I was recently posting a fairly extensive answer on chemistry, that contained a lot of MathJax expressions. While typing it, my browser (Chrome) kept reinterpreting these commands, which significantly slowed down everything. I was looking for the hide preview button, but could not find it.
When I just edit a question, I am able to hide the preview. Why is there a difference between editing and answering?
While I know it is important, especially for new users, to have to scroll past the preview, and be able/forced to review the post this way, I think I do now know what I am doing most of the time and I would like to be able to toggle the preview.
Is there a way to temporarily disable the MathJax rendering?
Is there a way to disable the preview while answering (at least for more experienced users)?
I am posting this here and not in meta.chemistry, because this might be present on any other sites where Mathjax is enabled. Here is a screenshot to illustrate what I mean.
