I have knowledge about 'Kile' more or less. Now I am using 'Texmaker'. But there is a problem in it. In Kile when we write \begin{env} it automatically write \end{env} from the following :

Settings => Configure Kile => LaTeX => Environments => making tick mark on "Automatically complete \begin{env} with \end{env}" we can set it. But in 'Texmaker' automatic environment is not working. How can I do so.


In Texmaker, you can go to User>Customize Completion and set the \begin{...} and \end{...} that you often use. For example, the tikzpicture environment is not set by default. As I often use it, I have added




Then, when I type \begin{tik , Texmaker gives me \begin{tikzpicture}, I hit tab and I have the \begin{tikzpicture} and \end{tikzpicture} added to my document.

  • I am using 'Texmaker 1.9.9'. There is no 'Customize Completion' option under 'user'. There are two options under 'user' namely, 'User Tags' and 'User Commands'. – Md Kutubuddin Sardar May 20 '13 at 8:30

    I'm using texmaker 3.4.1 under mac os. The last version is 4.0.2 and is available here : download for all platforms. An update should be helpful. – LouisG May 20 '13 at 8:37
  • My system is 'ubuntu 10.04'. Will this version of ubuntu support'TeXmaker 4.0.2' ? – Md Kutubuddin Sardar May 20 '13 at 8:46
  • I'm not very used to ubuntu but I think that the software center should give you the answer. – LouisG May 20 '13 at 9:02
