#50 Show List of Labels in Navigator

Tino Weinkauf

It would be nice to have an equivalent of TeXRef (Emacs'

package) in TXC. This would let the user keep track of

labels, avoiding duplicates, and making it easier to find
existing label (very useful for long, complex


The existing function in TXC works only
a sectionning or some other command is immediately
followed by a label. But labels can be inserted anywhere in the text.
Raphaels idea is that they should also be available in the navigator

Moreover, a specific list of labels might help the user
keep track of the labels he defines, and avoid

This List of Labels should appear in the Objects-
Tab of the Navigator - under a new node called "Labels" (I think, the
german word would be "Labels" as well?!)

    Thanks for a great editor. I really like it. The only issue that I
    have so far is on the subject of equations. I have lots of
    equations in different sections. Usually it is easy to remember
    where the equation is, it is just a question of navigating to it
    to find the \label insert a \ref.

    My suggestion is to list all equations with labels in the
    navigation bar under their relevant section header (in the
    Structure view as well / in preference to the Objects tab). I
    guess that this would not be too difficult to do as a first
    step. Other labels in the text could also be shown under the
    section heading with a different icon.

    Checking for duplicates is a nice-to-have, but I wouldn't say
    that it was _that_ useful

    You will be laughing, but we already implemented the parsing
    for equations. This was 1 or 2 months ago. Therefore, it is
    not released yet. The next release will contain it. Please,
    don't ask me, when the next release will be coming. I do not

    If you are familar with CVS and compiling, then you might
    consider building your own TXC from the source. There will
    be no support for it! Anyway, the CVS is in a quite stable
    state at the moment.

    We still need a list of all labels.
