You can download the 1.82 beta from: http://www.datafilehost.com/d/52de0c17

In this version, plain text is handled in a different manner. If you point your mouse pointer over a plain-text word, the word will not get highlighted (touched) any more, but the green insertion point will appear. You can therefore click to start editing plain text even in the middle of a word (in fact, to edit a letter or two, you don’t even need to start the keyboard-entry mode as you can use the quick-type feature for this)… Now, please, let me know if this is a step forward or not.

Other news are:

  • Mouse multi-touch… You can now point your mouse at an equation element, and then click-and-drag to highlight (touch) several elements. Therefore, if you use this method, you don’t need to hold down the Shift key to multi-touch.
  • After you finish the multi-touch procedure, you can move the mouse for several pixels without getting the selection untouched again. This gives you opportunity to make some additional actions with highlighted (touched) elements: Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C, right-click to open context menu
  • When you do multi-touch selection (or keyboard selection using Shift+arrow_key) the selected (touched) objects are shown with some background blue color. It is easier to see what objects are selected.
  • Words longer than 23 letters are now possible to type (still, this feature needs to be refined)
  • I decreased the size of the Moving Dot, and moved it few pixel down so that it doesn’t block the view to an object.
  • The ‘label’ element is now available from the toolbox. You can also create it by casting the \label command. In the label element you can type a label (a text) that you can reference later from the link element.
  • The \link command is implemented to insert the link element.
  • The link element can now point to local labels and headlines (btw, you create a headline using \h1, \h2 or \h3 command). Right-click at the link element to choose from all available local labels and headlines.
  • The link element will now work even if you didn’t define the hyperlink command – if no command is defined, the software will use the description text of the link element as a command. Therefore, you can make the link element with description “http://google.com” and it will work without defining its hyperlink command.
  • Constants ‘e’ and ‘pi’ can now be used in functions used for plotting. Until now, the function plotter did not plot well functions that contained ‘e’ and ‘pi’ constants.

Well, It is up to you now. What is you like? What is you hate?
