Rendering of AsciiMath seems to require JLatexMath

asked Jul 18, 2018 in Bug by yuwash

When running latest (1.2018.8) plantuml on a file that just contains one of the AsciiMath examples, it shows error java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.scilab.forge.jlatexmath.TeXFormula. I din't download the JLatexMath jars because they're not needed for AsciiMath according to the documentation. It still creates an output, but the formula is just rendered plaintext, with math syntax removed.

The complete stack trace is:

The doc is probably not clear enough : you do have to download JLatexMath jars to make AsciiMath working.

Would be nice to have the commands like startmath / startlatex also documented in the pdf file.
