Textures has synchronicity and flash, and (under MacOS 9) you can couple it to BBEdit. The collapsing outlines are called "text folding" in Qued/M. I've been suggesting that Bare Bones add this to BBedit for some years, but the amount of work is substantial and they haven't done it. Perhaps if they heard from several people on this list? On the subject of editors, I use the full version of BBEdit on OS X, so I haven't looked at the new 6.1 BBEdit Lite on X...does it support TeX syntax colorization? If so, that would seem to me to solve the issue of a good and free editor to use with any TeX implementation on OS X.

No, nor will it ever likely support syntax coloring. This is a feature reserved for the full version of BBEdit. -- Christian Smith  |  [hidden email]  |  http://web.barebones.comPGP Fingerprint  -  60E5 2216 97D2 1D1A B923 F036 00A9 CEC0 D411 FA89 ----------------------------------------------------------------- To UNSUBSCRIBE, send email to <[hidden email]> with "unsubscribe macosx-tex" (no quotes) in the body.

I am glad that it is only in the full version -- I like getting features for my money. :-) I am very happy to see that someone from Bare Bones is reading this list and I would like to see you comment on this idea of collapsible outlines or sections in BBEdit. If I understand this correctly, it would work much like sections work in Mathematica in which you can collapse a section or subsection into just its heading by double-clicking a appropriate cell bracket. Is this correct? If so, I would love to see this in BBEdit (I would also love to see it work with TeXShop, but that is another story). Best regards, --     Gary L.

It would seem with the way LaTeX enviroments work you  could just treat every \begin and \end as a marker defining a section. I would also like a bit more syntax colouring like colouring the $signs.

Agreed! Those of you who would like to see this come back to BBEdit should write them and let them know. It used to be there and they said that some people asked them to remove syntax coloring for math mode. I have asked a couple of times to bring it back, but apparently I am not enough. :-) --     Gary L.

## [Mac OS X TeX] BBEdit Lite 6.1 and CMacTeX

 In reply to this post by Gary L. Gray Since BareBones Software has released BBEdit Lite 6.1 for OS X I have revised CMacTeX so that it works correctly with it. The BBEdit scripts released with CMacTeX only work with the full version of BBEdit since BBEdit Lite does not have much scripting support. The scripts have been replaced with plug-ins which work with either version of BBEdit. I have also reorganized the various .map files used by dvips and pdftex and have expanded the section of the User's Guide dealing with installation and initial configuration. The OS X version of CMacTeX can be downloaded from the OS X section of the CMacTeX Home Page at http://www.kiffe.com/cmactex.html.
