Problem description:

Hi there,
I think would be great to have the possibility to add the most frequently used formulas in the “Examples” section (or even better, in a new section, e.g.: “Personal Formulas”) in the new Elements Docking window introduced in LO 4.1, so to have the possibility to re-enter them with just a click.
Thanks a lot, and keep up the good work!

Current behavior:
Formulas in the "Examples" sections cannot be edited

Expected behavior:
One should be able to add and/or edit formulas in a personal section of the Elements docking windows, so to be able to re-enter them with just one click
Operating System: All
Version: release

I am confirming this report. Setting severity to Enhancement and Status to NEW. The screenshot in comment #1 shows the current list of five examples. If I understand the request correctly, the suggestion is that some sort of facility be included that remembers / saves recently included or preferred equations and populates a list of them for easier access. 

Whether this is done via the existing "Examples" section of the Elements panel or a new section (e.g., "Recent" or "Personal") is open to opinion. I agree with the original reporter that a separate section is better, as the examples are not really a list of preferred / personal / favourite / recent equations.

How equations are included on this new list also needs to be considered. Until this is resolved the status may need to be set to NEEDINFO rather than NEW. The feature could be entirely automatic (as with the Recent Files list), although this is more a list of recently edited equations and IMO less in keeping with what the reporter is suggesting. Alternatively it could be an optionally populated list, especially if the list is to be more "personal" (i.e., favourites) rather than "recent". In this case some sort of check-box or similar option would be required to allow selective inclusion.

A "simple" (!) drag and drop function would also be great to add formulas to the "Personal" section
