Recently I have been searching for a good text editor to ge a practical way
to read my source file (.tex). I have found emacs with aucTeX which works
perfectly to read a source file since there is the following advantages
which we do not find in Kile :
- a great highlighting which enable the reader to get a clear understanding
of the main text and the footnotes. Indeed, the footnote are underlined and
highlighted (which is, I think, a great feature for someone writing a report
or anything else requiring a lot of footnotes). Also, we can get with aucTeX
highlighting for \section, \chapter, etc, and underlining for \emph.
- secondly, a really great feature is formating of all the source file when
we enter "M-X" and "LaTeX-fill-buffer". When we write with Kile, the
indentation is not really improved, and my source file is not "beautiful",
which lead to a difficult task when reading the source code. Also, footnotes
are moved to the right when formating.
- finally the preview of some parts of the source file (
http://www.gnu.org/software/auctex/preview-latex.html) is also a well known
feature of aucTeX, really great.
Would it be possible to ask you to integrate these feature in Kile. I have
been using Kile since I have begun to write with LaTeX, and I would
appreciate these features. Also, I hope other users and developers of Kile
will consider my demand as appropriate.
