Questionmark Live’s LaTeX Editor
Posted By Doug Peterson
LaTeX (yes, it is properly spelled with a mixture of upper and lower-case letters, and is pronounced lay-tek) is a “document preparation system for high-quality typesetting. It is most often used for medium-to-large technical or scientific documents…” (retrieved 29 January 2013). You can think of it as kind of a markup language, like HTML on steroids. As it is used mainly for technical or scientific documents, it is very powerful when it comes to math and science formulas.
LaTeX is especially popular in the world of higher education, which includes a number of Questionmark customers. To meet the needs of those who prefer to create their math formulas in LaTeX, Questionmark Live offers a LaTeX editor. In any text area such as the question stimulus or a choice, simply place your cursor where you want the formula to appear and click the LaTeX Editor button in the text editing toolbar.
Your LaTeX formula is converted into a graphic and inserted in the text area!
