Problem with copying and pasting formulas in Latex

After I create a formula using the Latex editor, I copy it and paste it into another multiple choice answer and slightly adjust the answer. This worked fine for a while, but now, whenever I paste, Latex generates 2 of the formula. When it happened before, I thought I was accidentally hitting CTRL-V twice. I was able to simply delete the extra formula.

Now Latex does not allow me to edit it, freezes, and kicks me back to the initial edit screen for the quiz. I lose anything not yet saved on the question and the entire quiz if I hadn't saved it yet.

Why is this happening and how can I avoid it?

First, I want to apologize for your question sitting in the community for so long without a response.

Second, it looks like you have stumped the Canvas Community.  Were you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment.
