### Preview FAQ: colors


How to customize foreground and background colors in previews,
compatible with the tightpage option, and both dvips and pdflatex backends?

--

Ideally, with a preamble such as

\usepackage{color}
\pagecolor{blue}
\color{red}
\usepackage[active,tightpage]{preview}

the output would have red text on blue background on each page, and the
correct tight bounding box. But this is not the case: only the
\pagecolor is understood and only by pdflatex.

We can add hooks to each preview to add the foreground color.

\g <at> addto <at> macro\preview{\color{red}}

It works. Well, what about adding the \pagecolor there as well? The
problem is that the special postscript code from \pagecolor interferes
with the postscript code generated by the tightpage option (the bounding
box info appears after the color info in the generated postscript, but
it should appear before). Nevermind, we'll generate our own. The
relevant code is

\color{blue}\special{ps::clippath fill}

### Supporting biber

Greetings, I'm the current biber maintainer and I'd like to submit
patches to AUCtex to support biber (and probably biblatex). Is there
any work underway to do this already and is there a procedure for
getting commit access? I'm a long time AUCTeX user and reasonably
elisp conversant.

### Feature request: Reftex, open paper at point using "file" field.

It would be nice if reftex could use the "file" field of a bibtex item
to open up the actual article. I can imagine two places where one
would want to do this. One is in the *RefTeX Select* buffer that
appears when running 'reftex-citation, where it would be nice if I
could press a key, and the article would open up (preferably using
xdg-open, or whatever AUCTeX defaults to for the given filetype).
Another case is when the point is on some \cite command in a tex file.

It seems like reftex and auctex already has most of the machinery in
place needed to do this, it is mostly a matter of combining them, and
binding the keys?

There is a small snippet on emacswiki/reftex doing something similar,
but there the "file" field is not used, but it all depends on strict
and consistent naming of the pdf's. Beeing able to follow the "file"
field seams cleaner, and sure makes it easier using bibtex/articles
exported by e.g zotero.

If Reftex can catch an arbitrary string from an arbitrary field it could
be combined with ffap or even just async-shell-command, I guess.  I
agree, it would be nice.

### Patches for biber/biblatex

Greetings, I have patches to four AUCTeX files which implement better
support for biber and biblatex in AUCTeX 11.86. Is there a procedure
for getting these evaluated/committed?
