    I think I requested this several times before, but could we have the same editing tools as appear in text modules. I.e. text formatting and symbols at least?

    ....however if Iony is a real person and not a monkey or AI bot spewing random words, I apologise for my insensitivity.

      Maybe a non-English speaker with a bad translation application?

        I was thinking the same thing. Automatic translations never get it right.

          Google translate is pretty good and I've tested it in 3 major languages and 2 lesser known ones. Never was it this bad lol. The lower case upper case stuff is hilarious.

      You mean when I posted the request before?

    Could we at least have subscripts and superscripts? I can't properly answer questions which need the inclusion of equations without these.

      a^2 and a_2 are recognised.

        I use the character map for square and cube superscripts because symbols for these are part of the ASCII set (or maybe unicode?). ^ is a workaround, but just doesn't really look as good as a proper superscript..

          I think it's unicode, not too sure though. Yeah, it's a workaround that I was pointing. It not only doesn't look great, but it's also a lot more difficult to type.

            Just checked. "Squared" is extended ASCII decimal 178 and "cubed" is the next character.
