Mailing List Guidelines


      WinEdt Mailing List Guidelines
      ==============================

   These guidelines are sent to the WinEdt Mailing List once a month.
   Please keep them in mind when posting to the list.

   ---------------------------------------------------------------------

* What To Post

   The WinEdt Mailing List is for questions about the WinEdt editor. You
   should  not post questions concerning LaTeX, MiKTeX, BibTeX et al. to
   the mailing list. WinEdt is a shell/editor for  LaTeX  etc.  and  the
   list  is  intended  to  answer questions concerning WinEdt, not LaTeX
   etc.
   (Sometimes it might be difficult  to  decide  whether  a  problem  is
   related to WinEdt or to MiKTeX, LaTeX etc. A rule of thumb is: If you
   are having the same  problems  when  running  the  program  from  the
   command line, it is NOT related to WinEdt.)

   A lot of questions are being asked over and over  again.  Check  that
   your question isn't already answered in the WinEdt FAQ at
      <http://www.winedt.org/Doc/FAQ>
   or in the mailing list archives at
      <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/WinEdt>.

   When sending a question to the mailing list, try to be specific.
   Include (at least)
     + the Build number of your WinEdt (see "Help | About WinEdt...")

weird persistent bug

I have lived with the ff. problem for about half a year, because I 
figured it would be too hard to explain and diagnose. But it just 
happened again for the 100th time, so here goes. Sometimes when I am 
editing a letx file in Winedt (version 5.4, 20050701), a highlighting 
bug starts. From some point in the text, all text is highlighted forward 
or back, as if I was holding down the shift key. There is no way to 
escape it. Eventually I quit Winedt, and Yap simultaneously crashes 
(always). I then restart and go back to my merry ways.

Winedt and Miktex 2.5

Does anyone know how to make Winedt recognize miktex 2.5?

Daniel

Re: Winedt and Miktex 2.5

hi Daniel

If you have installed Miktex 2.5 to its default location.

add the path to system variables.

control panel
system
advanced tab
enviromental variables
highlight path in system variables and edit
add
;C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.5\miktex
save
its a stop gap without to much altering of system files in winedt

hope this helps.

Peter

Re: Winedt and Miktex 2.5

;C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.5\miktex\bin

do apologise I forgot to add "bin" to the end of path so the path is as 
above.

The name of a file as opposed to... the name of the file

I've found a very interesting reading in the docs where the
following is being claimed in "Registers and Variables".

      %f Current File's Name
      %d Current File's Drive
      %p Current File's Path
      %n Current File's Name
      %t Current File's Type

Now, do i miss something or is there an ambiguity about
the name of the file?

AW: The name of a file as opposed to... the name of the file

Hi Konrad

The ambiguity lies only in the naming of the items:

%f: Full path information of the current file, 
    i.e. directory, name and type

%n: Name of the current file (without the type!)

The same is true for the other types of registers (%F / %N and %!f / %!n),
too.

If you should forget the meaning, just run the macro
	Prompt("%%f: %f%\%%d: %d%\%%p: %p%\%%n: %n%\%%t: %t");

It will display the differences of the registers.
