equation support

Rick Salay May 03, 2013 09:47AM PDT

I have an ipad and bought your product but when I tried to sync from OneNote (via Dropbox), all occurrences of math (via the equation editor) in the text gets replaced by "[math not supported]". Since I use a lot of math, this makes the Outline version of my notes virtually useless and unreadable. Two possible solutions that would make it useful:
1) Replace equations by inline images
2) Replace equations by the TEX textual representations - e.g. "M_{hello} \cup N" is "M" with subscript "hello" union "N"

Of course, the best solution is to have an equation editor in Outline, but either (1) or two (2) would make Outline usable (to me and probably to others) and make it worth the $15 I just spent.

Please let me know when you will have a solution to this problem.

Hi Rick,
indeed, math equations are not supported yet. Thanks for your ideas! I've notes them to our wish list.
We will consider these possibilities for our future updates.

I would like to support the request for math / LaTex support. In my opinion, that's one of the key feature of OneNote itself. Thanks!

As an Scientific student I'm write a lot of mathematical notes included in my manuscripts. I'm very happy if you can add the feature to insert such latex expressions in outline.

this is one point that me prevents me to buy outline.
