It would be great if you can add a equation writer feature, like a latex interpreter or something like that. It would be useful for engineers.

That's the first thing I thought. As a math teacher, symbolic notation is crucial to information processing.

As an Electrical Engineering student that needs to collaborate with teammates on advanced programming state machines and math topics, I just want to second this suggestion! I am utilizing the free version, but am contemplating a paid account. Thanks btw for this awesome product.

It would be so great to have a feature like that. In my field of studies it is absolutely neccessary to work with long equations. An integrated LaTex editor would be awesome.

I also would find extremely helpful to be able to insert formulas directly in Latex style. I am currently inserting images with the formulas but is a less ideal way.

This would expand the applications for which I use LucidChart, I would use this.

Google's "" already does LaTex in its version of Lucidchart..  (ie: LaTex expressions Inline in the text of labels).

Since  is open source (and free) ...   Lucidchart should be able to have LaTex without waiting any longer.....

This is crucial. Need to have math symbols such as delta and degrees available in text formatting.

It is usefulness for me without the pretty formatted equations in Latex.

The equation editing (using raw LaTaX) function is really crucial to me, please add it. I think MathJax is a very good choice for implementing this.

Something that you can use now in a text box in LucidChart is the Alt-Codes: These will help you produce most equations (minus fractions). For instance hit Alt-0176 to generate a degree symbol.

Hope it helps.

A way to have equations in the chart is a no-brainer. If it could use latex syntax, it would be wonderful.
