# Support for LaTeX for mathematical equations

#### Michael Diolosa

I've been migrating my notes from Ulysses over to Bear and have noticed there is no support (that I could find) for displaying mathematical equations using LaTeX. This is a feature supported by Ulysses, and as a software engineer that works with AI and machine learning, it would be great to be able to see some of my algorithms' equations within my notes in the way I can in Ulysses:

Hi, are you still working on the latex feature? Latex feature could be a huge help for academic users.

Please add LaTex. It is a great feature. LaTex is usel by many scientists to produce papers - LaTeX/TeX is the only way to make correctly typeset equations suitable for publication. In Apple's Pages you can 'Insert Equation', where you edit LaTex code (e.g. \theta_{1} ) in a dialog box, the code is rendered as typeset text in the document when you close the dialog box. Word has an equation editor, FrameMaker likewise - but LaTeX is superior.

To compete with Pages (and stand-alone LaTex) for scientists, LaTeX is a crucial feature. LaTex is open source covered by LPPL license (https://www.latex-project.org). Since Apple ships it with Pages, it should be possible for Bear to ship it similarly as well.

This is so much-needed feature.

I'm an engineering student and evaluating my options for a note-taking app for school. I got here when searching to see if Bear supported LaTeX. Please consider adding it. Thanks.

With math support I could finally end my life-long quest, and get rid of ulysses and Typora and all other apps that do N-1 things perfectly.

Please add support for LaTeX for mathematical equations, it would make bear much better!

+1000 I'm waiting only that to move from Typora to Bear

+1 for LaTeX, equation support!

Any news? Since I’ve started reader how around deep learning I urgently need that feature. Without it i would ultimately have to move to some other tool.

+1 — this is the only think keeping me from cutting everything over from Quiver. Sad to hear that it was #3 on other users' priority list, but I'll keep my fingers crossed that tables and encryption are quick. :)
