Dear Nuno,

Your ideas would be very useful. Hopefully the one considering to implement 
this (maybe you) take a look at other really useful ideas (I mean all the 
green wishlist items in

I'm not a programmer, "only" a teacher for physics using step to teach 
mechanics. But if I may help somehow implementing some new ideas let me know.

Thanks for your ideas and all efforts
Kindest regards
