# Change the Mathjax delimiters from "" and " to "$$" and "$$ $$" #### Raphaël Huleux 05 Sep, 2019 11:28 AM Hello, I used Anki for a while on my computer and on iOS to study mathematics and economics. I would like to use the "$$" delimiters instead of  for Mathjax syntax, but can't find a way to do it.

Regards,

Anki requires separate opening and closing delimiters to properly process the cards, so I'm afraid using \$ will cause problems.

This approach works well on my laptop: https://www.reddit.com/r/Anki/comments/abvcnr/change_mathjax_syntax.... However, I don't know if it works on AnkiDroid. Probably it could work if we rebuild/change apk?

(side note: platform-independent approaches like querying mathjax CDN servers using scripts in card templates didn't work for me at all for some reason)

Cloze deletions may not display properly if you change the delimiters, so I do not recommend you change them.
