This question already has an answer here:
Though TeXlipse is a great tex editor, one complaint I have is the lack of hot keys for common style formatting for characters such as bold italic. I found the preference of TeXlipse has an page on style completion which seems to deal with the problem. My understanding of the usage of this feature is:
- select a word
- Press Ctrl+space (on windows, the key is Ctrl+Alt+space)
- A window pops up and I can choose the format style listed in the style completion page in the preference.
However when I hit the enter to choose a format style, nothing happens? It seems that Eclipse ignores my action. Does anyone encounter this problem? And what is the alternative way to fast
format characters using TeXlipse?
