Re: Erase Output Files ...

I've got a similar problem both with this and other macros.
It seems that version 5.4 associated some macros with
some menus, where 5.5 expects something else.

Unfortunately, following the installation procedure from the
website that tells you how to solve your old configuration
seems to be the problem. Is that right?

I mean, if you keep your old config it doesn't work.
If that is true, the option then would be to install clean
from scratch, and then reinstall manually any additional macro
or setting you've got.

For me, this is turning out to be a quite painful and time consuming
business. Would anyone recommend something else that is more
efficient/productive?

What is my mistake?

Let us know which macros and what kind of problems do you have
with 5.5 expecting something else?

As far as I know there are only two changes like this:

EraseWorkingFiles and FindErrors

they affect only two menu items. Both are documented in the
News... Reloading the default Search and Tools menu solves both
"problems" without any need to manually modify anything else
that comes with WinEdt.

Did you really encounter anything else? Let us know...

No. If you follow the instructions and use Backup, Restore,
Default intelligently there are no problems.

Upgrading and keeping old configuration as is (without reading
what's New and make an educated decisions on what new features
you want to import into your configuration) is something that
should not be done. At best you are missing many/ all
improvements and new features and a few things may not work at
all... Why bother upgrading if your old settings are your
largest priority?

Try Options -> Maintenance -> Default and load the default
settings for all components and individual menus except for
those that you have manually modified and you want to
preserve...

It should not take more than a few minutes.

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...")
     + your operating system (e.g.: "Windows 2000, Service Pack 2")
     + a detailed description of the problem and how to reproduce it.

   If you have received one or more answers that  solved  your  problem,
   you  can  give  something  back  to the WinEdt community by writing a
   summary that can be integrated in the WinEdt FAQ. You can either send
   it to the list, or directly to the maintainer of the FAQ.

   Do NEVER post your registration key. Nobody needs to know it.

* How To Post

   Use plain-text format. Not everybody can (or wants to) read HTML.

   Use a meaningful subject line that will  make  sense  to  the  people
   whose help you are trying to get.

   Do not quote entire messages just to add a few lines at the beginning
   or  end.  Instead, quote the parts to which you are directly replying
   or quote enough to establish the context.
   Everybody on the list has already received the message that  you  are
   quoting,  and anyone searching the archive will find your message and
   the previous message listed under the same thread.

   Do not start a new thread by replying to  an  unrelated  message  and
   just  changing  the  subject  line.  For people who group messages by
   threading in their mailer, your  mail  will  appear  as  one  of  the
   replies  to the original message. It is better to start a new message
   for a new thread.

   The preferred language on the WinEdt Mailing List  is  English.  This
   does  not  imply disrespect to other languages, but simply guarantees
   the best possible communication as English is the language  that  the
   largest number of subscribers are able to understand.

   Since the WinEdt list has been used for unwittingly spreading viruses
   in  e-mail  attachments  in the past, all attachments will be removed
   from your mails. All relevant  documents  (if  any)  are  text  files
   anyway, which you can include in the body of your message.

   Do not request return receipts.

   If you are "out of office" and you want to set up  an  auto-responder
   for  your  e-mail  account,  please   unsubscribe   from   the   list
   temporarily!

* Unsubscribing + More

   To unsubscribe from the WinEdt Mailing List, send an empty  mail  to:
   <winedt+list-unsubscribe <at> wsg.net>  from  the  account  that  you  are
   subscribed with.

   DO NOT send a mail to the list! This will have no effect  apart  from
   annoying the subscribers.

   List can be found here: <http://www.winedt.org/Doc/listinstr.php>

emacs(auctex) and winedt,which is more efficient?

just as subject

Re: emacs(auctex) and winedt,which is more efficient?

As this is the WinEDT list and not the Emacs list,
there is probably near-universal consensus that
the answer is WinEDT.  You might like to ask the
same question on an Emacs list, though, just to
avoid any slight risk of bias ...

Yes, it's a bit like walking into the A.C. Milan supporters' club and asking
which team is best A.C. Milan or Inter Milan.

Cheers all,  Phil

Search and replace only in Math environment

Hi

I have a large document in which I need to search and
replace all X's with Y's, but only in the Math
environments (Math mode). Can Winedt do this?

Thanks

Re: Search and replace only in Math environment

Hi

I think search for $...$ and you will only get that change.
I dont thing inside equations they can be searched separately though.

RE: Search and replace only in Math environment

Hello,

Rugular expressions can do this, but you will need to craft one for each
math environment and do multiple passes if you have more than one X in
each environment.

For example, to replace \[x=mc^2\] on one or multiple lines, replace:

\\\[\(0**\)x\(1**\)\\]
with
\\\[\0y\1\\\]

And for $x=mc^2$, replace "\\\[" and "\\]" with "\$". 

Then, a couple of "replace all" should do the trick.

RE: Search and replace only in Math environment

If it REALLY is X to Y, then, with probability 1, "x" as a whole word may
only appear in a formula.
