You can use Tex or MathML languages for describing mathematical formulas in AsciidocFX. AsciidocFX converts this textual formulas as png or svg image.

.For Example (Tex) [source,tex]


\begin{align} \dot{x} & = \sigma(y-x) \ \dot{y} & = \rho x - y - xz \ \dot{z} & = -\beta z + xyp \end{align}

//// .Tex output [math,file="tex-formula.png"]

\begin{align} \dot{x} & = \sigma(y-x) \ \dot{y} & = \rho x - y - xz \ \dot{z} & = -\beta z + xyp \end{align}


== Tex output image::images/tex-formula.png[]

.For Example (MathML) [source,xml]


x = − b ± b 2 − 4 a c 2 a . -- ----

== Known Issues

PDF output shows all text as ####:: On Linux platforms you can face with this issue. For the getting around for the issue you need to install Microsoft Core Fonts to your platform. How to install <> Mac QWERTY Keyboard Bug:: There is a bug in JavaFX which makes all keyboards on a Mac behave as "QWERTY". This means, that on a German "QWERTZ" layout the shortcuts for undo and redo are swapped. Text Artifacts (Rainbowing) on Text:: If you are being distracted by rainbow text artifacts on text, you can work around the issue by passing some VM options in [Install_Dir]/AsciidocFX.vmoptions, as shared in[this RichTextFX bug].

. Open AsciidocFX.vmoptions. . Add -Dprism.text=t2k and -Dprism.lcdtext=false to the file. . Save and close. . Launch AsciidocFX
