AUCTeX is an extensible package for writing and formatting TeX files in GNU Emacs and 4 See Also; 5 Project Pages; 6 Tutorial Pages. In this post, I’ll outline how to get started with emacs. There are plenty of tutorials out there, but I’d say that the best way to learn is just to jump in.

You can then try to fix it in the document buffer, and use the same keystrokes to get to the next error.

For now, I am experimenting with doing local. If a latex run produces or changes input files for makeindexthe next suggestion will be to run that program, and AUCTeX knows that you need to run latex again afterwards—the same holds for BibTeX.

Apr 15 ’12 at 9: For learning more about Emacs its internal help is good.

I would tutkrial reiterate that YASnippet is wonderful for template text and is very configurable. Below you find an. What a fantastic, and encouraging, answer! Depending on what kind of writing you are doing, it will also be a rather good idea to learn to write your own Emacs macros.

Longborough Apr 6 ’12 at 9: You can see the help options by doing C-h? Yes, that is the one. We also assume that you are familiar with the way keystrokes are written in Emacs manuals. If there is a syntactical error in your file, latex will not complete successfully. This procedure may be repeated until all errors have been dealt with.


Emacs has built-in support for many revision control systems. If auctexx, have a look at the Emacs Tutorial in the Help menu.

Often you proceed by finding snippets on the net which you paste into your. It includes a general description of a workflow for LaTeX but without a particular editor in mind and a short description on how to implement it via Org-mode and AUCTeX. I would also add that Org-mode is a wonderful tool and has a lot of features outside of LaTeX integration. It even can differentiate between mandatory and optional arguments—for details, see Completion. If no region is selected, the command will be inserted with empty braces, and you can start typing the changed text.

What you do is to write an org file and export it to beamer.

The view will be split in two windows, the output will be displayed in the lower buffer, and both buffers will be centered around the place where the error ocurred. Configuring Emacs is a never-ending process. If applicable, you will be asked whether you want to save changes, and which program you want to invoke.

Emacs has full support for unicode and it has auto-completion for most commands. The relevant portions of my. Another way to create beamer slides is via another Emacs mode called Org-mode which is a mode for keeping notes, maintaining TODO lists, doing project planning, and authoring.

As an example, when I started to use Emacs I thought its way of opening files and switching between buffers was complicated and awkward so I tended to use menus and the toolbar for these tasks.

Longborough You can retroactively add a bounty.

AUCTeX is best later in the process. Once you can handle the basics you should try to do some of your work in Emacs. Next, you will be asked for the printed title of the section, and last you will be asked for a label to be associated with the section.

AUCTeX is a powerful program offering many features and configuration options. So if you are looking for some additional motivation to revisit Emacs, I would suggest looking at what Org-mode can do. But there will still be a lot of things to be done by hand.
