Quiz Statistics Not Showing Equations

When we are viewing the Quiz Statistics of a Maths Quiz the Equations which are written in LaTex are not showing in the solutions box. We simply get a message in the box "No answer text provided" instead of the solution we added.

Could this be fixed so that the Quiz Statistics page also parses LaTex (equation code) in the same way the quiz itself does?

Below is an example of the statistics page:

Hey gharbor,

It sounds like you've run across something you think may not be functioning correctly. I don't have personal experience with this situation but I would recommend going ahead and filing a support ticket for this issue. If it is something misbehaving, the support agent will be able to document the issue and pass it along the appropriate channels most effectively. It looks like you've been here a while, but I'll leave this guide here just for good measure.How do I get help with Canvas as an instructor?

Beyond that, I will leave this question open so others can share their experience and any other thoughts they have about this issue. Let us know if you're able to find anything else out from support.

I have this issue as well, so there at least doesn't seem to be a fix that was general to Canvas. My mathematics terms don't show up in the statistics page at all, let alone with "No answer text provided.". Has there been any progress on this front? Here's an example:

I am having the same problem with a simple bold text answer, which happens to be a snippet of JavaScript code.

I also had this with another question in the same test, which was NOT Javascript code, but DID include some bold text, e.g. 

293428_quiz - answer snippet - bold text.PNG

However, removing the bold text from the answers does not make them appear in the quiz statistics.  Similarly, I have a question with JavaScript snippets in the answers which DO get displayed in the quiz stats.

Any thoughts / help would be appreciated.
