Hello!

I just received an invite to use Dropbox Paper and I almost fell out of my chair when I saw that you guys have inserted the LaTeX support on it! By simply typing I can write Math equations. As a Math teacher, I am very pleased right now! I do have one question though: Since most of the exercises I elaborate have multiple lines on their solution (in which I use align or equation), I cannot type for example \begin{align*} \lim_{x \to 0} \frac{x^2}{1-cos(x)} &= \lim_{x \to 0} \cancelto{0/0}{\frac{x^2}{1-cos(x)}} \\ &= \stackrel{L'H}{=} \lim_{x \to 0} \frac{[x^2]'}{[1-cos(x)]'}\\ &= \lim_{x \to 0} \cancelto{0/0}{\frac{2x}{sin(x)}} \\ &\stackrel{L'H}{=} \lim_{x \to 0} \frac{[2x]'}{[sin(x)]'} \\ &= \lim_{x \to 0} \frac{2}{cos(x)} \\ &= 2 \end{align*} Is there a way to do that? Or was that feature not built inside Dropbox Paper? Thank you. 5 Replies Dropboxer ## Re: Dropbox Paper + LaTeX equations (math environment) Hi there, Thanks for posting on Dropbox Forum! We're so happy that you're excited for the new LaTeX feature. Please have a look at this link https://khan.github.io/KaTeX/. It may help address your question. Thank you, Vivian Did you find my post helpful? If it answers your question, please mark 'Accept as Solution" below so other users can find it quickly! Level 2 ## Re: Dropbox Paper + LaTeX equations (math environment) Hi Vivian, how are you? I am not ure how this link would be helpful. I understand that KaTeX is a solution for browsers but, what I am asking is about the possibility of typing multiline, robust LaTeX equations on Dropbox Paper. Best Regards. Level 4 ## Re: Dropbox Paper + LaTeX equations (math environment) Using the aligned (\begin{aligned}) environment would render the equation itself multiline with proper aligning around the &= but I'm not sure if it's possible to enter line breaks in the code for the equation (which means it would quickly become very unreadable). There's also this not-terribly-up-to-date list of functions that KaTeX supports. Level 2 ## Re: Dropbox Paper + LaTeX equations (math environment) Thank you Nielz, I believe that the bottom line, as you said, is that there is no way to break a line. Best Regards! Level 2 ## Re: Dropbox Paper + LaTeX equations (math environment) I found your post looking for something similar and, after reading the KaTeX doc, was able to write aligned multi-line equations with the aligned function. Thanks! For instance, try \begin{aligned} x &= 8 \\ &= 5\end{aligned}
