Macros in texniccenter

  1. Feb 28, 2013 #1
    Hi all,

    Is there a way of getting TeXnicCenter to process these commands so I don't have to type them into the windows command line everytime something new is written?

    latex thesis
    makeindex thesis.nlo -s nomencl.ist -o thesis.nls
    bibtex thesis
    latex thesis
    latex thesis
    pdflatex thesis
    start thesis.pdf

    Or maybe a script I could load from the command prompt on Windows 8?

    Any help will be very much appreciated

    This isn't specific to TeXnicCenter, but see if your TeX distribution has a utility program like "texify" or "latexmk".

    They can automatically run makeindex, bibtex, etc if required, and rerun latex to get the cross references correct.

    I'm using MikTeX.

    'texify -p thesis.tex' worked well but not like a charm! It didn't update the nomenclature!
