Markdown convertion optimized for scientific documents

Since Mathpix Markdown is a strict superset of Markdown, our conversion tooling for MMD is more powerful than what is possible with standard Markdown.

Document with an equation

Equations

Advanced support for math, physics, and statistics expressions via Mathjax, including equation references via the \eqref, \label, \ref commands

Document with a table

Tables

Full support for LaTeX style tabular environments in addition to Markdown style tables

Document with an image

Images

Figures are preserved in the output documents as expected; for LaTeX outputs, which are returned as compressed zip files, they are put in a special images folder

Our Markdown to LaTeX conversion tools

Digitize and convert documents in-app or use our command line tool for local conversion.

  • Convert PDFs to Markdown, export to LaTeX

    Upload a PDF to our Snip web app to get it digitized to Mathpix Markdown. Make your edits using our lightweight markup language, and export to LaTeX.

  • Create Notes from scratch

    Using Markdown for creating your notes is faster and more efficient, than doing the same in LaTeX. Markdown is simple, straight-forward, and unobtrusive language. The best part is you can still export the result to LaTeX anytime.
