LaTeX Math Block Macro (Server/DC)

This macro is designed to execute the LaTeX equation math mode. The output is displayed on its line with the selected horizontal alignment.

To work with LaTeX Math Block, you must install the LaTeX Math application. For more information, see Installation.

Limitation with draw.io

The draw.io macro does not render mathematical content properly if any of the LaTeX Math app macros are present on the same page. This occurs due to the different versions of the MathJax library used by both the apps.
