Writing math symbols and equations

I have made a website that can help with this problem, to the left there is an equation editor, and the website will automatically generate images that can be dragged into Evernote.

I totally agree with the request. I work as an electrical engineer and I use OneNote so far which has formula editor integrated. Having discovered many nice features of Evernote, the lack of this feature is actually the only reason why I haven't already switched to Evernote. I definitely need this for my daily work.

My preferred solution would be to enter formulas with a latex syntax.

All workarounds with entering the formula somewhere else and posting an image in Evernote or handwriting the formula are really too cumbersome and cannot convince me to finally switch to Evernote.

As a student of Business Economics, it is necessary many times to write on my notes mathematical symbols and equations; it is not available now, however, wouldn't it be a great feature?

It would be a great feature!

As a mechanical engineer student and Evernote lover, it is currently the main topic I miss on Evernote! I really like the Evernote for Windows version, but I really miss the possibility to  add math symbols and equations... I hope we can see this feature in a near future on Evernote..

*ps: I'm from Brazil and my English is a working in progress... jajaja

Another +1 for this. 

I use Evernote for both my MBA and data science in my day job. It would be very helpful to have an insert math equation option perhaps a window or inline editing.

You're welcome to indicate your support using the vote button at the too left corner of the discussion

In the meantime, use an editor that supports equations

I want to support the request. It is strongly needed Evernote to support the math visualization. For instance, I need to store web pages (wiki is an example) with math. Now I have to convert them into pdf. It is very unpleasant, annoying and awkward. I have not found any external add-ins to work with math in Evernote.

I am in full support of being able to write equations in Evernote. As an MBA student who needs functionality like this, unfortunately it just doesn't make sense for me to continue with Evernote absent of the feature.

Hi,

I would really like to see this feature added to Evernote! For now, I use Microsoft Word to type all my mathmatical equations (insert -> Equation) and simply copy them to Evernote. It's time consuming, but it works.

Used OneNote so far for my scientific notes (I am biologist) - the missing formulas is a huge disadvantage. Would love to see this too! As well as superscripted and subscripted text. Thats even possible in this forum - why isn't it implemented in Evernote?!

It doesn't seem to be an important feature for the Evernote team though, which is just sad.

One factor in priority is user interest.  To indicate your support for this request, use the vote button in the top left corner of the discussion.  There are currently 2055769845_ScreenShot2019-07-18at07_58_27.png.d5c95107f9c50b0276197b2cf0ba30a7.png votes

Yes to using a LaTex supported document.
Add it to a note as a file attachment

Please make this a thing. Latex support is not that hard to implement

While I 100% agree that LaTeX would be a great feature, as a developer (not for evernote) I cringe every time I see "not that hard to implement". People seem to have the false impression that software engineers can just wave a magic wand and "make it happen".

For now there are many services, both online and offline, that will convert formulas to images, which you can insert into your document.

I am also supporting the demand of adding this feature.

It's very important, i thought it did not mater to me, but it does.

Please evernote, don't let competitors get ahead for silly reasons, note taking business is already tough.

I have stuck around waiting for this to happen for as long if not longer than this request for Evernote to provide markdown/latex support.

Having support for formulae is not a nice-to-have for me, but a necessity. 

Sadly it seems that my only course of action is to migrate my work to OneNote.

Evernote has a sketch feature which allows for handwriting and drawing symbols

You could also look at using an external editor that supports the LaTeX or MathML.

Copying equations across from utilities like laTexit is a pain as it gives not ability to edit the source markdown later on.  Have embedded support of equations using LaTex would very useful for making lab notes. Lots of people need to make equations in their notes, seems like it would be an awesome feature.

I'd really like latex support for Evernote, since apart from that I enjoy using it. Currently, I use it for organizing my notes at work and I use a lot of math, so this would greatly help me. It doesn't seem to be an important feature for the Evernote team though, which is just sad. My current workaround is LaTeXIt, which has - as already mentioned above - several drawbacks.

My best solution for mathy content is to use a LaTeX document and sync it via cloud, which is certainly not a perfect solution. But better than Evernote for my purposes.

I agree with using a document editor that supports LaTeX.  I use Apple Pages, and store the documents as note attachments

If Evernote had a $ for every post that said "not that hard to implement", ...

This is a must. Otherwise it just leaves Google Drive as the preferred platform -- Google Docs has a minimal built-in equation editor and there is also a latex plug-in.

I think this very important and would love to see it too but no latex equations Microsoft's implementation on Word is great. Its more intuitive and faster to use in its Unicode form than in its latex form. We need this
