Attaching LaTeX expressions to a task

Hello--I am a math student using Toodledo. The substance of many of my tasks is mathematical, and difficult to write down without math symbols. E.g. a task might be, "prove that $\int_{\R}f = \int_0^\infty \lambda(\alpha)d\alpha$, where $\lambda(\alpha):=m(\{f>\alpha\})$". It's difficult to think of a way to really write down this task in English without belaboring it. I assume that Toodledo will not display math symbols. Google docs will, and gmail will. How might I input a task such as this, perhaps making use of links to these other programs?

I do not think that this is possible. It is the first time that this has been requested. My gut tells me that I would probably require a fair amount of work on our end. My suggestion is to put a link to your Google document in the note of the task and link to it there.

You might find that certain kinds of expressions keep popping up in your work. I would recommend that you write LaTeX macros for the things you work with most --For example, when I was working on certain "performance" expressions, I wrote a \perf{}{} macro that let me know at a glance that I was addressing performance and standardized the parameters that mattered to me -- Not a perfect solution, but it will allow you to spot similarities and differences easier when the expressions are still in LaTeX and aren't converted to the desired output
