I like some of the features provided by the Vim-LaTeX suite, but not all of them.
In particular, I dislike all of the mappings like
[[ = \left[ \right] and the automatic placeholder stuff with
<++>. I am a very fast typist but with that comes more typing mistakes, which I correct almost instantly by pressing backspace. Unfortunately, if something has automatically added a bunch of place-holders or expanded some expression, I then have to move around the document and remove more characters than necessary. For example, if I accidentally press
[ twice, instead of only having to delete one character, I have to delete 10.
Having already looked through the documentation, and some of the source, I have managed to disable some of these "features", but not all of them:
let g:Tex_SmartKeyBS = 0 let g:Tex_SmartKeyQuote = 0 let g:Tex_SmartKeyDot = 0
(Turn off maps for backspace, double quote and triple dot.)
let g:Imap_UsePlaceHolders = 0
<++> placeholder insertion.)
But I can't seem to find a way of turning off the other stuff. Anyone have any suggestions?
Edit: I was able to "disable" some more things by setting:
let g:Tex_Leader = '`tex' let g:Tex_Leader2 = ',tex'
(Which stops some expansions but still not all. It's not really disabling it but just making it less likely that you're going to type in
`texa as opposed to the potentially more common
`a, for example.)
PS: Personally, I think it is very poor practice to make an optional package that, when installed, greatly changes the default handling of your system. I don't mind some intelligent source highlighting etc, or some new commands (that don't clobber any old ones), but it seems unhelpful to enable this drastic kind of key remapping by default.
