Re: A new FrontEnd


Point that Wolfram could improve.
1- More Undo! (1 Undo is a shame)
2- A decent debugger (don't tell me to use Workbench, I don't want to lose my 2D interface).
3- Riches graphics pallet. (Try to plot Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, PlotLabel -> "Test"], and change the label position or size..!.. it isn't friendly)
