  • Use the up/down arrow icons to arrange the filters in the order in which they should be applied.

Tip: The 'Off but available' setting is useful when maths teachers want the TeX notation filter but no-one else does, or if you only want emoticons for use in social forums.


Certain filters have additional settings, which can be accessed via the links in the settings column.
