Texmaker auto complete settings

Postby JasonSmit » Wed Aug 22, 2018 3:16 pm


I am sorry if a similar question has already been asked, but I'm not exactly sure what to search for to find what I am trying to accomplish.

When you type in texmaker, say for instance, \begin(x) it automatically fills in \end(x), which is obviously very useful, but I would like to know if it is possible to extend this autocomplete functionality.

I would like to edit the auto complete for \include(figure) to automatically add other sections which I always add as follows

is this possible and could someone point me to a manual or even the setting file?

Thank you!

i haven't used texmaker in a long time. As far as i can remember, you can define a macro for that. Somewhere in the menu.

Not much of help, but a start.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

I use Texmaker 5.0.2 (latest version Windows 10.
When I write down the code, for instance, \begin{document} , then \end{document} will be automatically filled in. Which version of Texmaker do you use? Good luck.

After some more searching I actually did find what I was looking for on the forum at Thanks Johannes_B for the macros idea. It pointed me in the right direction
