What is TeX Match?

If you work with LaTeX, you know its difficult to memorize the names of all the symbols. TeX Match allows you to search through over 1000 different LaTeX symbols by sketching. Once you found the desired symbol you can copy it to the clipboard by clicking on the entry. TeX Match is based of detexify and is powered by a port of the detexify classifier.


  • Over 1000 LaTeX symbols across multiple packages (same set as detexify)
  • Completely offline
  • Crossplatform
