    • To insert a formatting template (subscript, superscript, fraction, etc.)

    • To insert chemistry symbols (reaction arrow, equilibrium arrow, etc.)
      ⟶ Forward reaction arrow
      ⇌ Equilibrium arrow

    • To insert Greek letter (alpha, beta, gamma, delta etc.)
    Click and select Or enter a keyboard shortcut
