# Remove a \textit{} or \emph{} in Vim with vim-latex (LaTeX-Suite)

Thanks to this SE answer I now know that I can emphasise the highlighted word with em.

Is there a way to remove the \emph{} from a word?

The same question was asked in this question on Stack Overflow. The accepted answer by Peter Rincker is:

If you have surround.vim by Tim Pope this might do

nmap <silent> dsa ds}dF\

• Thanks Anthony. It's a pain that there're two websites really isn't it? Things tend to fall between two stools. – LondonRob Aug 29 '14 at 15:57

# Alternative Plugin vimtex

provides mapping in the spirit of surround.vim

dsc - delete surrounding command
dse` - delete surrounding environment

Plugin is currently (09/2015) maintained and actively developed in 2015.
