Origin 2023b builds in a SVG-based LaTeX equation tool. This new Insert LaTeX Equation tool does not require users to manually install any extra libraries or softwares. To get rid of problems caused by LaTeX App, it is highly recommended that you upgrade your Origin to version 2023b or later and try the new Insert LaTeX Equation tool. Please refer to this document for more information.
If you still want to stay with LaTeX App, please keep on reading.
