I am trying to transition to Latex Suite for Vim, but it seems to have several problems, observe: Latex Suite Screenshot

The first \subsection command (90) is shown but the second one (124) is not. Again the third one is (132), but the fourth one isn't (154). A similar problem exists for the figure (163). There is other strange behaviour too, sometimes the \begin{itemize} doesn't fold at all, other times, only its individual items fold.

There seems to be no method to this madness, if I issue any of the commands

  • za
  • zM
  • zR

nothing really changes. If I have word wrap set, folding and unfolding might result in the entire line disappearing (until I scroll down).

Is this problem specific to me (ie. am I using it incorrectly, installed it incorrectly...) or is Latex-suite unreliable?

    zE deletes all folds

  • @cmhughes these 'folds', they exist in memory right? As in if I reopen the file (or press F6... which doesn't work for me btw) then I get them back right?

    @cmhughes WOW doing zE then reloading the file works! Is there any way to do it without reloading the file?

  • In a comment to my answer you stated that you have problems with your VIM configuration. Are you sure that what you percieve isn't effectively a problem with your local setup?

  • @DevSolar No the configuration issue was with remapping ; and :. That might be why F6 and \rf don't work, but I don't think it has anything to do with folding. In any case, I removed the option as you suggested as it is distracting.

Not a "solution" to your problem, but I found the folding feature to be mostly in the way.

The line

let g:Tex_AutoFolding = 0

in my ~/.vimrc "solved" that problem for me. ;-)

    you mean you manually reset the fold? via \rf I suppose? I am running into problems with my .vimrc file. A lot of commands like \rf or F6 are not working for me so I can't test that out

  • @puk: No, I don't use folding at all. I use the above .vimrc line to keep LaTeX Suite from folding files on opening them. (I feel that folding stuff away from view is more a hindrance than a help, both with LaTeX and programming source.)

  • @puk: As for .vimrc troubles, since I am constantly moving between machines, I have stored my .vimrc configuration online. Perhaps this "known good" (and commented) configuration might help you.

  • To "celebrate" a recent upvote, that .vimrc of mine is now located here.
