh Abadpour Aug 5 '15 at 18:51

The solution is to set the preferences correctly.

In MathType go to "Preferences" > "Workspace preferences" and there tick "allow TEX language entry from the keyboard".
