Stop using Mimetex and replace it with a more modern Latex solution
#1
Mimetex is really bad at displaying, and displaying Latex through images often encounters the situation that images cannot be loaded, and cannot easily copy other people's Latex formulas. Should switch to mathjax based latex implementation as soon as possible.

Okidoks, you can now also use mathjax with \\( and \\) as inline delimiter and \\[ and \\] or \$\$ as display delimiter.
\[\lim_{\Im(s) \to \infty} F(s) = \infty\]

YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

THANK YOU BO! This will be used excessively by me. Sometimes when I'm writing papers I accidentally write [ tex ]...[ / tex] because my muscle memory loses itself!

THANK YOU!

Hey, Bo

Two errors I've noticed.

First of all. I cannot stack equations:
Code:
$$
some math\\
some math\\
some math\\
$$

Will render as one line rather than stacking like it does with tex. I know mathjax has a way to do this. Am I missing something in how this works?

Second of all, if I do a quick edit of a post (as opposed to a full edit); all the new commands disappear. I imagine this is a dumb script error.

Just pointing it out Big Grin  This is still a great update Tongue

Aren't you supposed to use array or align environment?
$$
\begin{align*}
a &= b\\
ab &= cd\\
abc &= def
\end{align*}
$$
Code:
$$
\begin{align*}
a &= b\\
ab &= cd\\
abc &= def
\end{align*}
$$

The quick edit has no preview, hence you editing the source, or am I missing something?

Oh okay, so it's a much better mathjax than mathoverflow; mathoverflow runs the command:


Code:
$$
a=b\\
c=d\\
$$


as an automatic align. That's fine, I just assumed it'd be the same as math overflow.

As to my second point. If you do a quick edit; and save the edit; all the mathjax commands revert to text when you confirm the edit. For instance, I'll write an equation and then quick edit it and save it:

$$
e^z
$$

EDIT: after the quick edit; you can see all the mathjax code reverts. Not a big deal; just have to use full edit exclusively with these commands.

It seems mathoverflow uses mathjax 2.7.5, while I use mathjax 3.
Dunno really whether there is a configuration possibility to make the \\\\ work.

Yeah, about the quick edit - $$e^x$$ - that's strange. But you can just do a reload after the quick edit, then the formulas expand - and anyone else should never see the text version anyways.

Ya, not a big deal at all!

This is a huge quality of life upgrade as it is!

Thanks a bunch, bo!
