We have provided a simple way to view the Latex code which generates all the wonderful math equations that you see.

If you hover over an equation (place your mouse over it for a second), it appears in a box:

You can test this feature with the following line of LaTeX:

\[ e^{i \pi } + 1 = 0, \quad i \, \heartsuit \text{ Brilliant!} \]

Additionally, if you click on the menu in the top right corner, and select "Toggle LaTeX", we will then display the latex code, instead of the actual equations. Selecting it again would display the equations.

This allows you to easily read see all of the latex on the page. Furthermore, you can select the text, copy, and paste it into your comment (and then edit it). This way, you can easily reference specific equations.

Refer to this video for an example.

Note: This does not apply to images of LaTeX that members uploaded to problems or solutions.

Update: For solvables that appear in modal boxes, you can now select "Toggle LaTeX" from the "dot dot dot" menu.

Note: Currently "Toggle LaTeX" doesn't work on notes in modal boxes. You will need to open it in it's own page.

Very nice. This is a great addition and is one of the many reasons why I love Brilliant. Along with that, it feels good to connect with those who have very similar interests to yours, especially at young ages. – Tytan Le Nguyen · 2 years, 3 months ago

Can you make some keyboard shortcut to toggle latex? – Abhishek Sharma · 1 year, 12 months ago

– Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 12 months ago

Unfortunately no, not at this moment. We will keep that in mind if a lot of people start using "Toggle Latex", and want a shortcut.Log in to reply

Yay, finally a feature like this! This will definitely help a lot of LaTeX newbies out there :D

EDIT: things like these still don't work yet apparently: \[\left\{\begin{array}{l}\text{Equation 1}\\\text{Equation 2}\end{array}\right.\]

EDIT2: Hm, the "toggle latex" option doesn't work. It toggles everything on the main feed, but once you click on a problem, it just shows the regular latex. – Daniel Liu · 2 years, 3 months ago

Currently, you need to open the problem in it's own window for Toggle LaTeX to work (it doesn't work in modals).Log in to reply
