9. General tips

  1. Remember that many clips have some built-in 'intelligence'. Don't be afraid to try the same clip when you have selected a block of text and without selection - the result is usually different. You can always press the UNDO button to return where you were before the experiment.

  2. If you would like to add something which you miss in this clipbook, please use the "Own commands..." own_commands.GIF or the "Own math commands" own_math_commands_1.GIF clips.

  3. In each menu list in dialogs you can just press the first letter of the item for quick search. Pressing it repeatedly takes you to the next item with the same first letter.

  4. Some clips ('use package' use_package.GIF , 'Environments' environments.GIF , etc.) provide an additional menus (ADD, REMOVE, SORT). These menu items start with three hyphens "---", and to move quickly to these built-in menus just press the key "-" when you see the list of packages, environments, etc. The same method is used for switching between the simple mode and the so-called advanced mode in the Font style Font_style.GIF clip.

  5. Use "Favorites" menu in NoteTab for organizing your work with multi-file LaTeX projects.

  6. Use "Search/Replace" in "All open documents" for massive changes.

  7. If you start working on the file A.TEX and want to keep the settings and all your additional tools added during your work on the file B.TEX, the following trick can be used:
    1. open the file B.TEX (all related settings will be read into memory from the file B.UZV)
    2. run the "# Settings" Settings.GIF clip and change only the main file name. When you press the OK button, the settings are saved to the file A.UZV
