It would be very usefull if Formula Editor could be set in such a way that it would enable entering formulas into multiple columns. Just like in OOo Writer where you can set this in Format > Page > Columns and then when the text in the left-most column gets to the end of the page it continues in the column to the right.

The formula edito is a simple editor with basic *character* formatting. Nothing more. It's not a a word processor or DTP program. You can create 2 formulas and place them in 2 different columns *on the page*.

Hm why should it remain just a simple editor. It has so many potential. And this would just make it a lot better and easier to use.

Feature is still not implemented and it woul make the application much easier to use and more advanced.
