Certain LaTex formulas don't render when placed within a callout box

Steps to reproduce

paste a working LaTex formula into a callout box and the source text will become red, it may be related to \left( and \right).

$(\sum\limits_{i=1}^n x+1)$ => $\left( \sum\limits_{i=1}^n x+1 \right)$

*The left formula displays properly, but not the right one

Expected result

Both formulas in the example will display even when placed in a callout box

Actual result

The right formula in the callout box displayed as if there was an error in the formula

Additional information

Appears to work for me both with default theme and Ebuiliantworks and both preview and reading on iOS FWIW.

The formula when I copied from the forum, and the formula when I copied straight from my document placed in a sandbox vault of course.

This is what the source mode looks like, the slash between = and > doesn’t make a difference

you have a weird char in your formula. nbsp = non breaking white space.
