Whenever I am going to write an answer or edit someone's post, I am not able to see its preview under the answer writing section in MSE. Why is this happening?

This is the (deprecated) mobile web version of the site; it does not have a preview when editing posts.

To switch back to the full version, click the 'full site' link in the footer. It seems you have a large enough screen to not need using the mobile web version.

  • $\begingroup$ I've hated the mobile web version back when I had an iPhone 4 with its (relatively) tiny screen. And yet, I wrote many an answers on the full version of the site from my phone. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I use desktop. The image was taken from mobile and cropped. Mobile is quite notorious for such usage. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ odd that 'mobile' is depreciated when there is still a link to it in the footer from the 'full site'! $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 27, 2021 at 6:44
