    What method does Asciidoctor use to render the math? If it's done with
    MathJax or similar through an embedded script, then the issue is that
    the content of the display is being replaced but the scripts are not
    being triggered because it's not a full refresh. I can show you how to
    add a JavaScript update hook that can trigger them again, but I don't
    know exactly how the math is being rendered to begin with.

    Thank you for getting back to me. I am not sure how to answer your
    question. This is a bit over my head.

    Perhaps this page may answer your question:

    By the way, hitting CMD-R while in Marked 2 will refresh your screen and my
    equations reappear. I wouldn't bother you except that live preview was the
    reason I bought Marked 2 in the first place (and I love it and use it

    It appears to use MathJax, and is probably loading a separate instance
    of MathJax in the document, which is conflicting with built-in MathJax
    support. Under Preferences->Style, do you have MathJax enabled?

    I turned the MathJax option on and I am not sure that was an improvement.

    I notice, whether the MathJax option is enabled or not, if I change one of
    the Asciimath equations, the CMD-R workaround no longer works. When the
    Mathjax option is enabled, not even killiing Marked 2 and restarting it
    causes my equations to render again.
