Thanks to all contributors to Joplin for the great note-taking app!
I’ve noticed that there are many feature requests for wysiwyg editor in joplin.
I understand that that is not an easy feature to implement.
Having used latex a lot, I see that joplin shares the same challenge: source code is usually far smaller than the rendered content. As such, keeping things synch vertically is impossible (without adding extra white space to the generated content).
To solve this, I propose that the same solution that works for latex is adopted: synctex.
The explanation of this technique is here: https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/118489/what-exactly-is-synctex
Maybe this is easy to implement and would satisfy most of the wysiwyg editor requests.
- User writes down some text with lots of pictures
- Vertical synchronzation gets messed up, making it harder to find your way in large documents.
- If user ctrl+clicks in text in the preview pane, the corresponding text gets highlighted in the source pane, and vice-versa.
