Automate inserting

  1. Oct 17, 2011 #1
    Folks,

    How do I automate inserting the tags [tex] ... [/tex]. At the moment I am manually writing this in for each expression which is laborious.

    THanks

    Re: Automate inserting [ tex ] [ /tex ]

    In the Advanced Editor (accessed via Go Advanced or QUOTE) click the Σ button and click on a symbol you want to insert in the Latex Reference. (The Σ button isn't available in the non-technical discussion forums such as this one.)

    Hi Drgreg,

    I dont think I explained my self clearly...

    Jut like there is a button on the toolbar which auto inserts [STRIKE][/STRIKE], etc etc. How do you create one for [tex][/tex]?

    Thanks

    Sorry, we don't have a button that does exactly what you want, but what I said before goes part-way to what you want (did you try it?).

    By the way, both of your posts in this thread were not fully readable because if you put a tag in your message if will be interpreted as a tag and won't be visible in the message. Note how I've inserted some spaces in the quote above to make it readable; compare with your original message.
