Could there be a selection box / button just below the editing box, and before the Markdown Preview to enable / disable the MathJax.

When I was editing a question, I was finding it quite distracting that ever time I typed something, the box jumped about because of the height of the MathJax. It had o refresh every time, and this was quite irritating.

I would like to be able to enable / disable the MathJax sections before I have finished editing - perhaps with a toggling button or a check box.

  • $\begingroup$ You can find out on Wikipedia what bookmaklet is. But for this particular bookmarklet, if you follow the links you will find detailed description and installation instuctions written by robjohn. $\endgroup$ Feb 27, 2015 at 10:11

    $\begingroup$ BTW the linked question MathJax makes preview flicker could be almost considered a duplicate. The only difference is that in the other feature request, this is only one of the two proposed solutions for this problem. $\endgroup$ Feb 27, 2015 at 10:15
