  2. Allow users to import emacs color themes (or provide all of them)

    You offer many color schemes (with pricing) but none of them specifically suits me. I've been using variants of the classic emacs
    `slate' color theme for about 25 years. (My current favorite is `bharadwaj slate'.) Could we import emacs color themes?

  4. Download all or download all with certain tag

    Instead of having to download all files one by one, there should be a way to download all or all with certain tag(s) at once.

  5. Indent with sections

    I like to nest subsections like you would when writing a nested for loop in java or some other programming language. So if my section is indented with 2 tab spaces, I would like the text related to that section have the same level of indentation when a new line is forced in the editor.

  6. latexdiff

    Provide support for running latexdiff (http://www.ctan.org/pkg/latexdiff) between two versions of a manuscript.

    Many journals, after returning manuscripts to authors with comments from reviewers, ask for a marked up version of a manuscript showing tracked changes. I've always used latexdiff to generate these marked up PDFs.

    It would be nice if writeLatex could add support for running latexdiff between two versions of a manuscript.

  7. [Editor UI] More or customizable line height

    More air between each line in the editor improves the reading/writing experience making it more comfortable.

  9. Touch scrolling of preview pane

    Since clicking in the preview pane does nothing useful, it would be nice for people with touchscreens if dragging there scrolled the preview. (Currently it attempts to drag-and-drop the current page image.)

    Bonus points if it won't lose editor focus, so I could keep editing and scrolling editor with PgUp/PgDn independently of scrolling the preview with my finger. (Of course non-dragging click on preview must move focus there to support using PgUp/PgDn there)

  10. should enable PGF 3.0.0

    as pgf 3.0.0 is now on CTAN the added possibilities should be enabled -- perhaps on demand

  11. Auto indent using spaces even when tabbed.

    Use tab to indent a line and write some text. Press enter.
    The new line is "tabbed" but with spaces rather than a tab.

  13. Optimize for BB10

    Hi, I think you should optimize ur webpage for BB10. The webpage loads fine on my Blackberry Q10, but it changes size evrytime I delete a letter. Also if i point on my trackpad to specific point in text it doesn't recognize where i pointed. Last if i delete a character it changes size very often so it's not accelerated. Other than that the page works fine, so please improve that and writelatex will be my favourite office suite. Thank you Roydebatzen

  16. Seek to label

    While the cursor is in a \ref, hit a keyboard shortcut to automatically take the cursor to the label (in Visual Studio it is ctrl+b). This allows an easy way to jump around in the document

  17. Being able to read the log files of the current job would be very useful

    Being able to read the log files of the current job would be very useful, for example to see exactly what versions of the loaded packages are used.

    Thanks for the feedback. We are working on a better way of displaying the LaTeX log. Until then, note that we do make the log available whenever there is an error in your document, so if you ever want to access the log, you can, for example, comment out your \end{document} and then use the ‘open latex log’ link in the top right. :)

  18. Vim mode uses spaces for indentation. This should be normal tabs. (>>)

    >> does not indent using tabs in vim mode. The tab key adds tabs.

  19. keep a 'search history'

    It'd be nice if the editor would keep a history of past searches that one could access by using the up/down keys.

    Pretty much like Google Chrome remembers past searches (smart autocompletion), the unix shell keeps a history of commands, or other editors (vim) remember commands, searches, etc.

  20. Ctrl-. should display error even when line is unknown

    When there is a non-localized compile error (e.g. bibtex), the error pops up on the preview top, which is nice. But if I click elsewhere, Ctrl-. doesn't currently re-open this popup, I have to use the mouse to see it again.
