When I write


in texmaker, I want it to suggest flalign} as a possible choice for autocompletion. At the moment, texmaker doesn't complete \begin{flalign} automatically; as a result, it also doesn't autocomplete \end{flalign}.

I've noticed that texmaker fails to autocomplete other commands too... Is there a way to enable autocompletion for those commands in texmaker?

  • Did you check the advanced options? TeXstudio has a powerful autocompletion tool and it looks like TeXmaker.

  • TeXstudio looks cool too and I have no problems with switching so I'll try that. Does TeXstudio come with a viewer? I liked that feature in TeXmaker! Commented Jun 21, 2014 at 15:18
  • Yes, you can use its viewer embedded or in a separated window. Also you can use inverse search and a lot of tools.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a “thank you” in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say “thank you” to users who helped you.

In the menu, select User > Customize Completion. Then add \begin{flalign} to the list of commands. You can also specify arguments using @, e.g \foobar{@}.
