LibreOffice is sub-optimal for an heavy use of math equations.
There is a lot to learn from the Lyx word processor on this aspect and several features could be copied:
- quick entry in math mode with the CTRL-M and CTRL-shift-M commands
- no visible source code for the equation. The source code is displayed inside the equation until the command is completed.
- direct interaction with the formula using the mouse or the arrow keys with a cursor which is displayed
- quick way out of math mode using the space key
Implementing these features would bring an important added value to LibreOffice for scientists.
Thank you very much for this enhancement request.
