I'm currently working on my bachelor thesis with texstudio. There is a tool integrated which is quite helpful for making improvements in my writing style. It is called "word repetition" and marks up words which are repeated within a small word distance. I want this tool to look up the a lager distance to improve my document but don't know where to find the advanced options.

  • The scope of the word repetition check is in terms of words, not sentences. Under language -> internal grammar check? – Troy Oct 18 '17 at 7:25
  • Yes you are right, can I maximize the distance of words? – s kop Oct 18 '17 at 7:35

    What do you mean maximize? If you want to increase the scope of the check, then you can increase the Words between repetition and Long range repetition count. (default is 3 and 10 respectively, I think). Take note the show advanced options checkbox (bottom left of the options menu) must be checked. – Troy Oct 18 '17 at 7:55
  • Sorry for my bad english I meant how to increase them just as you said. Thanks I did not find the advanced options checkbox in the settings. – s kop Oct 18 '17 at 7:57
  • No worries, glad to help :) – Troy Oct 18 '17 at 8:00

The scope of the word repetition check is in terms of words, not sentences.

The settings for word repetition check is hidden behind the Advanced Options. In the Configure TeXstudio menu, check the bottom left box that says Show Advanced Options.

Under Language -> Internal Grammar check, you will find the options to increase/decrease the length of the scope of word repetition check.

You would want to increase the numbers for the first two boxes, in your case, I believe.
