While I'm studying Math, Physics or any other topics which uses a lot of formulas, I'm taking notes using Anki which supports MathJax formating. Since I'd like my notes to be properly formated, I want to copy the MathJax-code. As it currently stands, I have to try and figure out how it is formated and then rewrite it.

I have searched for ways to render Stack Exchange without formating applied, but all for vain.

My question: is there some way to copy raw Math-Jax from a post?

You can either

  1. click the "edit" link on the post (alternatively, the URL takes the form of https://[site].stackexchange.com/posts/[postID]/edit), or

  2. right click on the rendered MathJax, choose "Show Math As" and then "TeX commands", or

  3. view the "source" of a certain revision (easier for questions that have been edited at least once, since a "revisions" link will already be readily available). The link takes the form of https://site.stackexchange.com/revisions/[somerandomcharacters]/view-source. For example, this answer's revision 6 source.
