physics_teacher Posted May 5, 2020 Author Share Posted May 5, 2020 (edited) Original thread: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/1309-plug-in-model-for-tools/ Hi, I just would like to update this post some. I teach physics for highschool, and since the covid19 lockdown I have been using paint.net extensively to create on-the-fly diagrams and schematics while giving virtual lessons, with a simple screen sharing app. I use paint.net because it's simple and free, and I can then post our work together easily later on my website. My students reported that I do so with such skill and speed that they decided to install paint.net themselves to create stuff like I do. I find myself wishing we could add a math plugin that's easy to use in real time for the virtual lessons to be more comfortable. For instance, adding a latex converter field in the toolbar would be a major plus. It would save me about a third of the time devoted to our lessons. I've looked at the Dr Scott's Markup Renderer plugin, but it's just too slow if I have to implement 3 steps to get what I need each time. So, I am allocating some time to create my own plugin to render on-the-fly latex in my diagrams. I think adding a tool to do just that could be beneficial for math and physics teachers alike. Hope my argument makes a point. Cheers, Edited May 5, 2020 by BoltBait Split from original thread Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
