From some days on, I cannot see the preview of my edits while doing them on the main site. Since I have enough reputation, they should show.

For example, if I click in the 'edit' button on this answer all I see is this:

While this is what I see on other Stack Exchange sites where I have the edit questions and answers privilege:

It is fun how this does work fine here, in Meta:

The other day I faced exactly the same problem you are facing here: I totally missed a text link. I was looking for an edit button in a special page only moderators can edit, and I had to look for that button three times until I found it.

You just need to notice the text link saying "show preview" just under the edition window, click there and you'll see the preview. The funny thing is that here in Meta that text link does not show up, and I can't remember having seen that text link before, so I guess it is easily missable (does that word exist?). And another thing, you are not the only one. It seems also that the preview setting is stored per site, which explains why you can see the preview in other sites but not here. As Glorfindel said in the MSE question, maybe you clicked in that link by accident.

    Yes, missable certainly exists. In fact the cliche eminently missable is a useful one.
