I am new to the MikTeX user list. I have tried to register but did not receive
any answer, so I am trying to post this mail anyhow.
Recently I have installed MikTeX 2.9 and got a problem with yap inverse
search. Note that I do use my own editor (keditw) since many years, and
since I have configured this with many macros to my own needs I do not wish
to switch to another editor. As a test I have downloaded WinEdt and with that
editor the problem which I will describe does not occur. But until recently I
had used MikTeX 2.7 and everything went fine with my own editor.
The error which appears in my editor when I double click in the file foo.dvi is
as follows: suppose the file foo.tex has the path d:\rq\texwork, so that its
whole fileid is d:\rq\texwork\foo.tex. Then, when trying to invoke inverse
search by double clicking in foo.dvi the following error message appears:
Invalid fileid: D:\Rq\texwork\/RQ/TEXWORK/FOO.TEX
It appears that the variable %f , which is described as "fully qualified name of
the input file" in the options menu of the inverse search, puts the path in front
of the filename but uses the slash "/" in place of the backslash "\" which is
used in my windows XP. Hence it is not recognized by my editor as a fileid
but as a filename and hence the editor again puts the path in front of it, this
time with backslash. Of course this yields an invalid fileid.
Does any one know how to fix this? Perhaps by causing %f to output the
Thanks a lot for any tip.
