Hi Peter,

LibreOffice has an in-line formula editor. But no one has improved it in 
the last seven years, so it is still an "experimental feature". You are 
welcome to bring it to the regular UI.

With this editor you write the formula directly into the main window and 
the markup is automatically generated in the command window.

You can enable it in Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Advanced.

Kind regards
