The major new feature is an entirely new UI that is inspired by the PowerPoint model of having a list of thumbnail views on the left, and then an active plot/slide that is shown in big.
Plus, you can easily copy any plot from the plot gallery to the clipboard, which makes for a nice workflow if you want to paste figures into some other program.
All the work for this was done by the awesome @TonyLianLong, who is a UC Berkeley undergraduate who is working on various Julia related stuff as part of a research assistant gig. And more is coming, he has a PR ready that integrates all of this into the Julia VS Code extension!
I just tried it and it seems quite useful. A few questions
How does the copy-paste functionality work? I tried copying a plot and pasting into libre office but it only pasted a whitespace
I seem to loose interactivity in the plots if I use ElectronDisplay, in the sense that I can no longer zoom into plots etc. with Plots.jl backends that support such things. Is there a way to enable this?
Every time i click on the inteface, a bunch of text is printed in the terminal, is this deliberate? [4069:0206/155146.687870:ERROR:buffer_manager.cc(488)] [.DisplayCompositor]GL ERROR :GL_INVALID_OPERATION : glBufferData: <- error from previous GL command
The shortcuts mentioned for zooming does not work on my machine.
