MacKichan Scientific Notebook: Forcing Math/Text

  1. Oct 10, 2005 #1
    Hey crew,

    Playing around with the aforementioned software and Im finding myself becoming agitated that Im continually having to switch between Text and Math.

    Hit enter, and its back to Text. What I want to do is make it Math always until I decide to toggle. Not sure if this is possible but on the chance that it is, I would be indebited if someone could enlighten me on the procedure for making it so.

    well, you can use the LaTeX system. then you just type out the markup and you decided when you want to be in a math environment or not by using $math formula$ for inline and $$math formula$$ for display mode.

    Ctrl-M will get you right back into math mode.
