Agreed; this has been discussed several times, I think there is a ticket opened on it.
I think we should:
- divide the symbols into categories
- avoid re-rendering the preview (very slow for hundreds of symbols), possibly caching it
- add a plugin, similar to the plugin installer, to download (better also upload)
sets of symbols from a common repo.
It should not be a lot of work, any taker? Any sponsor?
All the best.
