Support for LaTeX for mathematical equations

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 ( Since Apple ships it with Pages, it should be possible for Bear to ship it similarly as well.

    Yes, engineering student here, would love LaTeX for taking notes on equations

    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.

    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. :)
