Sandbox?

(1/27) > >>

Can I request a Sandbox thread or area? Often I can't get my LaTex code or SMILE right at first go and it'd be nice to have somewhere to test. I sweat trying to compete against the 30 minute modify limit.   :)

PS. The Preview feature doesn't seem to render Tex? Or maybe it's only my stupid browser?

Wondering what others think..

Borek:
Tex is not rendered in the preview and unfortunately there is not much that can be done about it - preview is fetched from the server without reloading the page, and MathJax script runs on a page load. On the other hand SMILES images are created server side, so they are displayed in the preview.

We can devote some thread to testing and delete the content now and then, no problem. I can't think of a better solution at the moment. But I am open to suggestions.

It is possible to create some simple sandbox for MathJax, but it would be not integrated with the forum itself, not the idea that I like.

That's the solution I had in mind.

Dan:
This would be useful, I also never get Tex right first time.

Just had a thought, can you PM yourself to test it?

You can PM yourself Tex to test it.
