Gilles Castel has posted the promised follow-up to his initial live note-taking in LaTeX workflow post. In this newest post, he explains how he draws mathematical figures in Inkscape, an open-source vector graphics application, live during lectures.

Gilles has done some very interesting automation work on Linux to support this workflow. One of the reasons I use macOS is the ability to do complex automation with things like AppleScript and and Keyboard Maestro. It is hearting to know that similar types of customization are possible on other platforms, though I suspect Gilles has invested a significant amount of time into building support for his complex—and powerful—note-taking workflow.
