Archimedes is a Markdown editor designed to make mathematical writing easy with inline LaTeX support.
MARKDOWN EDITING
At its core, Archimedes is a fully-featured plain text and Markdown editor. It includes a fast syntax highlighter and provides convenient keyboard shortcuts for common actions, such as inserting images and links. With complete support for Markdown, Archimedes makes formatting and structuring documents elegant and easy.
MATH MODE + AUTOCOMPLETE
In Math Mode, Archimedes lets you write mathematics in a subset of LaTeX. Just enter $$ to get started. Over 700 intuitive commands, such as \sqrt{a^2 + b^2}, help you produce stunning mathematical output. Archimedes even autocompletes commands and intelligently matches closing braces, brackets, and parenthesis as you type.
MAGIC TYPE
Just getting started with LaTeX syntax? Don't know the code for the asymptotically equal symbol? Use your MacBook's trackpad or Magic Trackpad to draw it! Archimedes will recognize the symbol and insert the corresponding code for you.
LIVE PREVIEW
As you work, a beautifully-typeset live preview of your document is always visible. You can even switch between horizontal or vertical orientation and select a custom theme, and Dark Mode is fully supported. Themes come with various font faces.
MATH LIBRARY
Browse the math library to see all available LaTeX commands and their previews in one place.
MACROS
Archimedes lets you define macros -- or custom commands -- for the expressions you work with the most. Macros show up in autocompletion results right alongside built-in completions.
NAVIGATOR
Working on a long document? Use the Navigator to pull up a table of contents and quickly jump between sections.
SHARING
Share your work with the rest of the world via email, iMessage, or AirDrop. Or export a PDF or HTML document to disk.
ERROR CHECKING
New to TeX? Archimedes checks for errors as you type to help you write error-free mathematical expressions.
STATISTICS
View document statistics such as character count, word count, and reading time.
SEARCH
Use the Find panel to find and replace text in any document.
KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS
Take advantage of keyboard shortcuts to quickly navigate the app.
SNIPPET EDITOR
The Snippet Editor allows you to typeset mathematical expressions without the overhead of a full Archimedes document. Use the Copy Vector button to export the typeset math as a vector graphic.
SYNC
Sync documents with Archimedes for iPad over iCloud and resume your work right where you left off.
