How do I write any math symbol in Sketch 3? I want to write them in "text" if I can. If I can't, what else can I do besides of insert pictures? Here are the pictures attached.

Try the Character Palette

If you can insert it via the OS X character palette, you're good.
Other than that, I'm not aware of any math plug-ins for Sketch.

Roll your own

One of Sketch's most lovable features is that you can write plug-ins to do most of what you can dream up. Given math symbol support at the OS level, it seems feasible that a UI could be built to handle the input.

  • Hi, thank you for your advice, I have tried to use Unicode (Character Palette) for some math equation, but it didn't work out. I believe it is better for basic math writing. Mar 8 '16 at 7:29

    @BMWSLAMDUNK: not sure what you expected, then. The character palette shows what characters are available. It has nothing to do with 'equations'. The division in your examples, for example, is not a single "character" or "symbol".

  • @RadLexus Hey, thanks for your reply. But I wonder that how can I type a neat and organized math (like the division in my example) in xcode, I was trying to write it in Sketch 3, then apply it to xcode, however, it is still hard to me to find a way. Mar 9 '16 at 0:36
