Document conversion

Converting documents between different file types, like PDF, DOCX, LaTeX, HTML, and Markdown.

Equation to LaTeX

Converting printed and handwritten math formula to LaTeX.

Equation to MS Word

Converting printed and handwritten equations to MathML, which can be pasted directly into MS Word document.

Image conversion

Converting images of math, text, tables, and chemical diagrams to formats like LaTeX, MathML, DOCX, Markdown, and SMILES, which can be pasted directly to your favorite document editing tools.

Image to AsciiMath

Converting images of math into AsciiMath format, which can be pasted directly into your workspace.

Image to ChemDraw

Converting images of chemical diagrams into SMILES format, which can be pasted directly into ChemDraw.

Image to Excel

Converting images of tables into TSV format, which can be pasted into any spreadsheet tool like MS Excel.

Image to Google Sheets

Converting images of tables into TSV format, which can be pasted into any spreadsheet tool like MS Excel.

Image to LaTeX

Converting images (of math, text, or tables) into LaTeX code, which can be pasted into any LaTeX editor, like Overleaf.

Image to MathML

Converting images (of math, text, or tables) into MathML. Our tools use computer vision to convert images into MathML code.

Image to SMILES

Converting printed and handwritten chemical diagrams into canonical SMILES code.

Image to TSV

Converting images of tables into TSV format, which can be pasted into any spreadsheet tool.

Image to Word

Converting images to text or math that can be pasted into an MS Word document.

LaTeX

LaTeX is a software system for document preparation and is an alternative to WYSIWYG editors like MS Word. Many editors use "math mode" LaTeX for rendering math in documents. Our tools can convert images and PDFs into LaTeX.

LaTeX Figure Syntax

Using figure environment to create figures, which can be aligned, captioned and labelled.

LaTeX List Syntax

Using itemize LaTeX environment to create ordered, unordered, and nested lists.

LaTeX Table Syntax

Using tabular environment to typeset tables with optional horizontal and vertical lines. Tables can be captioned, labelled and referenced.

Mathpix Markdown

Markdown is a lightweight markup language for creating formatted text using a plain-text editor, created by John Gruber and Aaron Swartz. Mathpix provides its own superset of Markdown that has extended support for STEM features, called Mathpix Markdown, or MMD for short.

Mathpix Markdown is a superset of Markdown with extended support for LaTeX and other STEM-specific syntax like SMILES for chemical diagram rendering. An open source implementation called mathpix-markdown-it is available on Github.

Markdown Conversion

Overview of our Markdown conversion for STEM.

Markdown to LaTeX

Overview of our Markdown to LaTeX conversion for STEM.

Markdown to DOCX

Markdown to PDF

Overview of our Markdown to PDF conversion for STEM. We support two methods to generate a PDF from Markdown: an HTML based approach, and a LaTeX based approach that allows you to leverage Mathpix Markdown's most powerful LaTeX compatibility features.

OCR

Optical character recognition is the conversion of images of typed, handwritten or printed text into machine-encoded text. Mathpix tools are powered by our OCR technology.

v3/batch

Endpoint to process a multiple images in a single POST request.

v3/latex

Our legacy endpoint for converting images to LaTeX, that was developed before we added support for regular text. It should only be used for images that only have individual equations and no text that needs to be processed.

v3/ocr-results

Endpoint to search results from POST requests to v3/text, v3/strokes, and v3/latex with a GET request on /v3/ocr-results?search-parameters.
