Cosmetic Fix - Please reduce Mathjax margins in Canvas Note

Steps to reproduce

Add a note and insert a formula:
This is the LaTeX which produces the screenshot:
$$\vec{u} = \sum_i^n u^i{\bf{e}}_i = u^i{\bf{e}}_i$$

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? Y

Expected result

A compact result for the formula is much nicer:

Actual result

This is what you see, I’ve resized the note to fit the formula.
Notice all of the redundant whitespace above the formula.

Additional information

It seems that It can be fixed by setting the margin in the mjx-container element, to 0em 0

If there is a configuration setting, config file or something else I could use to configure this setting it would be appreciated, (rather than hacking the code).

Here is the solution if anyone stumbles over this ticket and this is not fixed in the Default app:

Add the following snippet to your CSS Snippets:

mjx-container[class="MathJax"][jax="CHTML"][display="true"] {
  margin: 0em 0;

We are not gonna do this as that padding is appropriate when text is present before and after.
