Hi @ all,
I am using vim latex suite for a while an I am quite happy with how it
is working. I often have to switch between tex-projects in German (using
pdflatex with biber) and project in English (using latex with bibtex).
Hence, up to now I have to change the settings in my .vimrc before I
start working on another project. These are my settings:
"vim-latex plugin settings
set grepprg=grep\ -nH\ $*
let g:tex_flavor = 'latex'
let g:Tex_BibtexFlavor = 'biber' " use biber instead of bibtex
"let g:Tex_BibtexFlavor = 'bibtex' " using bibtex
let g:Tex_UseMakefile = 0
let g:Tex_ShowErrorContext = 0
let g:Tex_AutoFolding = 0
let g:Tex_CompileRule_dvi = 'latex --interaction=nonstopmode $*'
let g:Tex_CompileRule_ps = 'dvips -o $*.ps $*.dvi'
let g:Tex_CompileRule_pdf = 'pdflatex --interaction=nonstopmode $*'
let g:Tex_FormatDependency_ps = 'dvi,ps'
let g:Tex_FormatDependency_pdf = 'pdf'
let g:Tex_MultipleCompileFormats = 'dvi,ps,pdf'
let g:Tex_DefaultTargetFormat = 'pdf'
"let g:Tex_DefaultTargetFormat = 'ps'
So before switching from a German to an English project a toggle the
comments for the Tex_DefaultTargetFormat and the Tex_BibtexFlavor (and
the spell checking options). Since this is quite inconvenient I thought
about defining two function which do the job. I added
: :set spell spelllang=de_20
: :let g:Tex_DefaultTargetFormat = 'pdf'
: :let g:Tex_BibtexFlavor = 'biber'
autocmd FileType tex :command! German :cal German()
: :set spell spelllang=en_gb
: :let g:Tex_DefaultTargetFormat = 'ps'
: :let g:Tex_BibtexFlavor = 'bibtex'
autocmd FileType tex :command! English :cal English()
to my .vimrc. When I am calling the function English the spell checking
and the bibliography settings are changed correctly. Even the default
format is changed (checked by calling :TTarget) but it is not working as
expected. After calling \ll a pdf file is still build, instead of a ps
file. Sometimes (until now I could find out under which circumstance) a
dvi is build, but not a ps like it should.
Any ideas what is wrong with my function definition? What do I have to
do in order to correctly change the default target from a function. Any
hint is appreciated.
Thanks and best regards.
