Thread: Latex editor with dictionary

  1. #1

    Default Latex editor with dictionary

    Dear all,
    I am looking for a latex editor for the latest opensuse that can have also dictionary support (and why not some syntax checking too).

    What do you have to suggest me?

    Lyx is very good.
    Check out at LyX | LyX – The Document Processor

    openSUSE Leap 15.0 - 64 bit
    KDE Plasma 5.12.15

    Thanks a lot for your answer
    Do you have an opensuse package for 12.1 ?

    Get LyX 2.02 - the second on the list when I went to software.opensuse.org: Search Results.

    It uses the LibreOffice dictionaries and thesauri - make sure you select the language in Document>Settings>Language to get the dictionary you want - and also make sure that you have the LibreOffice dictionaries you want installed.

    Lyx is not really a Latex editor it has its own syntax. A latex editor
    would be kile (available from the standard repositories as is Lyx).

    And here are my 2ct:

    TexMaker has been the best option I found for my needs so far. I use it with Xetex and it has syntax highlighting and a dictionary, and I think it is cross platform (even though I have used it only on OpenSuse). It is in the repos.
    Main box: OpenSuse 12.3)/KDE 4.10 64bit
    Older Box: OpenSuse 12.2/KDE 4.8.5 64bit (my mediabox)
    Laptop: Debian Wheezy/KDE 4.8.4 64bit

    But I can load a LaTeX file into LyX, edit it - including spellchecking - and then save it as a LaTeX file; the interface is different from Kile which I also use because Kile is better for some things and LyX for others. LyX 2 offers a range of tools which aren't available in Kile such as spellchecking - including in more than one language - change management and collaborative editing.

    I can edit a text file in Libre Office or in Kate - each have features the other does not.

    No doubt, I also use both kile and lyx for years. It just sounds a bit
    indirect to me and I wanted to throw in a pure latex editor and spell
    checking works for me well with openSUSE 11.4 with kile 2.1.

    Also spell checking in several languages works for me in kile (english
    and german in my case).

    How do you stop it spellchecking the LaTeX commands?

    Not sure what you point to.
    The commands are not spell checked for me. But some of the options are,
    for example
    Code:
    \documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{letter}
    the \documentclass is not spell checked (and no other command starting
    with \) but a4paper, 10pt and letter are (and marked as wrong when set
    to german). I simply ignore that, though it is probably worth a bug
    report or enhancement request since in
    Code:
    \end{letter}
    it is correctly identified that letter is a parameter and is not spell
    checked.
