Not able to view the DVI file

Hi all

I recently installed WinEdt in my new laptop (running Windows 7) and I cannot open DVI files. I get the following message:

"gs: Interpreter revision (900) does not match gs_init.ps revision (860)."

I can covert dvi to ps or to pdf and see it with GSView or Adobe, but I would like to be able to see it as a dvi with Yap so that I can link it directly to my tex-code.

I am not sure what went wrong during the installation process and have tried to fix it by installing it again but with no positive results. I have installed WinEdt several times in the past 10 years and never had an issue, so I'm wondering if someone had a similar issue and how he/she got it solved?

Thanks!!

Adding a template to the Document tab

Hi,

I have WinEdt 6 running on a Vista machine.  I'd like to add a template 
to the New Document option of the Document drop-down menu.  I have 
templates for memos, proposals, letters etc. for my business and it 
would be very convenient if I can ad them for quick access.  How can I 
do this?

Thanks,

Walt

Re: Basis information about working with WinEdt

Hello Sotiris,
thanks for the reply - I guess it's natural that the help is a good 
place to look - but you know what I mean. And they want to sell the 
software, so... :)

Have a nice evening
Manuel

I did not come upon this issue but I do know that it has nothing to
do with WinEdt and thus reinstalling WinEdt will not help.

Try to start YAP directly from Windows Start Menu and then Open the
same dvi file using YAP's Open Dialog. What happens?

You appear to have more than one version of Ghostscript on that
machine (perhaps one that comes with MiKTeX and another one
installed manually) and that's why yap reports an error when it
tries to do load gs. Installing GS on Win7 without proper
privileges may have to do with the confusion. Removing your custom
version of GS might resolve the problem or else search for
gs_init.ps files and see what is there....

On Win7 I no longer bother installing custom GS and personally I
don't use ps format or GSView -- but if you do make sure that their
installers are Win7 compatible.

I am quite sure that WinEdt has nothing to do with this one...

Best regards,

alex

The button New with a drop-down menu is defined in Toolbar (Options
Interface). You will find something like:

  BUTTON="New"
    TYPE=6
    MENU="New"
    MENU="-"
    MENU="$New_ASCII_Doc"
    MENU="$New_ANSI_Doc"
    MENU="$New_DATA_Doc"
    MENU="$New_Macro_Doc"
    MENU="$New_HTML_Doc"
    MENU="$New_TeX_Doc"
    MENU="$New_BibTeX_Doc"
    MENU="-"
    MENU="New_Document"

The Menu items refer to Items defined in the Main Menu. There you
will find something like:

  ITEM="$New_ASCII_Doc"
    CAPTION="&ASCII Document"
    IMAGE="DocASCII"
    MACRO="NewDoc('ASCII');"
etc...

in an invisible menu Alternatives.

Assuming that you place a template Memo.tex in %b\Templates\Custom

  ITEM="$New_Memo"
    CAPTION="&Memo Document"
    IMAGE="DocTeX" // or whatever you want to see in the drop-down
    MACRO="NewDoc('TeX');InsFile("%b\Templates\Custom\Memo.txt);GoToBeginningOfFile;"
etc...

Reload the Main Menu. In toolbar you can now add in New Button
Definition:

    MENU="$New_Memo"

reload the toolbar. And so on for your custom templates (and you
can remove any that you don't want from the default drop-down
button since it can get too long to be of use).

This part of WinEdt is 100% user-customizable. Comments in ini
files provide additional info.

Best regards,

alex

I think he refers to 
	Help > Macro Manual
and then in the index to the point
	My User Interface (MUI)
which is about a quarter from the bottom.
Alternatively you could search for "mui" in the index of the Macro Manual.

Best regards,
Stefan

Handling many open files

I often have a lot of files opened and I often need to switch
between them. I loose a lot of time screening the tabs to find a
specific file - even if they are sorted alphabetically. What can I
do to speed this up?

Doesn't "Windows - MDI-Windows" give you the chance to switch to the 
desired file efficiently?

Not really: The list is fixed and contains the complete pathes, you
can't sort it and skimming through the entries is difficult. 

What I really would like is something similar to what you can do in
emacs: To be able to type a short cut and then the first chars of
the file name and enter to select it. And to be able to see a list
of all opened files and to scroll through it.
