    anyone else having trouble with LaTex today?

    code strings that are interpreted just fine over at freemathhelp.com fail to be interpreted here.

    Nothing fancy. Just \frac

    ideas?

    Some commands work . . . others don't.


    \frac{a}{b}

    \sin2\theta

    \cos x

    x^3 = 8

    \sqrt{a^2+b^2}

    Re: anyone else having trouble with LaTex today?

    I thought maybe I had an error in mine but then I thought this used to work maybe:

    (1/2\sqrt{x})dx+(1/2\sqrt{y})dy=0

    (1/2\sqrt{x})dx+(1/2\sqrt{y})dy=0

    The first two seem to be spacing problems:
    (1/2 \sqrt{x} ) dx + (1/2 \sqrt{y} ) dy = 0

    \sin 2 \theta

    This one doesn't work with spacing.
    x^3=8

    It may be that LaTeX is having problems but you may be able to play around with spacings between commands to make it work. Is anyone else seeing this pattern?

    Re: anyone else having trouble with LaTex today?

    I'm having a ton of stupid problems with latex for no apparent reason. I've tried two different browsers, and I've run Firefox in safety mode with every add-on disabled.

    If you look at the first line in both the message field and the preview field you'll notice that it's sometimes accepting input, in that it wont give me an invalid equation tag, but not actually doing anything to the text.

    This time it seems to be totally broken.

    You can use this website to insert LaTeX. Texify - Online LaTeX equation writer, generates math formulas from LaTeX expressions.

    I had been coping and pasting from the website you linked. For some reason this website was stopping me from directly pasting.

    It looks like this will work another way though.



    Anyone know whats up with this? latex was a big advantage that I don't have access too...
