Suggestion for a small change that will go a long way? I answer a lot of questions in the Mathematics section, so I find myself using the equation tool often. However, theres one little problem that frustrates me often with this tool. Whenever you input something into the equation solver, the page automatically scrolls down to the bottom where your answer is being typed. This makes it very difficult for me to copy equations in the question, because I have to repeatedly scroll up to their question several times to input a small piece of their equation, then I get pushed back down and have to

    You could temporarily copy/paste what they wrote into your response so you have a reference that's easily visible. Just remember to delete it before you post.

    Yes, I guess thats a decent "solution" but it just seems like something that shouldn't be necessary to me
