VE does not display maths equations when switching to from source editor to VE
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Story Points

Description

With the new math renderer with default as MathML (as now on mediawiki.org) equations do not appear when switching to VE from the source editor.

First edit in source mode
https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=User:Salix_alba&action=edit

then switch to Visual Editor. The mathematical equations do not appear. You can edit the equation but after editing the equation is not visible. Even after save the equations are not visible and it take a reload to make them visible.

I'm using chrome on a Mac.

That's how it looks to me clicking on edit source directly


and when switching the editors it looks like that

The problem might be that ext.math.css is not loaded thus the css

display: block; margin-left: auto !important; margin-right: auto !important;

is not included.
Adding that manually solves the problem
