Question: Are there apps (preferably free) with which you can use standard symbol menus (as in MathCad, e.g.) to code up math formulas and then automatically translate them into LaTeX that could then be pasted into the questions and answers?
Ancillary question: Are there other apps I can use to preview LaTeX before submission? I have yet to see (using Explorer or Chrome) any LaTeX rendered and previewed in my entries before submission, nor any review buttons.
Rant: Using LaTeX reminds me of using assembly language to code with. The point to using assembly language in the old days was to reduce the load on processing for the computer and place it on the programmer. With the speed and memory capacity of modern computers this seems a little silly now.
