# [iOS] MathJax characters misaligned

At least in iPad OS and presumably in MacOS as well, (some) characters aren‘t aligned with the baseline.

This bug is a known MathJax Issue, however a solution has to be implemented internally to fix the Issue, because settings have to be altered upon loading MathJax. It happens because of RoundOf issues in WebKit.

### Steps to reproduce

1. Write some consequensive letters (best observed in \text{})
2. Observe misaligned characters

### Expected result

All letters should share a baseline

### Actual result

Instead, the letters appear vertically offset:

### Environment

This issue can be observed in iOS and isn‘t bound to Obsidian.
I‘m sadly not able to test this in MacOS, but according to the MathJax Bug-Report it should be present there as well.

The solution is given in above mentioned Issue and here.

MathJax = {
chtml: {
mtextInheritFont: true
}
}


or

MathJax = {
chtml: {
mtextFont: Times
}
}


to inherit the Editor-Font or define a manual font, which doesn‘t have such issues.

Setting this on WebKit systems should resolve the issue!

On mac we use chrome not webkit, so it doesn’t happen.
I think we’ll wait for the upstream fix.
