I'm writing an online book in a Mathematica template and would like to display equations using Szabolcs' wonderful MaTeX (LaTeX typesetting in Mathematica) because the readability is superior to the default from Mathematica. Thus I use:

SetOptions[MaTeX, "Magnification" -> 1.5];

This gives me the typography I seek:

MaTeX[HoldForm[Integrate[x^2, x] = x^3/3]]


I can then collapse the paired cells so that only the typeset equation is visible.


However, I want such an equation to be in the EquationNumbered style, complete with automatic numbering. Right now I have to hand select each such typeset cell and use the pull-down menu to change its style to EquationNumbered.

I thought the right approach would be:

  MaTeX[HoldForm[Integrate[x^2, x] = x^3/3]]]]

but that does not work.

Question: How do I programmatically create an EquationNumbered that nevertheless has the style of MaTeX?

  • $\begingroup$ It is also possible to edit the stylesheets to get the box ratios/fonts/layout nicer. I did that a few years back and it’s really paid off. I do all of my writing in Mathematica first now and then transfer to LaTeX for the second draft since it is much nicer/easier/less buggy to explore and edit iteratively in Mathematica for me $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @b3m2a1: If you have stylesheets available, or can point to one online, I'd love to see it. I really need a style that mimics the Mathematica blue "reference" definitions of functions. (I don't know Mathematica didn't include that in the as a Style.) $\endgroup$ May 28, 2021 at 23:14

Ah... I think I figured it out:

 ExpressionCell[MaTeX[HoldForm[Integrate[x^2, x] = x^3/3]],
