  • (2020-11-23, v:0.4.3) Nicolas Boumal: Modifying auto-render.js to allow 'single dollar' latex
    Great extension, thanks a lot! I'd like to allow for regular latex syntax ($..$ for non-display, $$...$$ for display). Following instructions here*, I modified auto-render.js to this effect (the part where optionsCopy.delimiters is defined), but it didn't have any effect. Should I make changes in other places? (Alternatively, if you'd be happy to make this an option in your own extension, that'd be fantastic of course.) Thanks! * https://stackoverflow.com/questions/16680682/how-to-modify-an-extension-from-the-chrome-web-store

    Can you please show simple guides to use latex using this extension, I could not figure out how it works.
  • (2020-07-16, v:0.4.3) Elis Roberts: Options for Changing Inline Math Signifier
    Nice extension! Was wondering if you could add options to change the symbols denoting inline math from $$ .. $$ to $ .. $, and similar for display math? Would allow me to be consistent in channels with other users who use different solutions for displaying math in Slack.
