Hi,
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
Yeah, that would be a cool feature.

I have thought about something like that, first just for symbols, then later for equations...
(and at the end it could even have an export function to a CAS and that will show the solution to every written equation)
requires much time and hardware.

But that requires a lot of time and hardware (I used to have a screen-less write-only tablet, but than I lend it to my brother and he broke it immediately. Really annoying)!, so I don't think I'm going to add it within the next years...

Of course, as always, patches for it are welcome :)


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
Too weak indeed.
TeXTablet is not platform independent, and Inlarg I can't even find (only viagra ads and your forum post turn up in google)

Detexify is better, but online only. When it came out, I asked the author, if there was an offline version (planned), but it was not, and now that project seems to be dead :(

I appreciate your efforts on making a lot of symbols visible as ions in TeXstudio.

Actually there are now so many symbols, that it has become really hard to find the one
you are looking for...

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.

Best regards,
Xiaodong
