Shouldn't be terribly hard either, if developers were to use something like MathJax.

• Jonathan Campbell

I would also really like to see this. It would be great for note-taking.

• Elizabeth Henning

There used to be a terrific Chrome extension called MathFlowy that used MathJax to render inline mathematics. I especially liked the fact that it allowed you to choose the delimiters because I much prefer /(../) to $..$. Unfortunately, the last WorkFlowy UI update broke it and it hasn't been updated since. But this should really be a built-in feature.

+1 Like Typora, using Mathjax to render inline formula can be a good idea

This could be helpful, I really liked the flow of writing equations with it: https://www.npmjs.com/package/react-mathquill

• Johann Kenny

This would be a game-changer for those in the academic community.

How do we find out the developers opinion on this?

Will it be put on to the roadmap?

• Frank (Workflowy Support)

Hi Steven!

We don't specifically have this on the roadmap... but I think you could more effectively campaign for this via the WorkFlowy Users Group on Slack :-). Just shoot me an email at help@workflowy.com for an invite.

+ 1 for this, would help me a lot

It would be a great addition to Workflowy

• Kartik Vempala

This is how Dynalist pulled it off. https://blog.dynalist.io/latex/

They used https://katex.org/ by Khan Academy

• Andrew J Peters

Another vote for this! Not being able to format math is a major frustration of mine when taking notes in Workflowy.

• Martin

Hi all, I actually just wrote a Chrome Extension for this precisely using Khan Academy's KaTeX as Kartik mentioned above, please check it out: It's rudimentary, but works:

[PS Feb 7 2022: Please check out this Tampermonkey script instead, it works without the bugs of the initial chrome extension. I'll update the Chrome extension after a bit more testing.]

• Kartik Vempala

Awesome! Thanks for making the extension, Martin! :)

@Frank - I think the proof-of-concept by Martin shows easy it would be for Workflowy to add support for Latex. Would it be possible to have the dev team to have a quick glance at this to assess feasibility? I imagine they would be able to implement it within a week ;)

Also, could you please send me an invite for the "WorkFlowy Users Group" on Slack? Thanks! :) Also, I don't have a work email (just gmail). Would I still be able to join the group? Thanks again!

Hi Kartik!

> Would it be possible to have the dev team to have a quick glance at this to assess feasibility? I imagine they would be able to implement it within a week ;)

Sure... I'll create an internal ticket with the details from this thread and see if we can get some interest from the developers.

Guys, I wrote a script that supports LaTeX in WorkFlowy. Try it here: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/439947-katexflowy

• Denan Kurejsepi

I would love Latex support here, so plus one from me

• yahui

latex math support is imprtant for us

• HH

Anyone else using TexFlowy by Martin and know how to fix this alignment bug?

• Martin

Hi HH, I actually fixed it (WF had changed something about how things are displayed). https://github.com/marzwipan/TexFlowyTM

• HH

Woohoo! Thanks!
