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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Have 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Refresh 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 :).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'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.dialogbody div.actions button").click() ```

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Best way to get around it is to learn some basic \(\LaTeX \) instead of using the equation window.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@usukidoll If that happens, try to putt your mouse on top of the rightclick menu and then off.

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