org-preview-latex-fragment is really great but what is even better is that it also works outside org-mode! This makes my life a lot easier.

I set "C-c P" as a global key-binding for org-preview-latex-fragment and "C-c p" to org-ctrl-c-ctrl-c. Then I can preview equations all equations in ANY buffer with "C-u C-u C-c P". It's great to write equations in comments of some programming buffer (no matter which programming language) and being able to render the equations right there. -- Darlan At Sun, 13 May 2012 00:46:51 +0200, Daimrod <daim...@gmail.com> wrote: > > Dov Grobgeld <dov.grobg...@gmail.com> writes: > > > Is there any way of getting org-mode to display inline LaTeX fragments > > in the emacs buffer?
