I am currently using TexMaker on Windows to write my LaTeX documents. However, I would be very interested in a feature like RefTex (emacs module for bibtex) that would allow me to search directly in my bibtex files. TexMaker just do auto-complete on the keys of the bibtex what is far less convenient.

Do you have an idea to help me ?

Why don't you use emacs on windows? It works there.

If you are interested in working with bibtex files, there is also jabref which is a nice bibliography manager. It is fully cross-platform.

Ok maybe have I no choice. I found TexMaker quite convenient (and btw I already had an operating system) but I will try emacs on windows anyway. – Elenaher Jul 27 '11 at 10:37
