# How do I input greek letters in Drafts?

I tried the Markdown syntax, e.g. \alpha, but could not get the Greek letter alpha in the preview.
Could I input greek letters in Drafts at all?

Thanks!

That is LaTeX syntax, not Markdown. Some particular setups may support this, but it is supporting embedding of LaTeX syntax.

MathJax is a common way of approaching the inclusion and translation of LaTeX mathematical syntax, and there is an action in the directory for this.

If you only want Greek letters, a couple of simple alternatives could be:

• The Greek keyboard on iOS or a symbol insertion utility on macOS.
• Use an HTML entity code (e.g. &alpha;)

Hope that helps.

Helps a lot!
Many thanks!
