Posted this by accident. 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.

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.

If you are going to use $\LaTeX$ to post mathematics (and you should), you should use it properly, not just for occasional symbols.

Unfortunately, there may be some symbols that, if entered in the way zylo suggests, aren't visible correctly by default by users of certain operating systems.

Learning LaTex is not on my agenda. 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.

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...
