For some reason, if i put initialLatex: “S_{\infty}=” ,the input math box displays correctly, but the script checking against the numerical value in the input box marks it wrong.

initialLatex: “S_{\infty}=”

correct:correct

correct=input12b.numericValue=2000

suffix: when correct “” otherwise “”

Note that writing initialLatex: “S_n” is actually fine… so I am confused.

I’m also interested in hearing if there’s a solution for this!

After tinkering around, I think the problem extends to any subscripts that aren’t allowed in the calculator, i.e. that contain something other than numbers and letters (`S_{n-1}`

, `S_{\alpha}`

, …). If you make a Boolean like `S_{\infty} = S_{\infty}`

, even that isn’t successfully parsed and does not evaluate to true.

As a workaround, one possibility would be using `placeholderLatex`

instead of `initialLatex`

.
