For some reason I end up pressing Ctrl+Click (that is, control plus left mouse button click) on Gedit. I do this because I use Ctrl+Click for some other apps. Anyway, when I do that on Gedit with the Latex plugin, The embedded preview pane starts up. Doing it again does *not* close it however.
This is annoying because A) I don't normally use the embedded preview pane, and B) the embedded preview pane sometimes crashes my gedit.
So, not sure why the control click initiates that, but maybe this report helps.
Cheers, and many thanks for the plugin.
