Steps to reproduce
Open a new file and type some latex math within $$ $$

Expected result
The text within the dollar signs should show up red

Actual result
The latex mode will not be recognized and the default markdown syntax highlighting is active

Environment
Operating system:
MacOS (English)
Windows (German)
(However both with german keyboard layout)
Additional information
Tried it on three different machines, even one with freshly installed obsidian and new, empty vault.

Same problems here, inline LaTeX works now, display mode no longer highlights syntax in edit mode.

Operating System: Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS
Obsidian Version: 0.6.5
German Keyboard as well but English operating system

currently, the syntax for block latex in edit mode is $$math$$

we will fix that in a future release.

Steps to reproduce
```
Suppose $f$ is convex.
$$
f(y) \leq f(x) + \nabla f(x)^T (y - x) + \frac{\beta}{2} \| y - x \|^2 \Longleftrightarrow \|\nabla f(y) - \nabla f(x)\| \leq \beta \|y - x\|
$$
```

The above code does not show correctly.

Environment
Operating system: Mac OSX 10.15.5
Obsidian version: v0.6.5
Using custom CSS: No

See āFormat your notesā in help.

Question on that note then. Will the current block method (i.e $$math$$) be preserved or will it be fully changed to:

$$
math
$$

It would be helpful to know the āproperā way to format my block math environments moving forward.

Thanks!

Hi, sorry if Iām not understanding correctly. Iām currently getting an issue where inline math is working as expected, but display math is showing up as if it were inline, so when I put

$$\mathbb{C}^*=\mathbb{C} \setminus {0} = {z \in \mathbb{C} | z \neq 0 }$$

it actually shows up in preview mode as

$\mathbb{C}^*=\mathbb{C} \setminus {0} = {z \in \mathbb{C} | z \neq 0 }$

with the latex rendered correctly, but inline, and with the two dollar signs, so it clearly thinks what I wrote was some inline math that started and ended in dollar signs, instead of some display math.

Any help would be appreciated and thanks for making Obsidian so awesome!

Add an empty line before the block formula.

@WhiteNoise This issue is still persistant in 0.7.3. Withouting adding an additional black line before the formula, the rendering doesnāt work.

The blank line before block math is a different bug than the one in this thread.
