This add-on lets you instantly convert every math equation in your document into beautiful latex images!

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.

This tool lets me, a non-LaTex user, make nice equations in a google doc in chrome, so I'm pretty happy. That said, it's a bit klugey. It's not supported in other browsers, the render/derender buttons are a giant sidebar that takes up way too much screen real-estate, and the de-rendering is annoying... you have to have the cursor sitting directly before a rendered equation, then click the sidebar button. I'd recommend it as a crutch for people like me who are using word or google docs, and are intimidated by LaTeX but nevertheless need to include equations. I think as I become more comfortable with LaTeX through this tool, I will get more annoyed with all the mouse clicking and window toggling this entails and possibly move to a full LaTeX editor.

This IS the math addon that Google Docs needs. It also happens to be the math add-on that Google Docs users deserve. I use it all the time teaching high school calculus, and it is an essential tool for my students, who render beautifully legible assignments and reports, and if pursuing higher education in sciences or math,have one less thing to worry about: if they didn't learn calculus, at leas they can typeset math. Thanks to the devs for this wondeful add-on! keep it up!.... (on a side note, I don't understand why software authors insist in avoiding LaTeX in word processing, making horrible, supposedly "easy" equation editors. If someone needs to write something more complex than (a +b) - c = x, surely figuring out LaTeX is not beyond them.)

I love this add-on! It combines the best of both worlds- the flow and ease of writing equations in latex and the convenience of google docs and a traditional text editor. Like some other people have said, I wouldn't use it for a thesis or anything super important, but for lab reports and other classwork, this is perfect!

This renderer is amazing. If I was to use the built-in equation editor in Docs, it's really a torture. It didn't support all the functions, and some of the words in a fraction was small af. This renderer solves all my problems, but I think a live-editor can be implemented into this add-on. That will help a lot while editing some complex stuff. Currently I'm using the integrated editor on another tab and copying it to my doc.

A TA introduced me to this. Very good use of adding latex equations to Google Docs. It's also free.
