Usage (without browser extension)


It is recommended to use this Jira app with browser extension, since the combination provides the flexibility to write LaTeX in everwhere: Summary, Description, Comment, custom fields, etc. Please see the instructions here


After installing and starting the trial period, the app will add a custom field name LaTeX text to the Jira instance.

The first step is to add the custom field LaTeX text to issue types and projects.

For classic Jira projects

Associate the LaTeX custom field to issue screens

Navigate to the Custom fields page.

Search for the custom field LaTeX text and add it to screens.

Add the LaTeX panel to the issue screen

On an issue view, click on the “three dots” icon and select LaTeX.

For Next-gen Jira projects

Click on Project settings on the left sidebar.

On the Project settings page, click on Apps on the left sidebar.

Click on App fields on the left sidebar and enable LaTeX for Jira Cloud.

Go back to the Project settings page, click on Issue types on the left sidebar.

Drag the LaTeX text field from the right sidebar and drop it into the Description fields area.

Add LaTeX formulas to an issue

Click on the Edit button.

Please do not edit the custom field itself. Whenever you want to add or modify the formulas, please use the app’s Edit button.

The LaTeX content is wrapped around by {latex}…{latex}.

Sample content:

ax^2 + bx + c = 0

x = \frac{{ - b \pm \sqrt {b^2 - 4ac} }}{{2a}}

After that, click Save.
