Missing math formatting in unevaluated math regions

The formatting rules in math regions are applied only after evaluation. Thus you can't use regions with just expressions or single names to be formatted correctly. This is particularly annoying if you use boolean = for inactive equations (for documentation purposes) or if you use single names for annotation of images.

Evaluating the region and deleting the result afterwards seems to solve the problem, however, the format is lost after reloading the file (browser refresh).

Another, more persistant trick, which works for undefined names only, is to symbolically evaluate them and then suppressing the input display in the context menu.

All this applies to both SMath in the cloud and build 6528 executables.

Confirmed. Thank you.

Formatting, however, doesn't start immediately when you write a new region. I starts only when you leave it

If you later edit the region, then all is formatted immediately.

This means that for new region you don't have immediate feedback if your input is taken as text or as math.

Please check it. If I remember correctly this must be already fixed.
