Dear TeXstudio developers,
I am so grateful for all your efforts to perfect the TeXstudio editor that I
would like to post my request on improving this editor. As you may have
noticed that more and more computer users switched to Tablets, or
penable/touchable devices to complete their daily lives for researching,
notes-taking, writing and studying. For example, I personally use ThinkPad X61
Tablet to finish all my academic computer-based activities. I can use stylus
to take notes and draw sketches freely while taking lectures or preparing
houdouts. If our developers are looking at a promising future, I think a
friendly LaTeX interface for tablet users is a good idea for the next
improvement beyond traditional LaTeX editors.
I notice that some efforts have been started in some small groups. Software or
apps like Inlarg and TeXTablet have been developed to adapt to the handwriting
and freehand drawing era. But the current software are either commercial or
too weak to be propagated to the large LaTeX user community. I sincerely wish
TeXstudio developer groups can consider to develop similar or better tools
integrated in the TeXstudio framework, so that the users can draw graphs and
hand-written equations, and insert them conveniently without moving to another
software. Notice that, this improvement can also benefit the general LaTeX
users in many ways.
I appreciate your efforts on making a lot of symbols visible as ions in
TeXstudio. I think your goal is to make the software easy to be used in
various ways and for various groups of users. Since there have already been
some codes can be borrowed in the open source community, I think it is not too
hard to develop those features. I hope my proposal is in the same direction as
the TeXstudio community is struggling in, and feasible for the next feature to
be added into the software.
