Vim/GVim | Configuration with MiKTeX

Postby Jma » Sat Oct 01, 2011 10:01 pm


I am new to LaTeX and have installed it on a PC running Windows XP. Being a Vi user, I have also installed the Vim/GVim editors.

The install instructions from Vim for using LaTeX said to download the file latex-mik.VIM in the directory C:\Program Files\Vim\vim73\plugin which I have done.

I got it from here (

The first time I started GVim there was a menu now for executing LaTeX on the file I was editing. However I closed and restarted GVim and now there is no menu, even though latex-mik.VIM is still in the plugin directory.

Is anyone familiar with using Vim or GVim with the LaTeX plugin? Maybe there is something else I need to install or configure.

Thanks for any help!

Hello Jma,

This is a long shot since the post is old, I had the same problem on the same configuration, you probably figured it out by now that the latex menu is there only when you open a LaTeX specific file, e.g. something.tex.
