Hey, so can someone help me figure out this problem; When I'm using the equation bar, and I try to move it sometimes to see what I've wrote above, the cursor gets "stuck" on top of the bar if that makes sense, and it's very frustrating as I sometimes don't copy my work so then I have to refresh and restart. Thanks

    I also have this problem. At first, I am able to let go of the equation bar, but then after a while the mouse and the equation bar sticks together. So now I have to refresh and need to reboot my thinking process again especially when I'm dealing with a long Math Problem. It could be a bug in the code?

    Not happening to me bat but you may try right clicking or ctrl + left click on the border of the equation box to free it

    Have you tried refreshing? Also see if it is okay when you use a different browser. I use to have this problem with my old notebook but mysteriously the problem for me seems to be solved now.

    Refresh does the trick, but that's where the problem lies, I don't want to refresh because all my work gets erased then and now I do take screen shots but for drawings it doesn't work out as it's a link. I use chrome as well, but I will try other browsers, thanks Abhisar :).

    You can click on the menu button on the top right, and click on "About Google Chrome" to check your version.

    I'm on chrome too. This happens a lot with drawing board; the mouse and the drawing window stick together and wont allow me to click mouse anywhere else... For equation editor you may try this in console : ``` $("div.dialog-body div.actions button").click() ```

    If you're happy with that work around, you may add that as short cut... something like pressing <Ctrl>+<x> instead of opening console everytime

    ok so I'm not the only one with this problem. OS has gotten so buggy lately. It wasn't like this back in 2012.

    Chrome is all I got since I am on Chromebook, and this happens to me a lot! Mostly on the drawing tool, which sucks. i been trying to find a way to solve this, and the only way is to move your cursor really fast in circles. After that, there is a slight chance you'll be able to continue, and still a big chance you have to refresh

    if you are having issues with openstudy on chrome consider installing the openstudy beta extension, it is known to fix several openstudy glitches.

    Solution: 1. Rightclick 2. Click wherever you want. Works for me.

    I tried to right click a while back and I will still get the Equation window stuck to my mouse.

    Best way to get around it is to learn some basic \(\LaTeX \) instead of using the equation window.

    @usukidoll If that happens, try to putt your mouse on top of the rightclick menu and then off.

    @aaronq I know LATEX, but the problem is that I have to type my LATEX in the Equation window. Now that I mentioned typing LATEX in the equation window. I hate the brackets. Anyone who does LATEX know that it's $\geq$ but instead of the greater than or equal sign showing up, I have to use the equation window and use OS's brackets for \[\geq \] It gets irritating after a while because sometimes I ask questions on stackexchange first before OS, so it's going to take me longer to type the same thing on OS than to just copy and paste the stackexchange link to my attempted work.
