Text formatting neceseary for scientific or mathematical equations
I'm writing a scientific description of metabolic processes, and I'd like to be able to have superscripts and scientific characters (alpha, beta, gamma), multiplication via "dot" symbol etc. For example, I'd like to write 57 kJ * mol1 and have that formatted automatically by Sway. I suspect that there will be some folks who will want to use Sway to present technical information, and this would be super helpful. Additionally, I'd like to just type things vs. having to use UI to generate the symbols that I want. So for example, I'd like to type delta G prime = 57 kJ*mol1, and have that formatted automatically for me. That would be AWESOME.
Good points! We will keep on working on ensuring that our users are able to use Sway in professional/educational scenarios.

Oh, this post is more than 3 years ago...
I am wondering if this app is still alive. Why still can't insert equations? No math guy using this?

At a Sway workshop at my university, only to learn that this just won't work for statistics content. Please give us symbol and equation functionality.

ANY updates here? No progress for YEARS????

J. Casteel commented
Please update this soon. We need to be able to use Greek symbols, subscripts, superscripts and more. This is crucial as a teacher.

Any news? It is 3 years since this request and this feature is crucial.

Necessary feature.

Tristan commented
Are there any news on that?
The ability to add Mathematical expressions, properly formated, is crucial for me,

I am copying and pasting from Word to Sway. The math symbols from the formulas already there will not import correctly.

If I'm going to share Sway with the teachers in my district, which is all high school, there needs to be the ability to add mathtype.

It would be really nice to have the ability to type mathematical equations in Sway. Omitting that leaves behind the people who need to use Sway the most and would be adept at putting it to good use in the classroom.

Adding the LaTex Interpreter for Sway would suit me well. As a Educator in Mathematics this would help me add more text. Currently often embedded images of the equations or Geogebra worksheets, but both are time (and bandwidth) consuming in comparison to a LaTex editor.

I would like to reiterate the importance of having a latex interpreter for equations!

Has any progress been made on this? I am chemist and NEED to be able to type using superscripts and subscripts

Annienomous commented
Latex would really be useful. Things like α γ and ⟨x,y⟩ are easily configured using autohotkey, but full latex support would be way better

I wanted to write for example x² on my computer

I'd like to add mathematic equations.
It would be really great if Sway could interprete LaTeX Code.

As a science teacher, I would like support for superscript/subscript. As a work around, I have been typing in up in word, then screenshoting, then cropping, THEN pasting into sway.

Willian commented
I'd like to add one more request: many scientists, specially mathematicians and physicists uses LaTeX when writting papers. So it would be extremelly usefull if Sway were capable of interpreting LaTeX equations and symbols (those who uses LaTeX how fast is to type an equation using it).

Thomas commented
I would need that as well. Especially subscripts and superscripts! Unlike Greek characters, they could not be copied from e.g. Word.

The ability to use equation editor/similar within Sway as it in in Office applications,, or at least for Sway to be able to import formulae made with equation editor without losing formatting, would be very useful to me.
