### Re: Determination of value for TeX-macro-private

The following output is tested with MiKTeX 2.7 on windows.

I have been using C-c ? to open TeX/LaTeX manuals and noticed that it has been very slow to use. My guess is that C-c ? is building a completion list each time the command is invoked. Can the performance of this command TeX-doc' be improved? Thank you, -- -- .: Leo :.

I have found AUCTeX indispensable when editting LaTeX. There are, however, two minor improvements regarding inserting some macros I would like to suggest. 1. \maketitle and the like It is better that no braces are inserted in macros like this. 2. \LaTeX and the like It is better leaving the point immediately after the closing '}'. What do you think? Best, -- -- .: Leo :.

I came across this post while I was trying to figure out what is syntax spec in font-latex-add-keywords'. I also did search of that function as well as "syntax" in the AUCTeX manual with no avail. font-latex-add-keywords' is not documented but is extensively used in style files. It seems font-latex-user-keyword-classes' and font-latex-built-in-keyword-classes' partially explain what syntax spec is. But in some style files such as beamer.el, "<" is also used. Does that mean one can supply any char as syntax spec? (font-latex-add-keywords '(("frametitle" "<[{")) 'slide-title) I am new to AUCTeX although I am trying to be fairly familiar with it so that I can easily create styles for my LaTeX editting. Thanks again for making AUCTeX better and better.

Suppose that in my TeX doc (.tex) I have ...$e^{+}$... and that I have to change the '+' (plus) sign with the '-' (minus). Then I select[*] '+' and type '-', but I got ...$e^{+-}$... and not ...$e^{-}$... I have to delete the extra '+' manually. This happens only with the '-' (minus) character. If I type any other character it works fine, i.e. selecting the '+' and typing 'a' or 'b' or... whatever, I got (correctly) ...$e^{a}$... or ...$e^{b}$... or... Another example: if in the word 'verbatim' I would change any character (say the 'i') with the '-' (minus) then selecting 'i' and typing '-' produces 'verbati-m' and not 'verbat-m'. The above happens only with AUCTeX. If I write .F, .txt, .c, .cxx etc., the examples given work just fine. Cheers, Angelo.
