Re: [isabelle] Easier quick PDF generation possible?

I could even imagine a button in Isabelle/JEdit to generate the
document and place it in the Document tab on the right.

And, isabelle build seems to be slow, does it use the information from
the continuous proof checking? I guess not. If it were part of
Isabelle/JEdit, it would be much different.
