I have HTML in my database which has MathML, and I queried it to create DOCX.  Using variables, I am able to use addMathEquation and replaceVariableByWordFragment to include the equations into the DOCX. createDocx is successful.

Then I also need a PDF version, so I run it through transformDocument. However, the equations disappeared from the PDF.

I have tried using "native" and "libreoffice" types, same issue.

I then tried using Dompdf, but no improvment.

How do I code it so that maths equations are visible correctly in the PDF?

The conversion plugin based on LibreOffice supports transforming equations to PDF. Maybe you are using an old version of LibreOffice or setting some style that makes them disappear? Please send a DOCX sample to contact[at] and we'll check it.
