    Everytime you type in an letter or a number it just 'de-selects' the equation editor, making further writing not possible, however if you 'click' back the equation editor, you still can type again, but its annoying, everytime you type in one letter or number it just deselects it

    … Very odd. I'm having issues with neither 19 or Canary. So what's happening is you hit the equation button, type anything, and then if you type anything else the text box is no longer selected, correct?

    I think I'm getting the same issue. When I try to type something in the editor, it switches to the other chrome window I have open. However, it doesn't do that if you put { and start typing what you need. Just hit } when you're done, and you'll only have to deal with the problem once.

    It gets hung up while typesetting the math for me. If I type fast enough to avoid having it do that, there's no problem at all. Also running windows.
