I released the v1.62 and you can download it from the homepage.  This version is nicknamed “the velociraptor” because it is the fastest blackboard-to-computer math writing tool in the world. (Lucky me.)

Keyboard handling news:

  • You can now use ALT+Space (or SHIFT+Space) to toggle  between math-typing and text-typing mode. This way you can easily mix math and a plain text while you are typing your artwork.
  • Toolbox accelerator table is expanded with new shortcuts. It also shows already-used shortcuts now.
  • The comma character can be used as a decimal separator now. To make this possible, check the following option “Options->Keyboard->Allow comma as a decimal separator”.
  • You can quickly save your document by using CTRL+S keystroke (As a result, the single-shot formatting is renamed to one-shot formatting and is activated by the  CTRL+O keystroke)
  • You can now add a ‘hat’ over a variable you just entered by using the double ‘^’ stroke. You can add an arrow by using ALT+comma… (strange, isn’t it?)
  • You can use following keystrokes \{, \[, \(, \|, \}, \], \) to insert a single bracket only.
  • Triple (!!!) ALT+right keystroke inserts the |-> operator. Further, using the ‘=>’ keystroke you can insert double right arrow. Using ‘***’ keystroke you can enter center-dots.
  • The \ep command is implemented as a short form for the \epsilon command. The \mid command is also implemented.
  • When working with keyboard selections you can use following keystrokes now: b (bold), i (italic), u (underline), o (overline), s (strikeout), r (red), g (green), n (formatting normalization)
  • Following parentheses-generating keystrokes are enabled: ‘<>’ , ‘[)’, ‘(]’, ‘||’
  • You can add + or – sign to the exponent by using ALT+plus and ALT+minus keystrokes.

Other news:

  • analysis button for function plotting – shows local minimum, maximum and intersection points
  • New functions can be plotted now: sec, cosec, arcsin, arccos, arctan, arccot, sh, ch, th, cth
  • You can point at the moving dot now to select the whole object
  • You can copy equation images to other applications by using standard Copy/Paste menu options
  • New operators are added:   :=, =:, :<=>, #, |->
  • The F2 key (zoom in) will now follow your mouse pointer if mouse was moved in less than one second prior to the F2 usage.
  • The mouse wheel will scroll the window when mouse pointer hovers over vertical scroll bar
  • I addition, you can now dedicate mouse wheel to window scrolling – in this case you must use CTRL+wheel for zoom in/out. To make this option active check the  “View->Zoom->Use CTRL for wheel zoom” menu option.
  • “Wide keyboard cursor” option makes your blinking cursor fat so you can see it better. Use “Options->Selections->Wide keyboard cursor”
  • Automatic vertical guidelines – when your mouse pointer is nearly aligned with the left side of an equation, a thin green lines will appear. To toggle the guidelines on/off use the F12 key.
  • There is a new HTML help file.
