2 questions now: I didn't want to close the question I have listed last because I still see it as a problem. So anyways the other question is: What is the point in having to wait for your question to be closed before you can ask another one in the feedback group? That seems a little weird to me. How do I make the window for copying the LaTeX show for more than a second so I can actually copy it without retyping everything?

    Ok pretend like I put \[x=\ln(\frac{5 \pm \sqrt{17}}{4})\]

    But when I try to copy it the window does not stay open long enough for me to actually copy it

    Why would you need to "copy" it? Doesn't it just re-appear in the text box after you hit the "insert" button?

    When I right click on the image, it gives me an option to go to "show math as" and then "TeX commands" I can copy things just fine from this window without it closing. \[x=\ln(\frac{5 \pm \sqrt{17}}{4})\]

    Sometimes I want to use something I put in LaTeX over again but I have to retype it all because the freakin' window doesn't stay open long enough and it won't let me open the window so I can copy anything.

    Yeah, mine does strange things when I click that too. My window doesn't automatically display when I click that. I have to literally right click on the auto-minimized window and hit "maximize" in order to see anything. But it allows me enough time to copy and it doesn't disappear until I want it to.

    myininaya: I also use chrome as use the same method that KingGeorge described above, i.e.: When I right click on the image, it gives me an option to go to "show math as" and then "TeX commands" I can copy things just fine from this window without it closing. It works fine for me.

    @myininaya Thank you so much for putting this on. I've been wondering about the same things like "Closing" suggestions and feedbacks are simply pointless, since they may not have been solved, or are good enough to be used later. So makes sense to exempt this group from the single-question system, or we can have a limit of upto 2-3 or likewise no. of threads 'open' at a time. @FoolForMath As for the next one, in my case when I right-click on the LaTeX equation, and and click on "MathML Codes" or "TeX commands" under "Show Math As", a new window opens up, but am unable to maximize that when I click on it, but it stays on the taskbar. may be what you posted should help me out, I use Chrome as well.

    Hey ! This closing and opening of question is indeed a problem of many. But even today we just have the same option , so only mods can bring about the change. Lets hope for the best. And as far as latex is concerned , ask @apoorvk or @lgbasallote , they are pretty good at it ! :p

    No, @anjali_pant we just know how code, (atleast me), but the internal details of why the TeX commands aren't showing up, if there's bug or what the technicalities are, I am pretty "illiterate" about that!

    Hey guys, So as @asnaseer mentioned, this is a bug that has been filed on MathJAX. We pull our copy of MathJAX from their servers - so we have the latest code. However, the bug was only fixed a week ago, and it doesn't look like there has been a release since then. Whenever they release the next version of MathJAX this will automagically be fixed on OpenStudy.

    Oh, also: "What is the point and having to wait for your question to be closed before you can ask another one in the feedback group? That seems a little weird to me." My response to that question is simply that we didn't see the point in coding an exception specifically for Feedback. The benefit didn't seem to justify the effort, as it were.
