Thanks for the info! Can confirm now that I tried this (I don't usually use RStudio). That's an RStudio issue then. My guess is that 'Preview' uses tools::Rd2HTML() and that indeed won't automatically understand macros coming from mathjaxr (or any add-on package for that matter). This would be an issue to raise with the RStudio folks then.

But once a package is installed, the equations are nicely rendered also in the RStudio help browser, so that part works.
