Re: equation editor


Thanks, I had been looking in equationeditor.py file, but wasn't sure how to add the -D option.

The reason I want to be able to change the resolution is to make the image suitable to be used in printed documents, which normally requires a dpi of 300. But that would result in a very large image in the notebook. A solution for me (but perhaps not so much for you) would be an option to resize the image display in the notebook (like you can do with a normal image). The option to use svg instead of png would be even better, perhaps also for your user case?

I have been thinking about the same thing since I got a HiDPI screen. Currently, I have only managed to make the images bigger, by passing the option "-D 192" to the "dvipng" command. The modified version is here: https://github.com/wzhd/zim-plugin-equation-editor/commit/c3c42d0668ca8dcf69dc1d25d9450d81514d5524

However this is not perfect, when I open the notebook on other computers, the equations are too big.

    Hi Jaap and other Zim devs,

    The 'insert equation' function is a great function, producing nice
    looking equations in Zim. However, the resolution of the image
    (png file) that is generated by the addon is fairly low. Is there
    a way to change the resolution of the image? Or even better, would
    it be possible to add the option to store the on-the-fly generaged
    image as svg instead of png? This would provide in perfectly
    scalable solution for any document.

    Best regards
