Hi,

I'm using Kile as a universal editor for TeX, fortran etc. sources. However, in my latest version (Kile 2.0.82 with KDE 4.2.2) the highlighting for some file modes disappears on save. This happens in particular with the Sources/Fortran and Other/Makefile modes (not with LaTeX, bibTeX and related). The mode does not change on save, but the highlighting is switched to "None". Quite annoying. Is there some subtle settings feature which I have missed? The same problem does not occur in Kate.

Thanks for any advice. Otherwise, Kile is great!

Hi,
I find the quick preview feature very useful. When writing papers, however, I would like to quickly have a preview of the current section. AFAIK the current kile version has neither a shortcut for a quick preview of the whole section nor a shortcut to select a whole section. So, I need to manually select the section (quite annoying) and then make a quick preview of the selection. Either a shortcut for a quick preview of the section or a shortcut to select a section would be really great.

BTW thanks for the great app!

The file tips.cpp is generated from the tips file. So it could be that your KDE tools generate a tips.cpp that your compiler doesn't like. What is your KDE and gcc version?

Would be nice to see a changelog here in the program description, because at the moment it is not really clear for me what has changed now with the release of kile 1.9.1

Besides that: I just finished a very important project work with kile - I was a latex beginner, and kile helped me, it is just awesome!

I always recommend kile to edit LaTeX because it's simply the best. less things/markup to remember, etc

but I like vim-latexsuite's folding better. I tend to 'prune' the document with vim after creating it with kile :)

Hi,

Ofcourse Kile is good, but nethertheless i was disappointed when I tried it. Like Texmaker it lacks support for german quotation marks. In my texts i use quotation marks very often and i don't want to cogitate whether I have to type "` for an opening or "' for a closing quotation mark. In XEmacs and AUCTex this automatical replacement works very fine. As long as Kile does not a similar feature it is rather useles for me.

Ciao !

You could as well use the package csquotes with its commands \enquote and \blockquote . These make quotation tasks much easier and allow you to switch between german, english french or whatever quotation style you prefer.

..the same with me: I finished my B.Sc. thesis using Kile - never ran into any problems. I like it much more than Winedt (which I use on Windows systems), because it's easier to configure and comes with more built-in features. Keep on the great work!
