Setting options for KaTeX rendering

What I’m trying to do

I believe that Obsidian uses KaTeX for its LaTeX support. I love it, but I’d like to change some of the KaTeX settings to make it a bit more convenient.

In particular, I’d really like to enable newlines (\\) in display math, so that I don’t have to use an aligned environment if I just want to type a couple of lines of maths. KaTeX supports this via the newLineInDisplayMode option, described in the KaTeX documentation.

However, I can’t find a way within Obsidian to change the KaTeX settings, and I would like to know if this is possible.

Things I have tried

I’ve tried various google searches, but they have failed me, so I’m asking here. If there’s no off-the-shelf way I’ll submit it as a feature request.

They’re using MathJax, see Credits - Obsidian Help

But in general it’s hard (or impossible) to change the settings of the underlying module in Obsidian.
