Re: Text formatting in zim


Ah, yes I should have known - but my classes material science were 10 years
ago or so ...

How about using the equation editor in this case? I'm assuming latex can
render these things correctly.

Although I can see that entering would be slower with the editor. Could
think of some kind of shortcut for entering them inline.
