    Initially, I'd like to express gratitude for Writer2xhtml—it's a tool I appreciate. I do have an inquiry regarding the mathematical formulas, though. While I can successfully edit them using LibreOffice and they display correctly, upon publishing as either epub or XHTML using the respective buttons, I've observed that the pages containing the math formulas appear larger than normal. Despite toggling MathJax on/off, the formulas remain unchanged, suggesting that MathJax seems not affect. I'm uncertain whether this is a significant issue or not, but I haven't been able to resolve it. Additionally, I've noticed that the presence of "empty space" denoted by either "'" or "~" seems to widen the page. Is there a solution to rectify this?

      One morething, after adjusting the formula size to be smaller in LibreOffice Writer to accommodate longer formulas, everything appears satisfactory within the Writer interface. However, upon exporting to ePub or viewing on a webpage, the formula size appears larger than intended.

    I found the Use MathJax option for the html part so now the equations are OK in html. I did not find such option in epub so they are still garbled up in epub. With respect to the pictures, is there any option to make them OK? Thanks.

    I installed the extension Writer2xhtml but the result is less that satisfactory. The formulas are all garbled up, both inline and numerated. The pictures don't contain any picture, only text. This is not working for me.
