TexmakerX Options

Postby zosch » Sat Dec 12, 2009 11:44 am

Hi Everybody!

I think TexmakerX is a great editor for creating latex documents. I just recently replaced my TexnicCenter with it. But there a few (simple) things i wanted to switch off, but i couldn't find any way to it.

1) When I want to write many command symbols after another like this "%%%%%" I get "% % % % %". Why is the editor inserting all the spaces? I don't like it, if something happens automatically and I can't control it.

2) When I use the TAB-button (or space button in an empty line) the editor inserts a small dot "." for each pressed button/white space. How can I turn that off? It sometimes confuses me, because it looks so similar to the actual point.

3) Is there any possibility to save all my TexmakerX adjustments in the options dialog?

Does anybody have a solution for my (partly superficial) problems? - Thanks!

Doesn't happen for me. The most likely culprit is the "Special key replacement", which makes it so that when you type something, something else comes out instead, like "% " instead of "%". Go Options --> Shortcuts (on left) --> Editor (category) --> Special Key Replacement

This, I don't know (personally, I've never had a problem, because, well, I don't use tabs much; doesn't latex ignore them for the most part?), but you can make the font size bigger to help distinguish.

It's automatically saved for me no matter which folder I use TexmakerX in, so I presume the changes are in the registry. Short answer: no clue.

They have forums on sourceforge if you want to ask them.

Hei lalop,

thank you for your reply.

1) By default there is a special key replacement option for "%". I deleted it and now it works without inserting white spaces.

2) Ok, maybe I get used to it.

3) Yes that is correct. But I wondered if there is a possibility to save the changes in a file, so I can load them on a different computer...

Maybe in time I will find a solution.. :-)

Actually all options are saved in a file called texmakerx.ini.
You should be able to find it in a path called something like "C:\documents and settings\%username%\Application Data\benibela\texmakerx.ini"
