New Features for the new GUI

Extending history functions

Working with 4.5 (and having to restart it quite often), I had the following idea: Matlab has a history of commands, saved during sessions. So you can recall the last commands of the last session via "arrow up". the same feature would be nice for CoCoA's "Alt+ left arrow"...

Matlab has also an optional window, having a list/ print of this history, for copy and paste... this is quite handy, too. an optional window or print of your history would be quite useful and I think both features are not too complicated to implement and surely worth the effort.

QtCoCoA already has a command history (see CoCoA:User_Interface_Guide_Command_History_(4.4), but an additional window with previously entered commands might be a good idea (and easy to realize, too) Mabshoff 11:57, 21 Oct 2005 (CEST)
QtCoCoA has a history, that's why i was talking about extending it.
I'd like to have a history over different sessions, meaning i type $foobar, close cocoa, restart cocoa
(and probably windows, too), type "alt + enter" and there stands $foobar. up to now, this does not work
I agree that that kind of information should be preserved. I don't have to tell you that the current GUI has lots of shortcommings, i.e. you can only add bookmarks in the GUI help and not remove them (sure editing the preference files by hand - but that doesn't count). Why don't we create a page in the wiki where people can suggest features Mabshoff 23:00, 21 Oct 2005 (CEST)
I think that would be a good idea. that's more or less what I used this page for, but a dedicated article is preferable...
