Preview entry with math characters

Is there a way to display math characters such as $\mathcal{H}$ with the preview layout ? I feel like it should be done by default, because instead I just get weird characters.

I am also curious about this, seems that this feature is not present even in the latest version?
Is it possible to use TeX disribution for this? I believe most of the JabRef users have it.
Probably it will make things too slow to render .eps or .pdf from LaTeX every time new preview is shown, but it would be nice at least to have a button on the preview tab to render math for current entry.


it depends a bit of which layout you use. The default “Preview” can handle such latex constructs fine.
The other CSL styles are rendered using an external library.
I propose that you crate an issue there
