LaTeX larger vertical bars do not render in editor or preview

Steps to reproduce

While using inline or block math code, use the \biggr, \big, \Biggr, or any of those variations with a vertical line | (or \rvert, \lvert, or \left| and \right|)

Expected result

The vertical line should render, bigger as indicated by the command.

Actual result

In live preview mode, and preview mode, the vertical bar does not render if any resizing commands are used prior (the ones listed above)

Additional information

It does render if you generate a PDF from the page. Subscripts or superscripts that are attached to the vertical line do move accordingly in live/preview mode, indicating that the command works, the line is just simply invisible.

Code example: (Happens with both single $ and double $)
$\text{This is an example substitution } \frac{\partial{f}}{\partial{x}} = \big\lvert_{x=1} =$

Yeah, changing the zoom does resolve the issue. Thanks
