Hello,

I am attempting to use mathjax to render latex on anki mobile. I am creating basic cards with the exact cards shown in the guide (https://apps.ankiweb.net/docs/manual.html#mathjax-support), but anki mobile is not rendering, instead showing the \( \) and raw latex. Any tips for debugging the possible cause?

I am using the latest Anki mobile on iOS.

    Hi David,

    Two things may be tripping you up:

    • there is no shortcut to wrap the text, so you'll need the text in step 3 rather than step 1
    • copying & pasting it will paste the text formatting, which will prevent the text from being rendered - typing it manually should work
