    More details

    Include basic support for LaTeX within Confluence. This app renders math client-side using MathJax. Please see LaTeX Math for more features such as faster (server-side) render, support for exporting to PDF/Word, more macros, and more options for customizing your experience. The full version is available for both Cloud and Server and besides a full feature set has received excellent reviews. If you decide to upgrade to the full version later, your LaTeX Math Lite macros will continue to work. (But please disable LaTeX Math Lite before installing/enabling LaTeX Math to avoid macro conflicts)

    I want to know the difference between this plugin and LATEX Math, waiting for your reply.

    Thanks for the interest. The Lite version of LaTeX Math renders macros client-side, which requires fewer of our server resources, but due to various Confluence limitations does not offer as smooth of a user experience as the full version.

    The advantages to using the full version include:
    • Support for PDF and Word export
    • Proper vertical alignment of inline equations
    • More complete LaTeX syntax support
    • User defined commands that can be used across the entire Confluence instance
    • Faster macro rendering, especially with many macros on one page
    • Custom templates for numbering and math block layout

    We have been using this for online math documentation and it has been working reasonably well. Rendering speed is not great, but works well enough, and it does do everything that we need. I avoid using the inline rendering because it does not match the text, but the block text works well. Some of the other reviews identify problems with preview and with the new versions of Confluence. We have had some of those problems, but they have been getting fixed, and Bolo was very responsive in addressing an issue we found with previews of block equations larger than a minimal size. So not fancy but gets done what we need. We will keep using it, though at some point we may upgrade to the non-Lite "LaTeX Math".

    Very buggy, slooooooow plugin. You have to wait forever while it loads on the page.... if it loads without errors... Inline rendering looks poor as it doesn't match text position (Latex equations displayed higher than normal text). It is shame to take money for this beta... However, it is shame that confluence doesn't have LaTeX support out of box...

    Hi Vladimir, I'm sorry you had a bad experience with LaTeX Math Lite. If you encounter bugs please let us know at help@bolo-software.com.

    Please consider that LaTeX Math Lite's low price is possible by rendering the equations client-side (in the browser). This however comes with some limitations. Regarding the vertical alignment of macros, unfortunately Confluence does not allow proper vertical alignment of macros that are rendered client-side (see here). Regarding render speed, again everything is rendered client side, which does take some time if there are many equations on a page. However, MathJax 3 has just been released and promises faster render times, so a significant improvement may be coming soon to LaTeX Math Lite's rendering speed.

    Edit: I found a stability issue that might have been affecting macro rendering for a few days now. This should be solved now.

    Only supports the old confluence page design, not the new "smart" confluence pages which are now default. That is, the plugin is not showing up a.k.a. nowhere to be found when working in a new smart confluence page. Also, Confluence has this bug: "Due to this bug in Confluence, these characters cannot be used: ^{}". Making it impossible to write any proper LaTeX.

    Atlassian released a fix to Confluence two days ago that solves the issue affecting math blocks in the new editor: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-65717

    There is a second issue (CONFCLOUD-58280) affecting all add-ons in the new editor, which is that the new macros do not show up right away after installing the add-on. If you do not see any any latex math macros when typing "/latex" then please try a hard refresh of the editor.

    Please note that the issue with ^{} characters only affects inline macros. We are currently looking into a workaround for this issue that should be available soon.

    In the future we can provide the best support if you contact us at help@bolo-software.com.

    Only the inline equation seems to work in cloud confluence.

    The bug in the new Confluence editor has finally been solved, so now both inline and block macros work. See here for more details: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-65717

    Pricing FAQ

    How does cloud app pricing work?

    Cloud apps are sold as a monthly or annual subscription. You are eligible for support and automatic version updates as long as your subscription is active.

    When your subscription renews each month, you are automatically billed for apps based on the number of users in your instance.

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my cloud pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your Atlassian product. Confluence Cloud apps are priced based on the number of Confluence users on your instance. For example, if you have Confluence Cloud (25 users), you pay the 25-user price for apps.

    The pricing structure for cloud apps is as follows:

    • Monthly subscriptions with up to 10 Atlassian product users are billed at a flat rate price.
    • Monthly subscriptions with more than 10 users are billed per user, starting at the first user.
    • Monthly subscriptions with more than 100 users are billed per user. The table above provides example pricing at various user levels.

    Annual subscriptions may offer a discount depending on the number of users purchased.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses for cloud apps?

    Yes. Academic, community, and open source licenses are available to qualifying organizations. See our Purchasing & Licensing FAQ for more information.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For cloud apps, you cannot extend your free evaluation period. All cloud apps are immediately subscribed by a user, and we provide a free evaluation period. This is a minimum of 30 days and ends on the second billing cycle after you first subscribe to the app.
