Using Snip with Typora

Equations can be inserted into Typora by either pasting or a PNG image into your Typora document. You can get both of these compatible formats when using Snip. We recommend using the LaTeX formats for adding math to a Typora document, but PNG images for tables.
To ensure that Snip is configured to work seamlessly with Typora, go to Settings (Preferences on Mac) > Formatting and select:
  • $...$ delimiters for inline math
  • $$...$$ delimiters for block mode math
Select the correct delimiters for compatibility with Typora
Then go to Settings (Preferences on Mac) > Image Export and choose the Typora preset.

Make sure Typora is configured to work with LaTeX by going to Preferences > Markdown and enable inline math:

Images in Typora

For non-math STEM content like tables, we recommend using the PNG output format instead of LaTeX (since Typora does not support any text-mode LaTeX features like the tabular environment).
Snip has an image export setting optimized for Typora that will copy a high resolution (600 DPI) PNG to your clipboard which can then be resized once it’s been pasted into your Typora document.
Here are the steps for using PNGs from Snip in Typora with a table example:
  1. Display the image of the table you want to to insert into your document on your screen.
  2. Click the screenshot button on the Snip app or enter the keyboard shortcut ctrl+alt+m/ctrl+command+m.
  3. Click and drag the crop box around your desired equation, release to Snip.
  4. Check your Snip result, then click the Copy PNG button to copy the image to your clipboard.
    1. Now click into your Typora document where you would like to insert your equation and enter the shortcut ctrl+v/command+v to paste.
  5. You will see a small menu with an option to Zoom or Zoom to 12%. Use this option to change the size of the image in your document.
