Change the Math Script Command!

  1. Jul 26, 2013 #1
    I know that you can use two ## to use inline text, but I'm not sure how to use the display mode, instead of having to write "[tex][/itex]" every time, which drives me insane.

    Is there some other command that I'm inaware of? Or is there simply no script to use display without writing out the big clunk "[tex]"?

    If there isn't currently a command, it should be implemented.

    For display mode, use

    Code (Text):
    [tex]code[/tex] or $$code$$

    For inline mode, use

    Code (Text):
    [itex]code[/itex] or ##code##

    Code (Text):
    ##\displaystyle ...##
    gives "large" formulas without line breaks.

    This is a double fraction: ##\displaystyle \frac{\frac{a}{b}}{\frac{c}{d}}##. And this is text after the formula.

    Thanks, I only tried the single $ command XD , should've tried the $$
