Thanks for your contribution, I will do my best for updating the FAQ. I
didn't manage to spend time on it for quite a long time (family and work

Surely this is possible but based on this information it is hard to
be specific.

OpenOutput('somefile.txt');
WrS('Header... - whatever this may be');
WrS('%S');
WrS('Footer... - whatever this may be');

current ingredient of txt file and parse it to extract header and
footer (as long as you can somehow recognize them). FindInString
macro with RegEx should be more than sufficient for that...

### [WinEdt] Tree building and Gather

Hi all,

I'm using WinEdt 5.4 Build 20040513.

When the project tree is built I get lines for use by the sectsty
package included e.g.  the command
\sectionfont{\sffamily\sectionrule{3ex}{3pt}{-1.5ex}{1pt}}
gives
\sffamily\sectionrule{3ex}{3pt}{-1.5ex}{1pt}
in the TOC part of the tree.

I think I have to change something in winedt.gdi to stop this but my
attempts so far have failed. Can somebody point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Allan

Options Menu -> Extended Configuration (opens WinEdtEx.ini file). There
you'll
find:

...

ITEM="\section?{?}"
MODE="TeX"
CASE_SENSITIVE=1
BEGINNING_OF_LINE_ONLY=1
CURRENT_DOCUMENT_ONLY=0
ALL_OPENED_DOCUMENTS=0
COMPLETE_PROJECT_TREE=1
ICON="Section"
etc...

You would need to copy this item (complete definition) four times and change
Item to:

### Re: [WinEdt] Tree building and Gather

Alex,

Thanks for the help.

Also, the command
\renewcommand{\refname}{Bibliography}
get gathered as a \ref{} style command.

### [WinEdt] \begin + \end and find in bibtex macro

I am not sure what happened but previously I had the following functionality which seems to have disappeared:
1. When I entered \begin{something} winedt immediately created a \end{something} line below

2. When I used the 'Find Entry' on the bibtex menu (installed using the macro) I used to press enter to insert the the key or click on the entry to actually see the entry in my bib file. Now it just inserts the entry.

Has something happened inadvertently or what?

### [WinEdt] project file error

Hi,

I'm experiencing an annoying problem with WinEdt: every time I try to close
the program, there pops up an error message saying:

"error saving the project file: C:\Program Files\WinEdt
Team\WinEdt\WinEdt.prj",

then I'd have to choose between "abort" "retry" or "ignore".

"retry" always brings the error message back, hitting "abort" then I just
can never close the program; "ignore" I have to hit several times before the
program goes ahead closing itself, and leaving me wonder what exactly I had
ignored and whether I lost any data...

Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks so much,

Jing

This is a pretty old version (back from 1998) and it predates XP by
many years.

You are probably working as a restricted user and WinEdt fails to
save the project information in its program folder because of
writing restrictions.

You are probably loosing file-list (project related information) but
this should not affect you documents.

WinEdt always starts empty and the "recent file list" in the File

Solutions:

- Open a new project WinEdt.prj in a folder where you can write
(commands in the project menu should allow you to do this).

- use a power user account

- create a user profile: I am not sure but that version has a limited
or no automatic support for profile creation and it might be best to
try a newer WinEdt 5 which does!

Best regards,

alex

ps. Very few (if any) users on this list are using a version as old
as yours (especially on XP). I don't have it installed either and
you should not expect any changes to it even if the abort..ignore
sequence may not work as intended...
