Tooltips show a preview of the code position.

Link overlays

  • Assistants for images, tables, formulas, ...

Generate blocks of code using assistants without the need for detailed LaTeX knowledge.


  • Drag & drop support for images

When you drag an image on the editor the image assistant opens. From there it's just one more click to have the code for the image inclusion. Of course, we try to make the paths relative. This also works with multiple images.
