Summary0010368: improve and integrate equations into Story Editor
DescriptionAt the current stage, equation are useless for real production work - for example book with many equations.
- Scribus is getting slower with each equation and it is impossible to work with program even in faster computers.
- Equations are not the part of the text frame, so when you change the text slightly, it is necessary to change position of each equation manually
- User interface is not so effective to insert more equation.
- Numbering is missing.
- It is impossible to import text with equations from LibreOffice.
Steps To ReproduceI propose different approach to the equations - similar to the LibreOffice one. Advantage is, that a lot of "new code" is already written (Inkscape, LibreOffice, Scribus), so that wouldn't perhaps be so difficult to code it.
Additional Informationtext_equation.sla - text frame with equation in SVG which moves along with text
