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 (, 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
