LaTeX Formula differences in inline and block

There seems to be a difference between how fractions are rendered in inline and block versions of LaTeX formulas.

Steps to reproduce

I tested it out with a fraction to compare inline and block versions.

Expected result

I would probably expect the fonts to look the same. I don’t know if this is a feature (or bug?) coming from the LaTeX interpreter.

Actual result

Here is a comparison between edit and preview modes, try typing out a couple of fractions:

Edit mode:

Annotation 2020-06-05 002349-text-edit

Preview mode:

Annotation 2020-06-05 002349-text-preview


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.6.7
  • Using custom CSS: NO

This is not a but. This is how it works.
Inline: formula inline with other text
Block: formula has its own line.
