Description Alexander Hunziker 2005-01-06 21:17:02 UTC
I have this vision of a set of LaTeX extension which would be very useful in gedit:

* Programmable toolbar buttons that execute latex, pdflatex or similar and then
switch to evince ( for example

* A menu full of LaTeX macros, for example a command that pastes


into your file and places the cursor at the #

* A sidebar that shows a document tree (it could get its information either by
parsing the document itself or by using the *.aux or *.toc files generated by TeX)

Have you tried to use the taglist plugin?

I'd like a nice LaTeX plugin too.

Yeah, I know the taglist plugin. It's a start :-)

While I have no Gnome programming experience, I am willing to help with this if
there's work a non-programmer can do. Feel free to contact me if you happen to
work on this :-)

We are moving all the request for plugins that we don't plan to add to gedit
itself on

Closing as WONTFIX.
Comment 7 Alexander Hunziker 2006-03-04 19:31:49 UTC
With taglist, the snippet plugin and the external tools plugin available, gedit can already be turned in quite a comfortable LaTeX editor. Syntax highlighting is also available.

The only thing that I personally would like on top of that is a tree structure showing the structure of your document, making it easier to jump to certain sections of longer documents.
