is it possible now to use mathjax that is installed locally on the machine so you don't need net access? Or can that be considered for a future release?

    Not currently, but in the next update you should be able to work around it.

    In 1.3.1 (currently in review), if you disable the internal MathJax CDN load in preferences, and then use an HTML Header: line or add a script inline in the document, you should be able to load MathJax from wherever you like. All scripts are stripped from the document when it renders, but appended back to the preview when it loads, so any MathJax local reference should be re-included no matter where you place it in your document.

    When the update comes out, please let me know how that works for you.

    external monitor I would be laughing. That problem seems much harder to
    solve! Thanks and I’ll let you know on the next version.

    Well just to close this off I just found out/tested that any file you can open in GoodReader (which includes web pages in the built in browser) you can project to an external. So that is good news if you want to present a web page using an ipad.
