Another change seems to be required in the latex-help function, since try-completion returns the actual match in case of a partial match, but only t in case of a perfect match. This causes ltx-help to sometimes land on the top page, instead of the actual target node. Feedback appreciated. This means that abbreviations saved with C-x a l add-mode-abbrev are saved in the table text-mode-abbrev-table and become available in all buffers using text-mode.

This may not be the expected behavior. Here is how to define abbreviations that work in auctex modes only, without interfering with the standard text-mode.

In the InitFile , put:. Abbrevs defined from a file in one of the auctex modes will then be stored in the default. It provides predictive completion for normal text, as usual. But when PredictiveMode is used in LaTeX -mode, in addition it provides context-sensitive predictive completion for LaTeX commands, environments, math commands, cross-reference labels, and more besides.

Adding support for new packages is often as easy as writing a list of the new commands, and generating an appropriately named dictionary from it. The PredictiveMode user manual explains in more detail how to add support for new LaTeX packages; if you add support for a new package, consider contributing it so it can be included in the PredictiveMode package. The following screen-shots show this in action, and also demonstrate some of the different configurable ways in which the possible completion candidates can be displayed.

PredictiveMode knows where the preamble of your document starts and ends, it knows where LaTeX expects an environment name, it knows where LaTeX expects text commands and where maths commands are required, and it will offer appropriate completions in each section completions for LaTeX environments displayed here in a pop-up frame :.

This gist lets you define which symbols insert Unicode symbols, so e. Several ac-sources for the marvelous auto-completion package are available here. It allows for a context dependent completion of LaTeX tags and unicode symbols. In order to make full use of unicode functionality you need to use unicode-math package.

Of course, you also need to define this guess-TeX-master function, for example with the following snippet:. Note that it will return nil for files that do not get included in other files, which is the case for single file documents, or for the master files themselves. In this case, the TeX-master variable gets set to nil , which works. AUCTeX Just customize the output-pdf with Zathura instead of Evince.
