Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Everytime you type in an letter or a number it just 'deselects' 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hm. Odd. I'm not seeing the issue with typing dropping the letter.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think it happens when you type something in the equation editor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh wait heh. I'm on Chrome Canary. Two seconds.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hm. No, still nothing. I can type normally. Can you tell me which version of Chrome by any chance?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I've tested on chrome canary too , its the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0… 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?

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Strange. This is Windows or Mac?

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hm. I suppose that may be the difference, but that would surprise me.

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll ask the other guys to look into it and see if they can reproduce it or if we're going to want to use a Windows VM to see if we can make it happen there.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hey Sam, shadow asked me to look at this further.

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To be clear, you're typing *in* the box in the equation editor, right?

farmdawgnation
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok. Two seconds.

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[e^2 + 3nt\] \[204o430d3\] Ok. Both of these worked without incident. Do you know how to check the error console in Chrome? If you know about Chrome Canary I figure you might. hehe.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@KingGeorge I was about to say that too :D

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Other chrome window? I'm a bit lost here. heh.

KingGeorge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I minimize the other window, it just deselects the textbox in the equation editor without switching windows.

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So you have two windows with OpenStudy open, and you are getting kicked in between them?

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Still not s'much :/

KingGeorge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One window has OpenStudy and the other window has email/music/videos.

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, are you seeing anything telling in the error console?

.Sam.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There's no error but there's warning

KingGeorge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not particularly. Whenever I type something it just says "typesetting math: 100%" and then deselects the editor.

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@.Sam. I don't expect the warning to be particularly telling, but if you want to copy and paste it in here, that might be good. @KingGeorge Are you running on Windows as well?

KingGeorge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@farmdawgnation should I post the warning here? its quite long

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Give me the first line or two. If I need the whole thing I can get you to email it or something.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can either of you tell me if refreshing the entire page fixes the problem?

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Got your warning in my DM Sam. That's nothing to be concerned about. Hmm. But yeah. Refreshing?

KingGeorge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Refreshing doesn't fix it for me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one more thing , but don't know if its related to this or not, Screenshot of what I see in canary, but not in chrome beta

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That seems like it would be an unrelated issue. It looks like there's some weird font stuff going on in Windows. We'll definitely need to look into that.

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm firing up a Windows VM to check what I see in Chrome.

KingGeorge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Another unrelated bug: The chat window seems to be bugged, and won't say how many new questions have been asked in other groups.

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah, we found that one, I think mattfeury is on it.

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, I was able to confirm this bug exists in Chrome/Windows, but not in Chrome/Mac. That's very annoying. heh.

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@.Sam. Is 19 a beta? I have 19 on the mac that reports itself as a stable. o.O

.Sam.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm using chrome 20 beta,

KingGeorge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just haven't updated to 20 yet.

farmdawgnation
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Right, but your version is reporting itself as a beta, yeah? Could you try using a stable version of chrome and seeing if the problem persists?

farmdawgnation
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I just want to see if there is an off chance that the problem may only exist on the beta channel.

.Sam.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm using chrome 19 right now, its still same

.Sam.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The problem only occurs when I use the equation editor

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Alright, I've confirmed the issue and filed it. We'll try to get it fixed ASAP. Thanks for your help. (You too, @KingGeorge)

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It works properly in Firefox or the bug also exists in firefox?

.Sam.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there's no bug for firefox, except for the summation sign is not there

KingGeorge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also, if you're directly typing the LaTeX into the reply box, it's fine. It's just the equation editor.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why does it say all the posts in this thread were posted yesterday?

farmdawgnation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Er. Interesting. The only way that makes sense is if the relative timestamps are, for some reason, being calculated from UTC and not your local timezone. I'm seeing it too. o.O
