RTL & MathJax Support / Raw HTML with no file includes

's Avatar


29 Oct, 2012 08:17 PM

I can make a document RTL by applying body { direction: rtl; } to a custom CSS I use, and use MathJax syntax just as smoothly.

However, it seems impossible to set a specific part (or paragraph) in the RTL document to be LTR with MathJax syntax in it.

Wrapping the section with

indeed changes the text. However, it also disables MathJax interpretation. This happens mostly, depending on how many lines I have wrapped within this

I'm looking for a way to write raw HTML in the document that shouldn't be processed. I know I can use file include, but this is quite an overkill for such a small addition.

Any way I can make this work? If I'm gonna make this work, it's gonna make my whole uni's proffesors use MarkedApp as well. No more old-style MSWord-ish editing.

    Couple of things to try, though I haven't tested:

    1. Make sure that Process HTML is turned on in the behavior preferences
    2. Try <div markdown="1" dir="ltr">.

    Let me know if either helps.

    Thanks, both ways helps. I prefer option #2 since I don't have to turn on option #1.

    Also, #1 required me to the turn on 'retain line breaks', otherwise I'll have problems with math and numbered bullets (I get '1.' and a following indented '1.' instead of an unindented '2.').

    I suggest you put this in your support manual, I believe others have had this problem but found it hard to overcome. A topic regarding "RTL in MarkedApp" would be really helpful - Just like your competitor did (check the rtl section in http://www.markdownpro.com).

    Anyways - Thanks for the help, this did the trick.

    Thanks, I'll work on adding that for the next release.
