Just considering the general situation, $ is hard for Org because it needs to do “double duty” as both a currency symbol in text, and math delimiters. This means that it can’t be consistent with how LaTeX works. However, `\( ... \)' doesn’t and so Org can be much more consistent with LaTeX here. Besides which `$ ... $' is a TeX-ism and `\( ... \)' is the /proper/ way of doing inline maths in LaTeX, so really you should be reaching for those anyway. > I ask because if … breaks basic mathematics, I should either return > back to LaTeX for any serious notes or replace every … with … in all my > Org files to avoid accidental breakage of mathematics in the future. Thank you! I’d just use `\( ... \)' in future, and that way you’ll be fine in LaTeX and Org 🙂. You might be able to use `org-element-map' to robustly convert from $ … $= to `\( ... \)'. All the best, Timothy
