I am delighted that you are considering this issue. I am slightly red/green color blind. It is nearly impossible for me to see the block quotes on math.stackexchange. A light grey background would solve the problem completely for me. A solid or dotted black line along, say, the left the border could serve to distinguish a block quote from piece of computer ...

I wrote this Python script to make life easier. The stable version is v0.4 This script is far from prefect, so maybe you will meet many kinds of problems. (Because it's for my personal usage.) Effect: Ctrl+A,Ctrl+C double click the script Ctrl+V just now I remove the \left and \right.

Revision 3. This one actually has a working loop, and uses jQuery instead of directly injecting a script element. Unfortunately, it seems that new chat messages no longer trigger the ajaxComplete event, so my hack has to be replaced with a different one. This one runs MathJax on a 1-second cycle. Bookmarklet: javascript:(function()%7Bif(window.MathJax===...

From the top of my head: Ilmari Karonen is the maintainer of SOUP that patches various glitches on SE-sites, some specific to this site. See the user page for details. robjohn has developed a tool, known under the name CatChase ChatJax, so that math renders in chat. As far as I know it is widely used, and makes chat a lot more useful for some. See a meta ...

I'm not certain exactly what you are looking for. There are a few ways which I can see interpreting what you're asking for. How to implement it, or what to use, is going to depend on what you want and what's comfortable for you. Bookmarklet(s) Your code currently replaces the content of the text area with the text you've put in the bookmarklet. Personally, ...

I have always used AutoReviewComments with great pleasure. It sounds like it would exactly fit your wishes. It is completely configurable using a text editor, using which you can easily include your favourites from the list of comment templates. As an aside, to save you time copy-pasting in general, you could look into using a clipboard history like ClipX. ...

The comment by @Martin Sleziak basically answered my question. I recovered the script through the Wayback Machine using the most up-to-date archived version. I then made some minor changes to the script to make it work without hosting it at a webserver and voilĂ , it works so far. If the actual author of the script sees any problem in this and doesn't want ...

There is ChatJax++ now, a user script that enables MathJax in SE chat in a smart way, i.e. it requires no user interaction and renders new messages automatically.

I've been contributing to a userscript which adds side-by-side editing functionality to Stack Exchange. It can be toggled on and off by clicking a new button in the editor and works when writing new as well as editing existing questions and answers. Screenshot More info can be found over at StackApps SE.

This is not an answer to the original question, but does not quite fit into a comment, and yet it is an extremely useful and fully customizable tool to solve the hard-to-see issue immediately. If you use GreaseMonkey and know CSS, you can easily fix such issues with any site you use. Just create a new userscript as follows: // ==UserScript== // @name ...

For those of us who struggle to get ChatJax running on an iPad, you need to fake it into a bookmarklet that you can copy and paste into the Safari URL line, then save as a bookmark. Make an .html file on your desktop that you will save, put in Dropbox, and open with Safari on your iPad. That .html file should have a textbox in it that you can copy here (go ...

Here's a solution that involves quite a few more mouse-clicks. If you right-click something rendered by MathJax, like $$\text{Right-Click Me!}$$ and select Math Settings > Math Renderer > Plain Source, that'll display the MathJax just as the LaTeX code which you've typed, so MathJax won't do any work. This is much faster than letting MathJax render the ...

With MathJax 2.x the way to load it dynamically has changed and the documentation says that one should use a new method. It seems to me that it ought to be possible to turn this into a Greasemonkey script that runs automatically when receiving new input.

Whether you use ChatJax or not in chat, look at the bookmarks described in this answer. The rendering off and rendering on bookmarks will turn off and on the MathJax rendering. While off, this prevents the rendering from affecting your typing.

Here is a userscript that I found in StackApps which was created partly by Antonio Vargas that enables side-by-side editing. This userscript adds a button to the editor toolbar ('Toggle Side-By-Side Editing') shown in the blue box in the image below so you can view the preview and markdown side by side when asking or answering a question or when editing an ...

This seems to have stopped working a couple of weeks ago. When I have the extension enabled, my editing window looks like this: Notice the vestigial preview area. Disabling the extension brings the situation back to normal; enabling the extension again causes the problem to recur. My browser is: Google Chrome 18.0.1025.142 (Official Build 129054) OS ...
