TeX Match is a powerful tool that can help you quickly find and insert LaTeX symbols into your documents. Additionally, it is cross-platform, so you can use it on Windows, Mac, or Linux. If you work with LaTeX, you know that it can be difficult to remember the names of all the symbols you need. With TeX Match, you can simply sketch the symbol you want, and the tool will search through over 1000 different LaTeX symbols to find the one you need.
Once you have found the desired symbol, you can easily copy it to your clipboard by clicking on the corresponding entry. TeX Match is based on detexify and is powered by a port of the detexify classifier. It includes over 1000 LaTeX symbols from multiple packages, which is the same set as detexify.
One of the best things about TeX Match is that it is completely offline, which means you don’t need to be connected to the internet to use it.
