As far as I can see, the following are on the table:

A—Line numbers in the source file window (that the Console refers to)


C—Change Command I  from meaning Source > Font > Italic to a keyboard  
command for \emph

D— Change Command B from meaning Source > Font > Bold to a keyboard  
command for \textbf

E—A way to collapse one or more sections' text

F—A Typeset button that does NOT save at the same time

G—Let the bottom of the source window be standard, with a horizontal  
scroll bar

to which I would like to add:

H—The ability to split the output window as well as the source window  
(if possible with sync)

I—A button on the source window to open the output window (To bypass  
the menu's File > Open for Preview)

Every once in a while, someone comes up with a wish but then after a  
bit of discussion involving two or three people, the issue dies with  
no one having any idea whether it is generally desirable.

It would of course be for Koch to say, but it seems to me that   
knowing "what the people think" might be helpful to him next time he  
scratches his head, on a Sunday afternoon, wondering idly what to do  

Re. Gray's suggestion

and If it is a matter of free site, if I may, I would offer  
FreeMathTexts.org; it's the least that I can do.
