### compiling of files, if are open two ...

Hi!,
if i open in WinWdt 8 successively two tex files, for example file1.tex and after it a file2.tex, and copy one paragraph from file1.tex to file2.tex and try compile file2.tex. But the WinEdt compile the first one (file1.tex) and not the second one (file2.tex). what is more confusing to me, if close bot files and open both on opposite order, i.e. file2.tex and then file1.tex, and try to compile file2.tex, WinEdt persist to compile only file1.tex ...

both files are in different maps (in the same directory), if this has some matter. please, help me, always to close all files and are related with just this copy made in the beginning of my problems. if i open more .tex files,  all stored in the same map, they doesn't interfere with compilation of file1, regardless where it is in all open files.

always to close the file, from which i copired something to another, is quit annoying (I often do this, develop some code for listings or pictures in separate file and then  -- copied them to other (main) file ...

I'm calling context through a bat-file (which sets some environment
variables). The context command in this bat file is:

context.exe  %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

I now wanted to force all executables to create an unzipped
synctex-file as sumatra seems not to be able to handle .gz-files.

But it didn't work for context. And the console output shows that
the reason is that the equal sign is missing in the command line
call:

G:\Z-Test>context.exe  --synctex -1 "test-utf8.tex"

What can I do to get it back?

I can naturally use

context.exe  %1=%2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

as command line. But I do find this a bit fishy as it would break if
I disable synctex.

Hi All,

I just started to experiment the great new folding feature provided by WinEdt 8.

Since I often have large portions of commented text in my files, I would be interested to fold such commented
out portions. I have not been able to implement it so far and would therefore appreciate any hint.

I would like to fold starting

- either from a line whose first non space or tab character is a "%",
- or from the line after a "%" when the "%" is preceded by other non space or tab characters (except indeed "\%"),

and fold until the line which precedes

- the first line whose first non space or tab character is NOT "%"

Example: I would like to fold from line 2 to 5 in the example below:

1. this is regular text % and this is comment
2. % comment continuation
3.
4. % more comment
5.
6.   Again regular text

### feature in winedt: label search

Dear Winedt developers,

I always used winedt to write papers and books since I installed it. One
thing I always noticed is that the search window that shows up when
using, for instance, \ref does not allow a search using any word, as far
as I could judge. This is not important for articles or reports because
they are in general not so big. But for a book with dozens of sections
and subsections and hundreds of equations this is not very convenient. I
believe that it is a minor improvement that is not so difficult to
implement. Can you put it in your todo list (or tell me whether I
misused the search window)?

Best regards,
J. Seixas

### Problem with string variables / perhaps a bug

I managed to let this macro fail:

Assign("Local", "test");
Prompt('Local=%$("Local")'); Everytime I did run it (in a .edt file on its own) the second line is marked red and I got a warning dialog Error parsing a string parameter ... Prompt('Local=%$("Local")'^^^);

After some tests I found out that this line in my real edt is the
source of the problem:

IfFileExists("%!3",|Open("%!3")|,"Prompt('%\$(|kpsefilename|)');");

For a reason that I don't understand a ; is needed inside the Prompt
command and so if the file doesn't exist and the false-clause is

And from then on *every* "Prompt" with a string variable lead to the
error parsing warning until I closed and reopened winedt.

### Using Ctrl+Mouse Wheel to zoom in/zoom out

Dear WinEdt developers/users:

Is there anyway (even by creating my own macro) to use Ctrl+Mouse Wheel to zoom in/zoom out, just like in Firefox, Notepad++ or many PDF readers? It is important for me.

Best,

### Problem with Smartquote2

Hello,

I have the following problem with Smartquote2 under Winedt:

For years I used WinEdt and  Smartquote(2) from R.Schlicht in it.
Everytime it
works, but one of the last Winedt updates make a change: Smartquote2
works, but
only with the >> and << (ASCII-Characters), not with the direct input of
» and «, what is possible to adjust in smartquote2.edt. Now there only
comes � � . I can insert the right signs with the chracter map, what
means that the font I'm using contains the characters - but I wonder why
it do not work like the last years ...

Could anyone help?

### Feature request (?)

I am not sure if this is a feature request or is something that can already be done with Winedt 7. Limited versions of this feature are available in Texmaker and Texstudio and variations of it are available in Texworks and Texshop.

Feature: When I start entering the first few letters of a command a small window opens offering all matching commands. When I select one of the commands in that window, Winedt enters the content of an editable file and puts the cursor at the right place. For instance when I start typing \begin{e  a window opens offering \begin{enumerate}, , .... and when I select \begin{enumerate} it enters:

\begin{enumerate}
\item *
\end{enumerate}

and it puts the cursor at *. The point is that the content is preferably editable, so if another use prefers the same command to enter three \item's and put the cursor at the * location on the first item, he can edit a file to do so, or even better make it such that another window pops out and asks "how many items?"

In Texstudio the content of the window that offers commands is also editable, so if one uses tikz commands a lot he can add those commands as well, and if one prefers pstricks, he can add only those commands to the basic latex commands. Also the fonts used in this window are small to keep the size manageable. In Texworks and Texstudio, instead of the window, the user hits the ESC key to cycle between options.

Thanks,

Per
