Your regex cheatsheet says ^ is "Start of string" and $ is "End of string"

Hi. I made a cheat sheet for electronics (attenuator design).
It's a bit math-y but I got formulas to look the way I wanted in MS Word, then printed to a PDF.

Is there a way to just import a PDF wholesale, into a new cheat sheet?

Hi, thanks for this amazing tool! One thing I was having trouble with, though: When editing a column, every time I made an edit [or even cursored through some text [in a textbox]], the Preview would update -- and on my machine [Firefox 35.0.1 on Win 7 64bit AMD Athlon X2 5600+] that meant frequent, recurring, 5 to 8 second freezes--very excruciating! I hoped that hiding the Preview would end this grief, but not the case -- as if the Preview were being re-calculated even so!

Some suggestions [in case I'm not the only one struggling with this]:
* If it's not possible to recode this for greater efficiency, then perhaps disable the Preview refresh when the Preview is hidden.
* Refresh the preview less frequently:
- Every few seconds.
- After a few seconds of non-activity.
- Only when a 'Refresh Preview' button is pressed [include a keyboard short-cut].
* I wonder if this is so slow, for me, because I'm not only across the Channel, but on the "Eastern side of the East Pond" ;) Perhaps, if the Preview is being updated on the backend [i.e. from a server-side DB], then consider doing the preview with JavaScript, instead.
