[TeXmacs] When to expect the next release?

Hi developers,

I am writing a book using TeXmacs. I have stopped writing for a while, because of TeXmacs 1.99.2 bugs (which
I've reported) with synchronizing windows (particularly synchronizing modified state between
several windows displaying the same document and synchronizing Undo/Redo status between windows
displaying the same document).

When to expect the next release?

By the way, I suggest you to make a TeXmacs blog. Even if you will write seldom, a tiny blog is better than nothing.

Weird, I can't find my bugs at https://savannah.gnu.org/my/items.php - where have they gone?

[TeXmacs] Texmacs + Win7 x64 + Aspell +Spanish

Hi guys,

Im a novice user of TexMacs and so far Im loving it. Anyways here is my 
issue:

-I Installed Aspell for ortography correction. It didnt worked at first 
but I realized that textmacs was looking for aspell into "c:/Programs 
Files" and it was installed on "c:/Program Files x86/" Since Im working 
on Win7 64bits. So I just copied the folder.

-Aspell started to working well on Texmacs :).

My issue now is that aspell on texmacs is only working for english but 
my native language is Spanish. My document and software is on Spanish 
and I obv downloaded the setup file of Aspell for Spanish and I dont 
know how to say to texmacs/aspell to use Spanish other than indicate 
texmacs that my document is on spanish.

So when I request Texmacs to do some ortography on my document it 
suggest to change words like "Universidad" to "University" haha.

Can I have a solution for this?
Who can I report that minor bug with Aspell/Texmacs on Win7 64bits ?

Regards.

[TeXmacs] Writing a seminar paper in philosophy with Texmacs

Hi,
I've been using Texmacs sucessfully for about 1.5 years for my Computer Science exercises at University.
Now i have to write a seminar paper in philosophy and want to do this with GNU Texmacs, since i like it.

The style requirements are quite different, since this branch of the University is a quite Microsoft Word polluted place.
There also exist no LaTeX Templates i could give you for comparison, just a tutorial how to set the style sheets in Word.
I want to ask you:

  * Are the following requirements are fullfilable using Texmacs.

  *  Are there exist styles which are like these or will i have to write some by myself.
     If i have to, how difficult is this? I've looked on the official documentation, the style sheet language seems turing complete.

  == The requirements ==

1. A own title package, with the following formatting: http://www.philso.uni-augsburg.de/de/institute/philosophie/studium/skriptum-ewa-philosophie/3_seminararbeit-form/
   (at 34% of the page, in "Beispiel 2")

2. Interline seperation of 1.5 Z
    (I found a corresponding Option in Document->Paragraph->Spacing, but how does this behave to microsoft word "notation".
     It's default is 0.025fns, so does .0375fns  correspond to 1.5 Z in Word ? )

3. Citations in another Text size than the rest of the Text.

4. A Table of Contents and a bibliography

The only point I'm really worried about is the own Title page with all the non standard fields, the rest seems solvable.

== A question out of personal interest ==
I've read a lot about the Texmacs environment variables is there a way to set them from within a running Texmacs for a certain
environment ?

Cheers and Thanks,
Georg

[TeXmacs] Bad behavior when you like close a document

Other again: I was prefer open other discussion line for this problem.

How fix the bad behavior when I like to close a document and it say:
"the buffer has not been saved. Close it really?"  I answer: YES, yes, 
Yes, Si, Sí, si and nothing happens.  Same happens when you modify a 
help document, you never can't  to close.

Exist some trick like before question 
(https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?41606#discussion) or is it an 
programming bug (I see in some place that texmacs was remaked)

Always I've to kill the process to close or to remain with those 
documents open, thing not attractive from memory recurses view.

Cordially,

luis jaime

Re: [TeXmacs] python plugin

Hi,

i compiled a fresh downloaded svn version a few minutes ago and ... python doesn't work anymore within texmacs. I am under ubuntu 13.10.

Did anyone make the same mistake and knows how to get the python plugin back to work ?

Thx.

Hi,

1. The code isn’t actually indented in the first snippet, it’s in fact a problem with the <\python> tag you are using. For code snippets you should use <\python-code>.

2. To have indentation, set the preference "editor:verbatim:tabstop" inside a scheme session:

 (set-preference "editor:verbatim:tabstop" 4)

I just committed a fix for this which sets the default value, thanks.

3. Now you can use c-tab, c-s-tab to indent/unindent. Automatic indentation after a colon should also work, if you have a fairly recent version of TeXmacs (around svn rev 8700)

Best,

Re: [TeXmacs] TexMacs crashes while starting up (Mac os x)

Hi, sorry for the very *very* late reply.

I'm sure you already solved your problem either by using some other version (hopefully a newer one), but here's a wild guess: it looks like you have at least one font with japanese characters in the file name. This is from your .TeXmacs/system/cache/font_cache.scm":

"ttf:ヒラギノ明朝 ProN W6" "/System/Library/Fonts/ヒラギノ明朝 ProN W6.otf"

Please try deleting or renaming this file, then deleting the .TeXmacs/system/cache folder and starting TeXmacs.

Best

Re: [TeXmacs] show embedded

I'm not sure what it is that this window displays, but if it's some sort of dynamic content (i.e. you may manipulate the 3D representation), then it won't happen any time soon. The current infrastructure is just not designed to do such a thing... :(

For testing purpose, I think you should add it in the "initial" section
of .tm files. This could gives:

<TeXmacs|1.99.1>

<style|article>

<\body>
  Test RCS.
</body>

<\initial>
  <\collection>
    <associate|rcs-id|$Id$>
    <associate|rcs-src|$Sources$>
  </collection>
</initial>

By the way, you will have no guarantee that your Id string is conserved
as-is. Linefeeds and other stuff can occurs. Also, the Id string should
not deface the TeXmacs document. To ensure this, verify that the
brackets < > are properly escaped via \<less\> and \<gtr\>.

François
