I suggest you ...

Inline math equations.

You would be able to specify inline math using `$` symbol, (just like in IPython notebook markdown). I'm really tired of putting spaces in my paragraphs to make room for symbols.

        We've started development on this! It's implemented so that inline math is generated as soon as you stop editing a text field, which means you get a preview without leaving the editor.

        One concern is that $ is too common a symbol to use as a delimiter and that people may accidentally trigger it. Would it be confusing to use double $$ as a delimiter for inline math? Or is there another more unique delimiter that can be used instead? Appreciate any feedback.

        Same here- this feature is also crucial for me. I don't mind if the support in the editor is not complete - I would like to be able to use pandoc to generate presentations with inline math equations even if I can't edit the equations in the editor

        For those of us desperately needing inline latex in order to be able to move from Beamer to slides.com, could there not be an inline class available just as in the reveal.js plugin? That is, so that we get inline formulas by providing e.g. <div class="formula">\pi^2</div>. This would really help, and would not be difficult at all (since it is already implemented in the standard KaTeX plugin. Fancy interface for writing inline formulas in the editor could be added later.
