The Exam Mode in Equatio Desktop allows a teacher or admin to turn Equatio toolbar features off for exams.

Exam Mode can be used to turn features off for one student on a particular computer where they will take an exam.

To activate Exam Mode on a student's machine simply download the features.json file and add it to any one of the following locations:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Equatio\features.json

C:\Users\USERNAME\Equatio\features.json


Mac:

Once this file has been added to one of the locations mentioned above and you open Equatio your toolbar should look like this:
