When Emacs is in AUCTeX's LaTeX mode, the command LaTeX-insert-item (C-c C-j or M-<Ret>) starts with a new \item in an itemize (or similar) environment. According to the AUCTeX manual, the command should be aware of the tabular environment and yield a new line in the table (with the &s and \\). This is not working for me (Emacs 24.3.1, AUCTeX 11.87). Any idea?

    Which manual are you reading? You're using an outdated version of AUCTeX, this feature has been introduced later. You have to update the package, use Emacs's package manager – giordano Jan 8 '16 at 17:44
  • Used Emacs's package manager, resulting in latex-mode not working anymore. Probably there is a conflict with the previous installed auctex. – Christof Jan 8 '16 at 20:28
  • Re-installed Emacs (apt-get) and AUCTeX (Emacs package manager), everything seems fine now. – Christof Jan 8 '16 at 21:12

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because a system update solve the problem – Romain Picot Jan 12 '16 at 8:25
