 LaTex Help Help with LaTex and writing math equations

Copied greek symbols from google math paper to word pad and from there to here. Lo and behold, it entered them as is. Now I'm thinking of copying a bunch of commonly used symbols and putting them on top of a blank document. Perhaps a LaTex expert would care to comment. $\displaystyle \rightarrow$ → So what I did this time is got LaTex from https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php Then copied it and added and posted it, copied posted symbol into word pad and copied that back into MMF and posted it. Worked. Last edited by zylo; March 12th, 2018 at 06:25 AM.

My method has been to write my equations using https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php and copying them to WordPad, then enclosing them in "math" symbols in MMF which works fine except sometimes I can hardly follow what I write.

I wouldn't recommend copying from some random paper that Google happened to find.

It only takes a few extra minutes of googling each time you make a post.. you don’t need to sit down and study it from a textbook or something...
