You can download the Math-o-mir v1.92 beta from here. There are not many news, but I still hope that whoever tries it will send me some feedback.

  • It is easier to type measurement units now, at least in some circumstances. After you typed a number, just hit the dot key and then continue to type the measurement unit. For example, if you type 34.4.mm the software should understand that mm is the measurement unit and will produce 34.4 mm. The good thing is that this works even for rare and/or non-standard units; the bad thing is that this works only if used the procedure after a number.
  • When you move your keyboard cursor to position just behind an existing number and you start typing some digits, these digits will be appended to the existing number (until now the multiplying dot was automatically inserted between digits you type and the existing number making it difficult to append a number with additional digits).
  • also, if you move your keyboard cursor inside some multi-letter variable and start typing, the typed letters will be inserted into the multi-letter variable (until now, the multi-letter variable was split in two parts making it difficult to correct mistyped variables).
  • Number of guidelines was increased from 8 to 12.
  • The “Headline” toolbar icon now has changed functionality. You can hit it multiple times to increase the headline size (there are three sizes, and then it cycles from beginning).
  • I added the Wh measurement unit (watt-hour) into the list of known units.
  • It is possible to create different line endings for open-path lines/curves. After you draw a line, right-click on it and select the line ending style from the popup menu. You can choose from arrow, narrow arrow, and dot ending styles. The selected line-ending style will be applied to both endings of the line/curve, except if you right-clicked the line/curve very closely (within 15 pixels) to one end (then the selected line-ending will be applied only to that end).

line_endingsThe implementation of line-endings is far from perfect (for example, line-endings will also stretch if you stretch the line), but I hope it can help. I myself often need to draw measurement lines and find it useful to have the option to quickly draw two narrow arrows on it.
