latex rendering fails when escaped characters are used such as "\t" "\n"

0 votes

Dear PlantUML-team

I was able to set up the latex support, however stumbled upon a surprising behaviour. The following lines as well as every other line I tried which includes a "\t" or "\n" do not render

() theta as "<latex>\theta</latex>"

() nu as "<latex>\nu</latex>"

My guess is that "\t" is also known as the tab character and "\n" as newline and this somehow causes the unexpected behaviour.

So there also may be other characters which similarly hinder the rendering to complete correctly.

Thanks in advance and backwards for all the effort you put into this,

"\left" and "\right" also don't work. E.g.

(math) as "<latex>\left( x^2 \right)</latex>"

will show text instead of formula, leaving out the l of left and r of right.
