I figured that the help and questions section would be a better place to post my question and to make a more coherent attempt at what I’m wondering. I previously posted a question on the release notes, but will likely delete it. Drafts 15.2 (iOS) Released:
I’m curious about the LaTex support. I spent some time playing around with some things related to LaTex to try to figure out what is supported and how to use the support, but I’m not able to exactly figure it out.
Would it be possible to use LaTex and a saved
.bib (Documentation around BibTex, and Flecher’s documentation with it’s use in MultiMarkdown) file with my reference entries saved in it, call the citation key and potentially have it generate a bibliography and or in-text citations for me using the new functionality? I was playing around with it trying to figure out how I would do it, but not having much luck.
I do a lot of my academic writing in Drafts. I have to hand right the citations and reference list entries because I’ve struggled finding an iPad app that is also a good reference manager and does the things I’d like on iPad even if they do it on the Mac (see Mendely, Readcube Papers, EndNote). I just want to be able to generate the reference list entries (and maybe the in-text citations) in Drafts. I then usually export my writing as HTML and post it into my forums for my university. Works great, but currently I have to write it all out and just do it markdown and convert it. If I could pull the citations that would be awesome, but understand that might be beyond the scope of this.
