Propose a solution

The 1st meeting was productive, and we agreed on a solution.

(complete describing the solution)


Draft. Please complete or correct typos, add suggestions ... etc


  • Initial meeting
  • Choose a solution
  • Discover starmath code organisation
  • Identify all Arrange cases
  • start debugging : find interesting breakpoints

Work in progress

  • understand the 27 Arrange methods, more precisely, describe what is done in every case
  • imagine scenarios for debugging
  • trace and analyze positional parameters ( work in progress )

Remaining tasks

  • identify the problem precisely for text only ( including greek letters or not)
  • propose a solution for text only
  • identify the problem for a over b
  • propose a solution for a over b
  • factorize the solution
  • prepare a new meeting
  • define the change in .odt file format
  • implement it
  • write the specs
