AUCTeX is an extensible package for writing and formatting TeX files in GNU Emacs and 4 See Also; 5 Project Pages; 6 Tutorial Pages. In this post, I’ll outline how to get started with emacs. There are plenty of tutorials out there, but I’d say that the best way to learn is just to jump in. This tutorial takes you through the process of creating a document in LaTeX, a powerful open source typesetting system, using GNU Emacs.

3. Quick Start

Most of my other tips and tricks have been covered by N. Roughly, work with LaTeX files can be classified as either writing or compiling. Then, since you use latexmk you can set up biblatex with bibtex and compilation with lualatex, xelatex and pdflatex via latexmk’s own configuration.

This procedure may be repeated until all errors have been dealt with. However, it auctec good to have something to start with. I would also add that Org-mode is a wonderful tool and has a lot of features outside of Auctwx integration.

If a latex run produces or changes input files for makeindexthe next suggestion will be to run that program, and AUCTeX knows that you need to run latex again afterwards—the same holds for BibTeX. You will be asked for the section level.

This document was generated by Aidan Kehoe on December 27, using texi2html 1. I also have some first steps for a general macro for finding matching or [] plus their scalers, including an interface for changing these.

AUCTeX: 3. Quick Start

You can always go back to the tutorial. Among the questions and uncertainties I should like to see addressed some of which, I accept, may not be directly on-topic — links may be more suitable in these cases are these:. It even can differentiate between mandatory and optional arguments—for details, see Completion. Key features of my modus operandi are: Longborough Apr 6 ’12 at Make sure you learn how to navigate in buffers, edit buffers, open new buffers and switch between buffers.


I was spurred on by an Emacs symposium in Copenhagen back in December, the main conclusion of the symposium was that, yes it does take some time to write your own macros, but it is worth doing in order to save time. And, of course, I love a challenge like that “as a moth to a flame”.

A particular site is EmacsWiki. Take your time and follow the tutorial from beginning to end. Also, you can set the Emacs’ file explorer dired, C-x dto omit files with extensions that you don’t want to browse.

Something you might want to learn for further efficiency of switching between files is the bookmarks feature. Yes, that is the one. Another aspect of workflow is to track changes.

AUCTeX tutoiral convenient keyboard shortcuts for inserting macros which specify the font to be used for typesetting certain parts of the text. You can see the help options by doing C-h? Generally YASnippet is a great way to make it easier to insert structures you often insert and for making templates, so it should be helpful for memoir too.

Apr 12 ’12 at When it comes to writing you should use the all the basic commands in Emacs to navigate in text and to edit text. Sometimes it is best to adapt Emacs to how you are used to work and sometimes Emacs has a better way and then you are better off adapting. When AUCTeX runs a program, it creates an output buffer in which it displays the output of the command.

For now, I am experimenting with doing local. I have one that look forward for Make sure to keep backups of your. Initial setup of emacs, including Use your old editor in parallel to begin with.


Most of what I do only search at most 5 lines forward. As usual the web is great for help. Prompted by a recent conversation in the chat room, I am thinking of revisiting emacs as my source editor. If applicable, you will be asked whether you want to save changes, and which program you want to invoke.

On the Stack Exchange network this site is good for TeX related Emacs issues but sometimes you are better off asking at Stack Overflow where more Emacs gurus are hanging out.

But there will still be a lot of things to be done by hand. You may have habits and ways of doing things that conflict with the way of Emacs. To view the output of the current buffer simply do C-c C-v. To use Flyspell do M-x flyspell-buffer to spell check the whole buffer or M-x flyspell-region to spell check the marked region.

It soon become very time saving not to have to fix these by hand. Finally, the chat might be a good place for venting your Emacs related frustration or euphoria. In the configuration below I already included such lines. These you learn tutoroal practice.

Longborough Apr 5 ’12 at Emacs has full support for futorial and it has auto-completion for most commands. It has helped me numerous times with editing long equations. You adapt it to your needs as you go.

Setup Your Emacs configuration is based in your. The important thing is that you take time to get used to Emacs and try to tutorkal new things every now and then. When searching whether I should give emacs a try, I was convinced by “You can even play tetris in Emacs M-x tetris ” on the tour page gnu.
