#348 making \ backslash letter-like

backslash (2)

In editing, I often want to jump left or right (ctrl-left arrow or ctrl-right arrow) to a macro, and land on the \, not on the first letter of the macro. Would it be possible to make this a choice in the configuration options?

Many thanks,

    For some reason, the backslash I typed in the message above didn't get saved. It should read: "and land on the \, not on the first letter..."

    I.e., \here not \here
          ^          ^

    Not sure it's easy. That motion is handled in the underlying editor component (QCodeEdit), which only has a concept of words not of tex commands. I will have a look when I have time (no high priority).

    Btw. for writing backslashes in plain text here, you have to escape them (i.e. write \\)
