I agree 100%. In spending some time thinking about how to implement
such a thing, I came up with a few ideas. First, I was think about
having a drop down menu with various commands such as: compile, compile
ps, compile pdf (and eventually compile and view). I was wondering
about adding keybinding shortcuts to such commands as well. The toolbar
was something I was also envisioning for future development once this is
done. This would probably have a compile button (to dvi) as just a
quick access. Now the thing that I am wondering is how to go about
this. I tried scanning through some of the current plugins on cvs and
most have Glade files and are written in C. Is this the best way to add
menu items and whatnot? I am more experienced in C anyway and have
worked a little in GTK, but not a lot. If you have any more suggestions
based on this new information, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
