When I want to write displayed math equations using ```math zulip is very annoying in auto-completing math to mathematica. Is there any way to change this? Does anyone ever write mathematica code?

@Rob Lewis :-)

Am I pinged for Zulip expertise or Mathematica expertise? :smile:

Adam Topaz (Dec 16 2020 at 21:36):

Maybe I should clarify: "Does anyone ever write mathematica code in the lean zulip server?"

Rob Lewis (Dec 16 2020 at 21:36):

Regardless, I think the answer is no, nobody ever writes Mathematica code (here), and no, there's no way to change it.

Rob Lewis (Dec 16 2020 at 21:37):

You could open an issue at Zulip about the over agressive autocompletion I guess

Mario Carneiro (Dec 16 2020 at 21:37):

I write mathematica code... just not on zulip

Adam Topaz (Dec 16 2020 at 21:40):

I don't mind the autocompletion per se, but it seems there is no easy way to cancel it. It would be just fine if I could press escape to kill the autocompletion suggestions.

Adam Topaz (Dec 16 2020 at 21:41):

Actually, I'm trying it again now, and escape does kill it, but it opens up again when you press enter to make a new line.

The Zulip devs are friendly and usually happy to take feedback like this.
