I was wondering if it is possible to see the original Tex-code of questions/answers?

    $\begingroup$ Click on the "edit" link to see the source. There is also a "Source" link for each revision in the revision history (.../posts/123456/revisions, where 123456 shall be replaced with the post-id). $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Jun 10 '15 at 9:37

    $\begingroup$ Or if you want to see source for one single formula, you can right-click on it and choose "Show Math As > TeX Commands". $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Jun 10 '15 at 9:46

  • $\begingroup$ This is show among related questions: Can you copy paste tex code from the question without going the “view source” route?. However, from the answers there I guess that it was posted before all users got the ability to edit posts. (If I am not mistaken, even new users are now allowed to use edit button. This is also menioned in this answer) $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Jun 10 '15 at 9:56

    $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak You are right even non-users can suggest edits. But it can still be an issue on meta where there are no suggested edits (this is an issue rarely, but one should keep it in mind especially when answering to "how can I make..." questions here. ) $\endgroup$ – quid Jun 10 '15 at 10:22
