Two problems with non-alphanumerics
Submitted by jhaefner on Friday, 25 September, 2015 - 22:08
Hi,
I'm using ver 5.1 on Ubuntu 14.10 using MATE ver 1.8.2 on a Dell Latitude 3450 laptop. I've noticed two problems that were not in Jedit 4.* but may be due to my setup.

1. A short-cut defined for CTRL+. (ie, control plus period) does not work. Other shortcuts with alphanumeric works. (Just noticed that "ALT+." works, so it must be me...???
2. An abbreviation with containing a non-alphanumeric does not work. The match algorithm stops at the non-alphanumeric. So, an abbreviation like "\bf" (w/o the quotes) does not work, but "bf" does get expanded.

If this is an issue with Jedit, I'd like to know how/if the above can be fixed. Obviously a work around is possible. If it is a problem with my laptop, any help from a guru would be appreciated.

Jim

Hi, have You checked that the standard abbreviations work, i.e. "->" ?
See Global Options -> Abbreviations.

non-alpha abbreviations

Hmmmm, yes the -> is expanded as an arrow. This result stimulated me to try the problem in both the "tex" and "latex" editing modes. No problems in the latex mode, but, as stated in the original query, the tex mode ignores non-alphanumerics.

I'll leave it to the experts to decide if this behavior is a bug or a feature. For me, since I use latex in any case, I'll just move my abbreviations to the latex editing mode.

Thanks for the help.
