    However, the built-in previewer doesn't support citations (which is a Pandoc-specific feature), so if you need (to preview) them you can use an alternative Pandoc-based Markdown preview, for example Document Preview (by me) or Markdown Preview Enhanced (not by me). Both support Mermaid, mine might be a bit harder to set up right now as it's not well documented yet. If you don't care about citations you should be fine using built-in previewer though.
  • how to use Mathjax as the default markdown rendering method in VS code
    2 projects | /r/vscode | 19 Jun 2022
    I am thinking about this question for a long time... In GitHub vscode issues, this post said that the developers of the vscode don't have a plan to support Mathjax in the near future. However, in Markdown Preview Enhanced extension, the author of this extension provided Mathjax as one of the math rendering options MPE. The reason why I didn't use this extension is that it has an annoying bug when I tried to use the autonumbering function to reference my equations. Details can be seen in this issue page post.
