I am using vim-latex and get several warnings stating Wrong length of dash may have been used pointing to a hyphen inside cite or newcite tags. How to I tell vim-latex to ignore certain warnings?

  • Hi. Can you include an MWE (minimal working example) so that we know what packages you are using. Jan 26, 2017 at 4:13

    Would the silence package be helpful? I use it to get rid of some hyperrep warnings that clutter my log files.

for those that are looking for it just mark the line as checked Example:

\draw[-Latex] (A) -- (B)% chktex 8

More info: How can I tell chktex that I have checked the next line?


Alternatively, you can change chktex to lacheck in the .vimrc file

let g:syntastic_tex_checkers = ['lacheck']

It doesn't complain about this dash issue.
