Whether to consider adding a new feature: users can insert formulas through Latex code instead of Mathtype . Because it is not possible to use Mathtype after updating to Catalina.For people like me who are used to writing formulas with Latex, inserting formulas is a bit difficult.I'm new to Scrivener, maybe there are other ways I don't know to solve my problems in this software.I hope you can understand what I mean.

You can insert raw LaTeX in your project and have the Compile command pass it through to the post-processor of your choice. However, Scrivener can't interpret LaTeX itself, so it can't show you what the equation will look like. See Chapter 21 in the Scrivener manual for more information about this kind of workflow.
