Overview
This add-on lets you automatically convert every LaTeX equation in your document into beautiful images! Simply enclose your math equations within $$ ... $$ and click the button in the sidebar, and all of your equations will be rendered in LaTeX!

This add-on has many advantages when compared to other formula editors or the default Google Docs equation editors.

★ Convert multiple equations at the same time, using any function supported by LaTeX!
★ Always render in the highest quality!
★ By using automatic sizing, the rendered image will exactly match the font size of the equation! To change size, simply drag the box or change the original font size.
★ By using inline sizing, fractions and other tall expressions will be shortened to match the rest of the expression!
★ If you want to change the equation after it has been rendered, just click the 'De-render Equation' button!
★ Type equations directly into your document instead of clicking to an external sidebar!
★ Change colors and font settings in your equations using CodeCogs LaTeX commands!
★ Only converts equations within $$ or \[ symbols, meaning you render only the equations you want to have rendered!
★ NEW! Option to de-render all equations!
★ Actively updated, meaning YOUR feedback can help improve future versions of the add-on! For more info, check our website at autolatex.com.

Permissions Explained:

Permissions always look scary. Here is a clear list of the permissions needed, and the reasons why.

★ View and manage your documents in Google Drive - The application needs to be able to search the documents for equations, then edit the documents by inserting the LaTeX.

★ View and manage data associated with the application - Each user has preferences (for instance, the size setting that you selected), and these need to stay between closing/opening the sidebar. Note that this data is strictly local and never transmitted or uploaded.

★ Allow this application to run when you are not present - Once the "Render Equations" button is clicked, the application needs time to retrieve equations, render them, download them, then place them in the document. This permission only says that when you switch to another tab, the processes can still run in the background.

★ Connect to an external service - The application needs to fetch images from CodeCogs/TeXRendr/Roger's renderer.

If you have any problems or want more features to be added, please send an email to the developer at autolatex@gmail.com. We will consider every request, and try to get back to you as soon as possible. Access more information at autolatex.com, our official website.

I don't like how the sidebar disappears whenever you try to render or derender an equation. The equations also look very grainy when on firefox.

Great job. But I find multiple line equation should using shift+enter instead of enter only in comment in this page. It should be also noted in sidebar. It would be more cool that we can also use intuitive enter in addition to subtle shift+enter.

Takes quite a while to render, but is very convenient since I don't have word!

Easy to use, and the equations can look good at any size.

Quick and easy, wouldn't use it to write a thesis but it's perfect for any other text-writing that includes some formulae. I had some browser-related trouble initially, but the author responded promptly to my inquiry and suggested I try chrome. Which works perfectly. So far no real drawbacks for me here; it works, and author responds to technical questions should it not.

Grad Student taking ridiculous higher math classes, and this extension has been deeply useful to me in taking notes for class; I prefer LaTeX for homework, but keeping my notes in Google Docs means I can easily share with my classmates. Thank you!
