Copy code from WinEdt to Word keeping the syntax coloring

Postby arstaer » Wed Feb 25, 2015 3:34 am


I was wondering if it were possible to copy the latex code from WinEdt to Word or anywhere with the syntax coloring intact? Say, \section light blue in WinEdt and same color in the copied text in Word. That's for revisions with non-latex using coauthors, which number plenty in my field.

If not WinEdt, then any other editor?

Thank you in advance,

I don't think this is possible on the OS side. You are copying/pasting text, nothing will be known about any color. Sorry.

Why do you want to copy to word in the first place? You can open a tex-file with any text editor. If you don't want a LaTeX specific editor, you can use Notepad++ which does a nice job on Windows.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
