Folks,

How do I automate inserting the tags $$...$$. At the moment I am manually writing this in for each expression which is laborious.

THanks

Re: Automate inserting [ tex ] [ /tex ]

In the Advanced Editor (accessed via Go Advanced or QUOTE) click the Σ button and click on a symbol you want to insert in the Latex Reference. (The Σ button isn't available in the non-technical discussion forums such as this one.)

Sorry, we don't have a button that does exactly what you want, but what I said before goes part-way to what you want (did you try it?).

By the way, both of your posts in this thread were not fully readable because if you put a tag in your message if will be interpreted as a tag and won't be visible in the message. Note how I've inserted some spaces in the quote above to make it readable; compare with your original message.
