### Missing autocompletition for \paragraph

\paragraph{} doesn't autocomplete.
Can it be added?

Thanks

You can actually add your own commands for autocomplete; I've done this a lot as I've defined new macros I use all the time.

In your TXC installation folder there should be a subfolder "Packages", which contains some files like "base.xml", "math.xml", and "TeX.xml". You can add autocomplete commands to any of these, or better yet, make a new file: "mycommands.xml". Take a look at one of the existing files to get an idea of the format.

You can add the following to any one of these files to get \paragraph completion:
1. <lxCommand name="\paragraph"
2. parameters="1"
3. />

Just add it somewhere between existing commands, save the file and restart TXC and it should work.

I attached my list of auto-complete commands that I've added, as well. (Warning: some of these are not standard commands, so unless you have defined them in a LaTeX file they won't be of any use.)

Thanks!
It works, but now every time TeXnicCenter 2.0 alpha3 starts it popup a message saying:
"In order to use this function the following software must be properly installed on your system
Microsoft XML parser"

I have installed MSXML 4.0 SP3 on my system and if I dismiss the message, then everything works.

Mysterious.

Thanks again

I have downloaded the file mycommands.xml , the storage directory is : C:\Program Files\TeXnicCenter\Packages.

I understand that, this XML file contains gather and align, align* etc.

Question : How do I import these into TXC ( 2.0 BETA, 64-bit). I tried typing "gather" but nothing was hinted.

Advise...
