# Triple backslashes in my LaTeX?

What the heck? For some reason, every time I use LaTeX, it works fine, and then I click "Edit", and it generates all these wacky symbols, like triple slashes, double brackets, etc. It's permanent, too! It doesn't revert back, and it weirdly spaces every command. Arg!! Somebody please help me!

Thank you. I had only tried \ [ ... \ ], not \ ( ... ). · 2 years, 10 months ago

How do you use LaTeX? $\LaTeX$ · 2 years, 10 months ago

Update: You can now view Latex codes by hovering over the equation. Read Seeing actual $$\LaTeX$$ for more details! Staff · 2 years, 1 month ago
