I was talking about this about 5 years ago and it's very disappointing that Latex or Math ML still aren't supported yet. Even Blackboard LMS supports these basic maths equation languages.

I totally get that it can be frustrating to wait for a feature to come out, but please know that we're doing our very best to bring our users the features they want and need as quickly as possible.

I'm sorry, I don't have any updates on this that I can share right now. However, you're now subscribed to this conversation which means as we share updates here, you’ll automatically be notified.

In the meantime, if there's anything else I can do to help, please let me know!

Just wondering. Maybe we tackling this problem from the wrong end. We expecting the team members (staff) of Articulate to prioritize Maths and Science requests. But if the bulk (or all of them) fall into the category: "Math is not my forte", then who is actually representing our case in the meetings where feature categories are being discussed and decided upon? I realize this is a huge assumption on my part but then again, if my assumption is wrong - why do we have to wait five years, or more, before we can type a half decent Maths and Science equation into our RISE and Articulate work?

I'm changing my original feature request of two years ago as follows:

"Articulate, please consider appointing a Maths and Science specialist onto your development team."

Thanks for your feedback. I sense that you're frustrated that this feature hasn't been implemented and I totally get it. The waiting game is never easy!

However, I want you to know that we're doing our very best to bring our users the features they want and need as quickly as possible.

I was also facing the same problem, but i found the solution. Don't copy paste , you can edit the choice from slide view also. For ex. if you want to write 10−⁶ write 10 in the form view question choice, then open the slide view and edit the option , it works.

While it's not ideal this is what we do for a work around. There is a software program called EquatIO that has a feature called "screenshot reader". If faculty provides us with equations we can use EquatIO to take a screenshot of the equation and download as a png or svg file. EquatIO also provides spoken text. So, the image is added to Rise and the spoken text is put in as Alt Tag to make it accessible.

Again, not ideal but it's what we are using for now to make sure complex equations can be added to Rise and are accessible. It would make more sense to have a text editor that can also do math. HOWEVER, I have had to create lessons as a PDF instead of using Rise because it would take to long to create some Physics lessons in Rise (and Word already has an equation editor available).

Hi there! Thanks for letting us know you need a mathematical equation editor in Rise 360. It's not on our roadmap right now, but we'll let you know if that changes!

Is there any update on this functionality. It is a major problem for us. We have created some courses on Rise and had intended to scale up but without some commitment that Rise can support Mathematical equations, we will have to cancel our licenses and look for an alternative product.

Hi Christian,

We receive hundreds of feature requests every week, so prioritizing them is no small task and we take it very seriously. Here's an inside look at how that process works.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi Allison - Can you share with us whether math support is even on the roadmap yet?

That’s a form-letter response...

We need more than superscript and subscript, how do we add this?

Hi guys, any update on the math issue? Our team needs to create a Statistics course to support our online students during this pandemic.
