Inline LaTeX Addition

Currently there is the LaTeX block which occupies a whole 2 or 3 lines of text. What would be cool is to have also an option for inline LaTeX code to integrate along with regular written text. Here is a simple example:

Yes, I’d also love to see this.

Having some sort of LaTex implementation would be fantastic!

@biome LaTeX block is already available, this request is for the inline display of such block

As a student in computer science and mathematics this would be fantastic !

Yes! I’d like to see this happen too, along with a keyboard shortcut that toggles between LaTeX and normal text, like Notion’s Ctrl + Shift + E or Obsidian’s $ $.

This! Perhaps the inline latex block could be more of a way of formatting text than a ‘block’ (similar to what inline codeblocks are like today), if you type ‘$’ around some text it could turn into a LaTeX block, render out its content & let you edit it if your cursor moved back into it (either by turning back into its formula text when your cursor was on it (I don’t have a good example of an editor that I’ve used that does this out of the box, but from experience with a custom EMACS config it works pretty well) or opening a box similar to notion’s formula box).

+1 for this feature! It would be really good for typesetting academic contents

I’m onboard with this idea! As someone who has a lot of math classes, I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to have an inline equation.

+1 I would really need that too!

This would be awesome, will this get implemented in the near future?

Yes, please! This would be one of the last few things I need to switch over to anytype.

+1. I think it would be nice if $ would generate inline equations and $$ would generate block equations. This syntax should also be used when exporting to Markdown because Markdown converters such as Pandoc can translate these to LaTeX equations again.

+1. I think the inline latex is a basic function that a note-taking app should have. It is difficult to take scientific notes without such a function. It is the most important function I am waiting for before I move to Anytype. Really hope it could come soon. :smiley:
