I don't know of a plug-in to integrate TEX/LaTEX equations at all, much less editing of them. However, you can download LyX, which is basically a word processor that can use TEX/LaTex equations and export them as PDFs that can then be linked in ID and would update when there are changes. It is a free solution.https://www.lyx.org/Home MathType can also be used and is, to me, a low-cost solution and is what I have used in the past.Mike

Hi ociecg, In-TeX/LaTeX is a JavaScript tool to compile LaTeX codes (not only math equations) to PDF in InDesign, it can run both in macOS and Windows.

By @rosswgray13-83

 

Agreed. It's a long-standing request from uers.

But given that Adobe hasn't improved InDesign's basic XML/database publishing tools during the past 10 years, I wouldn't wait for them to do anything for LaTeX.

 

Search the www.InDesign.UserVoice.com forum for LaTeX feature requests and either vote for the feature or start a new feature request. But you'll have to drum up a lot of votes for it to get Adobe's attention, 100+ votes.
