    converting to xhtml works like magic

  • Daniel Volinski Nov 2, 2020, 10:53 AM (13 months ago)

    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.
