Any idea why $\{$ or $\}$ doesn't work anymore in latex on Math Stack ? (it seems to work here on meta however) When I write it, just nothing appear. Moreover, since a certain time, I realized that the automatic latex compilation became very slow on the Math Stack. Am I the only one who has this problem ? I have a MacBook Pro, Version Ventura 13.0.1 and Chrome Version 119.0.6045.199

  • $\begingroup$ You are right that if you type ${}$ nothing appears in the preview pane until you put something inside the {}. If you want to see the { and } in maths-mode you have to qualify them as in $\{\}$. But just typing { and } (not in maths-mode) should work. $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 11 at 11:00
