MathSpad Editor

The editing tool MathSpad has been developed to facilitate writing mathematically oriented documents. At first, the main goal was to create an interface for editing structured expressions combined with plain text. The editor was built so as not to restrict the user to any mathematical convention, notation or symbol set, since the initial target group often created new notations and symbols. The principle design element introduced in order to realise this requirement was the notion of a stencil consisting of a number of templates. The flexibility built into the original design has meant that the system is also useful for the creation of structured texts other than mathematical texts, such as HTML documents, these applications not having been envisaged when work on the project began.
