@F0x1: @ElioPrrl: @Izno: Hello. I would just like to draw your attention to some work we are doing in this area to support the (v/h)phantom commands (phab:T261215).

With respect to the commands explicitly mentioned in the wish:

What we can support now:

  • vphantom (see above)
  • smash
  • substack
  • multline
  • split

What is not supported in MathJax 2 but is in 3 (we would need to complete phab:T237516 to do this):

  • hfill
  • hdots

What we might not be able to do:

  • raisebox (this isn't supported in either MathJax 2 or 3)
  • bigint (I assume you are referring to the bigints extension which I don't think MathJax supports)

Also, other than the ones explicitly mentioned, were there any others you would like to be supported?

I'm glad to know that, even if it the wish has not been retained in the prioritized proposals, it has not been fully abandoned! Thank you very much!Thank you very much! for your work! I haven't got other ideas than the ones I already gave in the proposal, but I think that, at the end of the day, the ideal would be to support all the AMS commands? — ElioPrrl (talk) 14:09, 19 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Based on what MathJax 2 currently supports here are the AMSmath commands that I believe we could support:
Individual commands:
  • \notag
  • \nobreakspace
  • \dddot
  • \substack
  • \ref
  • \idotsint
  • \negmedspace
  • \rvert
  • \lvert
  • \shoveright
  • \shoveleft
  • \DeclareMathOperator (on second thoughts, I am not sure about this)
  • \label
  • \eqref
  • \mathring
  • \negthickspace
  • \boxed
  • \genfrac
  • \tag

Released support for subset of commands[edit]

Hello all, thank you for participating in the wishlist and for your communication about the commands that need to be supported. We have deployed partial support of what was asked, feel free to check out the sandbox demo here. Huge thank you to @DWalden (WMF). Let us know if you have any feedback or questions! Thanks again, NRodriguez (WMF) (talk) 20:03, 7 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Also thank you to @Physikerwelt without whom this change would not have been possible. DWalden (WMF) (talk) 11:32, 8 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
