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

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

    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

    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?

    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.

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

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

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

    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:

    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.

    Try this invite link to join the Slack group:
