Wishlist B. Editing equations1 Recommended Answer
I can’t very well suffer having to use point-and-click to switch to subscript or superscript mode in equations. In ordinary text we have Ctrl+, and Ctrl+., but these are not available inside an equation. I suppose that the internal structure of a Doc equation requires that a subscript or superscript always be attached to some element, as indicated by the x in the “x_a” point-and-click function. Still, I recommend to think of something better than point-and-click. Maybe introduce some control character that starts an element.
I would like to see the TeX/LaTeX mode for mathematical symbols in equations extended to many more, if not all, symbols that have a TeX code. First examples for me personally: sqcup, sqcap, sqsubset, sqsubseteq, sqsuperset, sqsuperseteq.
I believe that the design of the equation editor is inhibited by a requirement that multiple people should be able to edit the same equation at the same time. Does Google really care to accommodate this supposed need? If it frees up some design choices then I think it would be better to make an equation an indivisible unit for the purpose of shared editing.
To add a comment, once you have created an equation, it is clumsy to edit it. To take one example, from the drop down list, insert a pair of square brackets. Now put something between the square brackets. Now how do you delete the square brackets without deleting the content in the middle? I can't see how to do it. All I can do is copy the content in the middle, delete the whole thing, and then paste to retrieve the content in the middle.
