Use LaTeX formatting on your Confluence pages with the LaTeX Math Lite application. The LaTeX will render as PNG images.
Confluence pages can now include equations, units, and more. Add LaTeX representations of complex formulas that will be rendered on the fly.
To make editing pages easier, inline equations will be rendered in the placeholder in the Confluence editor.
This article provides you with the following information:
Inline Block Equations
Inline equations are displayed in the surrounding text. Block equations will display prominently with optional (automatically incrementing) numbering.
References to numbered equations with links
You can easily refer to numbered equations on the same page or other pages with a link displaying the corresponding equation number.
Editing equations is easy
Equations are rendered client-side using MathJax.
The following are the available LaTeX Math Marcos. You can access all the macros by installing the LaTeX Math Lite application.
This macro implements the LaTeX inline math mode. You can use this macro to display formulas or symbols in line with the surrounding text.
This macro implements the LaTeX equation math mode. The output is displayed on a separate line with the left horizontal alignment.
The Math Block macro supports numbering. Numbering is enabled by when a non-empty "anchor" is given.
Math Block Reference
This macro displays a link to the Math Block macro, which has the same anchor. Note: Once we the Anchor name give click out side of the text field to take the input value into effect.
The following tables list the difference between the LaTeX Math and LaTeX Math Lite application:
LaTeX Math Lite
Supports five macros
(Math Block, Math Block Reference, Math Inline, List of Equations & Unit)
Supports only three macros
(Math Block, Math Block Reference & Math Inline)
LaTeX syntax support
Limited syntax support
Vertical alignment of Inline equation
Aligned with the surrounding text.
Not always aligned with surrounding text.
Server-side (renders instantly)
Client-side (can be slow with many equations on one page)
Math Block Reference macro - Page selection
A page selection can be made across spaces.
Page selection is limited to the same page.
